AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Hispanic/Latina markets hit hard by this enforced Lockdown. They make up 14.7% of the workforce and 50% of housekeepers, & maids! Now they have no work. 20 million Americans have no work & can’t get work & Congress is debating how to pay only those who work? How are people going to live without a Basic Living Wage at this time? We’ve taken away their Healthcare & education & next is food? Stop the debate and Give income to the Lower & Middle Classes. Americans need a monetary safety net!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There is no trickle down & continuing to provide the same inadequate support to the Lower & Middle Classes is shameful. Contractors, long time unemployed, & others are not getting enough money to survive. Relieve their anxiety & give them a basic Living Wage. $10,000 to 164 million only costs &1.6 Billion and May last for a quarter, Or 6 months & stimulate the economy too! I think this is a good idea, whose time has come. Why make life complicated. If we’ve got 600 new Billionaires, why can’t we offer a small lifeline to those in need?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Looking At inequality in America through charts that clearly show most Americans get less of the Economic pie , less income , less benefits than comparable Nations. Our lifespan is less, our happiness quotient is lower and our healthcare costs more! The American worker has been treated poorly since Unions were in power in the 50’s. Union benefits made a huge increase in our Standard of living !

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce In 2008 Americans bailed out Banks that defrauded us. Now the Fed wants to bail out Corporations with excessive debt. NO! Not when Main Street Starves & has no Healthcare. The weak Corporations made money on their debt. The American people have given our lives to preserve Corporations. Pay us first and provide a social safety net. We don’t have to worry about Microsoft & Apple, the 2 Nd & e rd tier Corporations may be in trouble. So what? Who is shedding a tear for small business? No Bailout. Let them bail in! We’ll create new industries.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyceCOVID-19 cases soar in South & West, wearing a mask & social distancing is not an option , if you or your family want to be virus free. Sadly, 38,000 new cases reported & testing is too low to detect positives. 5%-8% of the population is not sufficient to curtail hospitalization or death. Under this dire back drop Trump & TrumpsGOP have filed to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Program? When millions are unemployed, this is. no time to obliterate the only social safety net available to the unemployed. Healthcare expansion should be available to everyone.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce 1/2 hr of Periscope chat concluded. We discussed So Korea’s 2 Nd wave of Covid and how So Korea & Germany support People Thru WiFi, affordable Healthcare, monetary support for everyone. People & Profits. In my view: we need a Social Safety net here. Stimulus for the Middle Class & Lower Classes would benefit the entire economy and give Peopke a safety net. I’m for Social Justice & Equal Opportunity! Have a blessed day. See you Tuesday at 11 am Thank you and Subscribe to my YouTube channel “TheVoiceOfJoyce.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As Corporations move to increase employee benefits, pay & safety, this Administration is still attempting to repeal the ACA. They’re out of step with our National Needs for more & better Healthcare, not less. What are they thinking? Covid has permaneochanged our Culture and requirements for Counseling, preventive medicine and greater access to food. We the People are aware we need more services.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce 1.4 million jobs have been lost in Healthcare not related to the virus. We can bring back those jobs with extensive testing of the population. Once testing occurs, people will feel safe in a Hospital or rehab Center. Testing is priority #1
