AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Germany holds owner of meat packing plant responsible for 1500 Covid 19 cases. Schools have been closed in the province, the plant is closed and extensive tracing of contacts is ongoing as Germany seeks to avoid more regional shutdowns. Non compliance with Masks & social distancing hurts everyone. Lives and the economy suffer when scientific advice is not followed!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce What activities the epidemiologist consider safe. Do our workplaces conform with their concerns? If not, Corporations must prepare their workplaces to accommodate the needs of people to remain healthy. The choice rests with the Corporate world, not the workers. #People & Profits

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce America is the only Country to have this level on unemployment & this level of deaths relative to other Western Nations. This is gross failure on the Federal Level to prepare for the consequences of this Pandemic. Americans now require significant Helicopter Money to help them through this period. $10,000 costs $1.5 Trillion & is less than a 1/3 rd of the payout to Corporations. Give 164 million Americans 18 & older, sick or not, working or not, earning $75,000 or less direct $’s. Unemployment IT is non existent, stimulate the economy while businesses develop plans to reopen & the Federal Government starts the work required to prevent a 2 Nd wave & more deaths.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce When you analyze the statistics counting the unemployed, the % is upward of 25% ? If true , are approximately 60 million out of work, at a Time when the GOP are having their Hoover Moment. Factories can spend money to make their workplaces safe. How will all the unemployed survive without assistance. This is a time for stimulus not ideology. It’s interesting, GOP Ideology is invoked only when “we the People “ need assistance.? Hypocrisy!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce America under Trump will never rise above the effects of Covid 19. He is opening states blindly, with little testing & tracing of contagion. He prefers Liabity waivers, rather than safeguard the lives of employees or employers or consumers. If workers are so important to the economy, make them citizens, if they’re not already, and recognize their heroism! Further, instead of diving our States, insist that States of plenty share their produce and products with the rest of us. Why should anyone be hungry in America? There’s a lot to do to bring back America’s can do spirit. First you have to care about Americans. All 330 million people . Trump & TrimpsGop only care about their interests and the massive cover up they’ve perpetrated because of their purposeful ineptness and callous disregard for American lives. Unless you’re a fetus, the rest of us are expendable.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Shame on Trump & TrumpsGOP Isn’t enough that you did nothing to protect lives & our Economy. Now you want to shield big businesses from Liability Insurance. They should be responsible for the health & well being of their employees. Liability will regulate how Labor is treated. It’s enough catering to one class over another. Small businesses always had compensation & Liability Insurance, why shouldn’t Big Businesses? Equality Neutral. The safety of workers, first.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Going back to work in some “Red” states offers Workers no choice. If they don’t return to work , they lose their benefits . Many worry they’ll get sick & infect loved ones. It doesn’t have to be an either or situation. We can be doing massive State programs to benefit all people. Making sure their employees are tested , along with their customers. Insuring masks, gloves and social distancing are practiced by all. Why would you vote for a Government that puts your life & the life of loved ones in danger? There are other ways to reopen safely. This Federal Government, under Trump, failed everyone.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Why is America joining Russia and ignoring a UN plea for a Universal ceasefire at this time? No country has a greater priority than maintaining the health of their peopke. That means we are mandated to provide food, clean air, clean water & food to all our citizens. War creates refugees & refugees are a breeding ground for contagion. Protect all people and we’ll all live to plan a better life!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Why aren’t the Europeans suffering economically like Americans? They have better healthcare, more generous unemployment benefits, less layoffs. They keep people working on staggered shifts & flexible schedules. They’ll take an economic hot, but their economies will survive and so will their peopke. They care about their employees. Our Oligarchsmainly care about their own self preservation. Otherwise, there would be oversight to maintain employees wages, even if they can’t be productive during a Pandemic.
