Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Out the revolving door door with job accomplished in "corporate service" dressed as a public servant job title. We need to dust off the conflict if interest and bribery laws.....We need to lock corrupted officials up and drop charters for companies that use these technics to corrupt and should have started at least 30 years ago.

March 2013 unemployment decreased slightly and fewer new jobs created than forecast Is the worse still to come?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I agree with this sign. Employed people make things, buy things, can afford to learn things and are empowered enough to change things peacefully if they can just find the will to make it happen. Desperate people are just that ...desperate....so don't be surprised if they burn down your house and steal your food because even the weakest can become strong with anger and hate

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

The food workers have long resisted fighting for better wages. There are so many that feel too worried about finding any other work if they stand up for better wages and lose what is too often a part time, no benefits job. Many also see fast food as a pit stop job of youth and are not motivated to fight for fair wages. The sad part of that is that for too many it is a pit stop they will move from pit stop to pit stop through and never get fair wages.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

When we watch what is going on more then the party news we see a fuller view of who we need to change regardless of party. Sadly, both parties often seem corrupted by the money matters in efforts to stay in power. The public needs to step up the pressure to do right on both the officials so we have their backs and on corporations to shine a light on the fact we will no longer support industries that do not support the public interest. When we follow the money trail we usualy find why they support anti-public interest agenda.

And thanks to modern technology, employers are a lot more likely to be aware of these problems. Obviously a prison record has always made it hard to find a job. A poor credit report can blackball you these days.

...For Keesha Goode, $34.97 in missing merchandise was enough to destroy her future in retailing....She received a letter from Dollar General alerting her that she had been turned down for a job partly because of her listing in Esteem, and a copy of the report showed that she had a “verified admission” for “theft of merchandise.” She wrote LexisNexis, “I was accused of not reporting on a former employee who was stealing merchandise, but I did not steal anything myself.”
