AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Hispanic/Latina markets hit hard by this enforced Lockdown. They make up 14.7% of the workforce and 50% of housekeepers, & maids! Now they have no work. 20 million Americans have no work & can’t get work & Congress is debating how to pay only those who work? How are people going to live without a Basic Living Wage at this time? We’ve taken away their Healthcare & education & next is food? Stop the debate and Give income to the Lower & Middle Classes. Americans need a monetary safety net!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce NY Times well worth your time. A short history on how the American worker lost power & the rise of Corporate Influence once again. The preservation of Corporate Power is what drives Trump & TrumpsGOP to divide us. It’s what fuels his passion to let 1% of this Nation die, die to exposure to Covid. This is also our opportunity to push back against their agenda & write our own history of Survival! Take back Government for the People, by the People and incorporate a Clean Slate for Workers, as envisioned by the Roosevelt Foundation & Harvard. It’s never too late to do right. It’s our turn once again!

Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am Monday: Scrapping over the Public Purse!

Dear followers:  Before I launch into my Blog Post, expressing my thoughts and the experts’ thoughts on the latest Bill before Congress, I direct your attention  to the  collaborative political cartoons above, drawn by Justin Weingartner in 2015.  We saw our “State of Inequality” and we were alarmed by the influence of money in politics.  … More Joyce America Speaks Periscope @11am Monday: Scrapping over the Public Purse!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce 1/2 hr of Periscope chat concluded. We discussed So Korea’s 2 Nd wave of Covid and how So Korea & Germany support People Thru WiFi, affordable Healthcare, monetary support for everyone. People & Profits. In my view: we need a Social Safety net here. Stimulus for the Middle Class & Lower Classes would benefit the entire economy and give Peopke a safety net. I’m for Social Justice & Equal Opportunity! Have a blessed day. See you Tuesday at 11 am Thank you and Subscribe to my YouTube channel “TheVoiceOfJoyce.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The city needs bike riders to cut down on congestion & keep the Economy growing. Corporations will continue in business along with everyone else on these routes. Commerce is maintained and those folks , not the bikers, should pay a 5-8% infrastructure project fee. Infrastructure, a public private partnership creates and maintains jobs!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The history of the loss of employee rights &how to get them back after 50 yes. Rewrite the Government laws that made it possible for inequality to flourish. We can have a Clean Slate for Labor with a Labor friendly government, granting us higher wages & benefits and a decent wage & say in our workplace. It’s time, unless as poor as we’ve become , we enjoy giving $12,000 to the wealthy to continue their lifestyle, while we remain impoverished! Our choice.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Japan’s GDP down & no workers laid off during the Pandemic. Japan puts Corporate sustainability & labor first. They have robust testing & tracing of the virus. They where masks & social distance. Family first policy.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce You want a better future, there is no choice, DUMPTRUMP & DumpTrumpsGOP! There will never be a social safety net, equal justice or equal opportunity, under their Administrations. Look at the results: 100,000 dead from COVID-19, 40 million out of work, 50 million food insecure & poor Healthcare, Education, Connectivity, Infrastructure. VOTE! Your vote counts, that’s why GOP doesn’t want paper ballots, they’re easy, convenient & private. Don’t despair, we have a great future together! There’s a lot to be done with new jobs & better pay! Let’s write America’s story together for the 22 Nd Century.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce How does #BlackLivesMatter impact our American experience?

@earthinstitute on Twitter The strike follows a reckoning, on social media, of how a lack of diversity in many scientific fields make black students often feel unwelcome, unsupported, or even unsafe. “Every time one of us is rejected, beat down, dismissed, ridiculed, or murdered, I question why I am still in academia,” wrote Cassandra Extavour, … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce How does #BlackLivesMatter impact our American experience?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Hoping for the best isn’t a plan. The Lower & Middle Classes need stimulus to survive the Summer & Fall. Not enough money has gone to the States and more money needs to go to potential workers & entrepreneurs ! My preference: QE for the Lower & Middle Classes. We’ve been stagnating for a decade.
