Only 12 States have implemented the $15 min wage. It never passed Congress. Guess, a living wage is inflationary, while making $31 million is good for Business? It’s time the USA got its priorities right. There is no commerce without Labor. Wages that don’t keep pace with Inflation are not enough. Unite and demand more … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Fight for $15. It’s an ongoing fight for a $15 hourly wage minimum.
http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2022/oct/05/techscape-molly-russell-inquest What content is safe for a child to view online? Who gets to decide what is OK and what is dangerous? And how much of a role should a government, a company or a parent play in that decision? These questions were brought into focus by the inquest into the death of 14-year-old Molly … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Is an American company capable of making decisions about our children’s online safety? The British coroner and the new regulatory arm of the British Government, have found against Instagram, in the suicide of 14 yr old Molly Russell. The Coroner decided that Meta was responsible for showing harmful content to a young teenager, 6 months prior to her suicide. In America, there is no Law regulating content appropriate for teenage viewing. In Australia, they’ve determined that content provided on online platforms must be regulated as well. Not only is content harmful to kids, it’s been separately found that data about our kids is shared with third parties and violates their privacy. In America, changing Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act, would make the internet safer for our kids and strengthen our Democracy. Regulation can act as a megaphone for truth and science and not a megaphone for disinformation, misinformation and violence. Think? Do you want a Corporation deciding what you see? Shouldn’t Corporations be accountable for their content? Wouldn’t you want control over who sees your data? Wouldn’t you want the ability to opt out of forced agreements? If you answered , yes, then the Social Media Platforms must be researched and their Algorithms made transparent., too!

Neither candidate responded to interview requests. In the Ohio governor’s race, Democratic challenger Nan Whaley has … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Hunger and food insecurity in America is on the rise with homelessness and yet, only the Democratic candidates in Ohio are addressing this issue. Since the Pandemic, food insecurity has risen. I personally have friends who work to service the food insecure at food pantries. When asked, many using the Pantries say, they won’t vote? I say, why not vote for a Democrat who you know stands with you on Societal issues. This year, and every year, with Trumps GOP in power, minority representation in Congress , is being eliminated. Will those needing assistance, continue to vote against yourself interests, or will you vote Democrat and preserve and increase your rights to food, healthcare, WI-FI, and schools, for you and your children? CHOOSE Democrats , not TrumpsGop.
http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2022/sep/29/amazon-us-workers-battle-unionize-second-warehouse Heather Goodall, a 50-year-old Amazon worker, began pushing for a union at her Amazon warehouse just outside Albany, New York, largely because she was alarmed about safety problems – items often fell off the warehouse’s 27ft-high racks, she said. “We’ve had packers who had items fall on them. Several complained about concussions,” Goodall said. … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Amazon should not be able to terminate or mistreat employees for Unionizing. If Corporations were humane, gave a living wage, increased cost of living pay, gave healthcare and paid sick day and provided a safe work place, we wouldn’t need to Unionize every industry in our Country. However, American Corporations only think of their profit margins and people, employees, are dispensable. Not any more. We the People, don’t have to be treated poorly or intimidated. Document abusive behavior toward you. Take photos of your work place, keep records and when you can vote Union, do it. A stronger NLRB would encourage sectoral Unions, one shop or warehouse unionizes, they’re allUnionized. No need for separate voting. Take away monopolies power and vote Union to increase your wage, benefits and safety.

This year’s midterm is very important. Who is elected, determines, if the lies of Donald Trump are perpetuated and repressive State Laws prevail. There’s lots of money at stake. Millions are being made on Social Media Platforms perpetuating lies. Millions are made in State government’s, by concentrating power in the hands of a few, who don’t want to change their way of life. Why else would Governors, like Ron deSantis surround himself with 40 Billionaires, dedicated to curtailing the Rights of We, the People. Social Media Platforms reward lies and misinformation, read reliable newspapers, look around you, see for yourself, can your life and the lives of your children be better?
