AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Australian’s facing a National Security threat by waning ability to produce its own food. The shortages are directly related to the War in Ukraine and drought and flooding. One Planet and we’re all affected by Climate Disasters. The UN worries about our Oceans and we’re responsible for voting in policies that have led to our problems! Be proactive now to secure our future!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The effects of the Climate Crisis now on Agriculture. As the planetary weather changes, we’re losing our ability to grow coffee, chiles, mustard, wine, grains, wheat, corn, and chocolate . The Western World will adapt to a bland diet & we’ll learn to engineer our food. However, the growers of crops will be destitute , suffering from erratic drought s and weather extremes. The farmers globally, especially in poorer Nations like Brazil and West Africa , they’ll go hungry. Western Nations may have insurance protection & the prices for food will continue to increase. There are remedies: solar panels over crops to shield them from the Sun. We can’t save Apples from an early frost. We can stop the War in Ukraine, this is unnecessarily increasing our Global dependence on dirty fossil fuels and creating a devastating heat feedback loop. Are we capable of saving ourselves? Can man stop his ambitions for conquest? If not, give Ukrainians the overwhelming firepower they need and end Putin’s War quickly. The World can not afford a War that exacerbates climate change!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There is little doubt Climate Change is driven by an industrialized Society. It’s not clear what the impact of climate extremes; drought, floods, cyclones, has on people, poor and middle classes, agriculture, healthcare, productivity and infrastructure. There is a cost associated with Climate Extremes in human life and property!

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 Re wilding of the Galapagos has started . They’re getting rid of invasive species and reintroducing native species to encourage a Savannah ecosystem. Restoring the Galapagos has the added benefits of more tourism and a healthy ocean. Other Native populations throughout Latin And South America , Australia are reclaiming their land. Reintroducing predators that encourage small mammal development and contain forest fires. Man and nature living in harmony. Moving forward together with what works. Giving Indigenous people renewed purpose in preserving all life!

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 Last week citizens demonstrated for health benefits and services. At the end of June, the Rail Workers will strike for higher pay & benefits. Like the Court defense barristers intending to strike, assistant make 31,000 pounds. Not enough to live on with rising inflation. Teachers may strike next. Inflation is Global and not sustainable, using high interest rates to curb it can’t be our only tool. The poor and middle Class need equal treatment to Corporations. The poor and middle Class didn’t cause inflation and haven’t benefited over the last decade.
