AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce I’m not surprised the Red Cross is refusing to pay their workers a fair wage, grant a new Union Contract, they’re a mean spirited profit driven group. The American Workers refuses to be abused and now walks off jobs that fails to pay and staff workers according to the consumers need. They’re won’t be resignations, when employers honor Union Contracts, have adequate staffing and pay and benefits.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce End Corporate extortion no subsidies unless American workers get to design and produce chips for the American market. Otherwise, Corporations belong to no Nation and are sovereign powers working for themselves. Like Exxon claiming they’re not a US Corporations & the follow policy beneficial to the US! Why give them subsidies? The American people need better wages and relief from Corporate Greed

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Good Workers Transportation Bill for air line workers specifically, will raise their minimum wage to $15/hr, give them benefits and insurance. All this to help air lines. Why can’t the government lift all wages to $15 min and increase labors participation everywhere?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Finally there is a reverse of Corporate Business taxation. Corporations have many loopholes to evade taxation overseas and in fact, limiting Corporations taxation overseas encouraged the off shoring of business and jobs. Corporations with subsidies overseas pay 5% on their income to the US Treasury. The American taxpayer is in a lose lose position now. First we lost jobs with every trade agreement, then we lost jobs when Corporations moved overseas and we lost wages when American workers were told to compete with foreign labor. Now, just like individuals who are taxed twice on income invested, the American Corporations are asked to pay their fair share and bring business back home, they’re crying that what’s already happened will happen again? Why should American business not share equally in taxation as the rest of us? America needs revenue to run . Next the Federal Government should tax all Corporate income for FICA deduction irrespective of income level. Every employee of a Corporation should pay the FICA deduction, independent of salary level. Everyone should pay their fair share. It’s patriotic!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Amazon’s Bezos pledges to change how Labor is treated or will be responsible for running out of Labor in 2 years. Poor working conditions, cause excessive accidents and burnout in Amazon warehouses, leading to 150% turnover and 6.8 accidents per 100 people. The norm is 3.3 accidents per 100 people. Still high. No wonder today’s workers are distressed in retail. We’re people and not Robots. Perhaps the new generation of Moguls ought to study successful businesses of the past to model new business? People are not machines and need tools to do their jobs. There can be decent working conditions, benefits & safety with productivity! Bring back Sectional Unionization and allow Unions to negotiate for all Retail Labor. Strengthen Labor Laws at the NLRB and enforce existing Law. Add a fair minimum wage Federally.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce TheUK is experiencing inflation and one Union leader is tackling it for her members daily. Unite has won 3 of 4 cases out of 300 for Labor. It’s not the wage proce spiral that’s causing Inflation, it’s Corporate greed. She’s going after multi National Corporation and winning price increased for Labor that are substantial. She’s, as President of, Unite has added Economists to the Unions think tank. Graham is an impressive leader who gets results for Labor.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As the Planet heats more complex Climate Catastrophes are you be expected simultaneously. Lack of water, drought, flooding and fires, creating their own system of warming. There’s a way forward with conservation and capping fossil fuels usage. We’re running out of time and must pivot to integrating renewable energy now. These are still early days in our new climate catastrophic cycle.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Mass murders occur as White Supremacists embrace Replacement Theory, espoused by Fox News & Tucker Carlson, citing Democratic platform supports refugees who will populate America & replace them. While Democrats support immigration, it’s not a priority. The facts: African Americans are 12.7% & Hispanics are 19.5% including, Puerto Rican’s. Since we’re all immigrants, does it matter? Who’s getting the low paying jobs? 70% of the American population! We’re all fighting against a small wealthy group that’s happy to see Americans fight each other instead of uniting for a better way of life.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce No wonder America is home to the highest Homicides in the world & claims more suicide as well. American workers salaries keep dropping at $22-24,000 per yr , while Corporate CEO salaries have increased to a minimum of $670-1 and $1000-1 . Corporate buy backs directly flow into thevCEO’s pay package. No wonder American Labor is the working poor. Where’s an EO to level the field and stop the monopolies from gaming their workers. When will workers say enough? When will the NLRB change their rules back from 2004 to empower Labor once again. Americans are suffering on every economic front:No food, limited healthcare, poor education and they know it!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce If Texas can legally write Laws that prevent responsible Corporations who ban dealings with gun manufacturers from dealing with them, why can’t the Federal Government do the same in a positive way? All corporations working with the Federal Government must give their employees the right to Unionize? , min wage of $15 hour, practice the ESG’s. It’s a thought? What rights would you like stressed that supports “We the People “?
