AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Boycott Wendy’s till they comply with the Fair Food Program ensuring pay and benefits to farm workers in their supply chains. Slavery was banned after the Civil War, yet it continues in our food supply chains and Federal Prisons. No one can compete with Labor that costs nothing. This treatment of workers is inhumane and the major Shareholder and all involved in Wendy’s supply chain should be sued for back wages. Where is an enterprising Attorney, when needed?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Are these members of the house living in Reality. Give small business tax credits to set up expensive 401k’s for employee & employer savings accounts for retirement. Where will the extra money to save be found? Are they increasing the Minimum Wage to $15/hr Nationally? Are they changing the NLRB making Unionization easier for Labor? Are they enforcing anti trust, encouraging entrepreneurs to become more competitive , giving entrepreneurs a greater piece of the Corporate pie? Give more money to the Lower and Middle Classy and they’ll happily save! I know, at Ford, Pfizer, Banker Trust , I set 6% of my salary aside for saving and it was matched by the Corporation. As a small but owner, I was told not to take on the Responsibility of a pension fund & paid my Labor high salaries, gave them healthcare and paid leave instead. One day I hoped to share my business with them, but the Recession of 2008 blocked those plans. Many employees of entrepreneurs have not recovered financially. For The Families Act is still required and supported by 70% of the People.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Substandard wages for Retail and fast food workers are unacceptable. While major Corporations report record profits and higher costs to consumers, wages lag. Unionize and get a living wage, paid leave and a say in Corporate affairs.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce More nurses striking with better pay, benefits, affordable healthcare, and retention of staff. They’re overwhelmed by the Covid crisis. Their work is arduous, constant pressure and accountability, pay them adequately for a job well done! It’s deserving. Then rework the role of insurance on hospital management and regulate, Insurance has too much power and destroys hospital efficiencies. Try the Maryland model. It works for John’s Hopkins.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Unionize all airport workers $2-8/hr is not a living wage. Get a Union and get healthcare, vacation pay, benefits and a pension. The Dallas workers , can consult the folks in Amazon Staten Island for advice. Strike , if necessary. Be determined. Unionization is the way out of poverty and monetary insecurity. Do it for yourselves and families.

TheVoiceOfJoyce Instead of talking about our rise in violence & meanness, we, everyone of us, can aim for one decent act per day. I still believe our Economic stagnation is causal to meanness & violence. That coupled with cancel culture & identity politics, encourages mistrust, where everyone is the enemy. A healthy productive society doesn’t have tone for meanness! We cure our sick. We pay decent wages and staff jobs appropriately, not stingily! Treat peopke with respect and dignity and we’ll see a less violent & mean person! We’re all waiting for the Hobs Act, the child care relief and educational program! Pass those bills before vacation and people will feel valued. Without Fundamental Change , standards of care, labor rights there is no progress!

Description of EPI #84 Compassion & Science? TrumpsGOP are ready to protect their domain, even if it kills us and it is. They’re controlling how we vote and how we think. In many states they write history as they see it and don’t teach evolution. No wonder there’s fear of Vaccination Science and collaborative science … More TheVoiceOfJoyce YouTube Tuesday, EPI #84 Science https://youtu.be/EdgEnB9ss30

TheVoiceOfJoyce It’s great the Fed can recover Ransom paid in Bitcoin from Russian hackers , called the DarkSide. However, if dedicated IT were monitoring critical infrastructure, we wouldn’t be vulnerable. If the architects of the Internet had placed early warning signs onNetworks, ransom would be deterred. We need a “belt & suspenders “ approach to protecting critical infrastructure!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Teens temporarily filling low paying jobs & that’s beneficial to them. America still has a problem creating work at decent pay for the 20+ age group. When will wages increase so they can form and support families?Sooner, rather than later ,wages must rise and new jobs created to absorb millions. Starvation is not a solution. Neither is a permanent non working class!

TheVoiceOfJoyce What do the jobs #’s really mean? Who is getting work and who isn’t. It’s clear young people in their 20’s & 30’s are not entering the job market. Information Technology is lagging and millions are still out of work. We need the Infrastructure and the American Families Act now to stimulate our economy and improve productivity and our way of life!
