This week in the War on Workers

Post by Guest on Sun Jul 17, 2011 1:52 am

On Monday, Sen. Al Franken, Rep. Sander Levin, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, former New York Times columnist Bob Herbert and Center for American Progress economist Heather Boushey joined unemployed workers to discuss the jobs crisis.

What could they possibly have to discuss in a country where JP f'ing Morgan says wage reductions have driven corporate profit increases, the 400 richest Americans are paying just over half the taxes they were 12 years ago, two-parent families are working 26 percent more hours than in 1975 and only earning 23 percent more, and fading jobless benefits are about to deal another blow to struggling families and the American economy?

What about those whose benefits faded a year ago? They need to bump it up a notch and include them in the talks. We are, after all, part of the reason that consumer confidence is so low. We are not spending at all.
