AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Plan to save our economy keeps workers and Corporations afloat. The Government becomes the lender of last resort. Unlike the Economists, I believe a one time substantial check to those barely earning a living and seniors who are struggling is also a necessity. Means testing $75,000 and less.154 million Americans.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Since the founding of our Republic, those with money have been parsimonious. After the Gilded Age, Labor Rights improved. Now that we’re in a 2 Nd Gilded Age, it’s appropriate to restore rights to Labor once again. Paid sick leave for 14 days is responsible & SavesLives. There’s no excuse, especially when Corporations have never before profited so much from Federal Policy. After giving paid sick leave to your employees, consider a minimum wage. Labor should use this time to organize and form retail, fast food, hotel, & restaurant unions. It is time for a Clean Slate for Labor.
