Politics, Poverty, Full Employment and the Living Wage
Poverty is Over—If We Want it. [Adam Lassila | The Occupied Wall Street Journal] - It’s unconscionable that more than 30 million full-time workers don’t earn enough to provide for their families. It’s also unacceptable that 22 million willing laborers don’t have access to full-time work. Every human being deserves a job that can provide for his or her family’s well-being. Full employment is possible, but the U.S. government has rejected it as a policy goal because it is not in the best interest of the elites who control Washington.
