Want To Win The War On Poverty? Rebuild The Labor Movement

Want To Win The War On Poverty?  Rebuild The Labor Movement | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
When conservative Ohio Governor and former Lehman Brothers executive John Kasich feels compelled to remind his fellow conservatives that upon entering Heaven, “Saint Peter is probably not going to ask you much about what you did about keeping government small. But he is going to ask you what you did for the poor,” you know poverty has reached center stage.

From the homilies of Pope Francis, to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's (pictured) inauguration speech, poverty and its close cousin inequality are playing starring roles in the current political discourse. The President’s 2015 budget proposal, released earlier this month, calls for a significant increase in federal spending on anti-poverty programs, and while these proposals are likely DOA in the Republican-controlled House, Democrats across the land have promised to campaign on the issue leading up to the 2014 midterm races. This year, then, appears little different from much of 2013: the spotlight on poverty shows no sign of dimming.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Not necessarily all feminist; but unions have their place in feminism and other battles of equality -- and unions are the way to cease this war on the masses.

And include sex workers in the labor movement; perhaps not unions per se, but in valuing workers & workers rights ~ and sex work as work.

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it.
