10 of the Best iPhone Apps for Translating Languages | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Language is a wonderful thing. It is the common thread that binds entire societies, allowing ease of communication and understanding. Finding yourself in a situation where you are unable to adequately communicate, on the other hand, is extremely frustrating. Whether you are travelling abroad or seeking to learn a new language, the more tools you have at your disposal the better.

Martin Luther King: The Struggle for a Living Wage and the End to War | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

Martin Luther King: The Struggle for a Living Wage and the End to War | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization | digital divide information | Scoop.it
April 4, 2017 marked the 49th anniversary since the martyrdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the 20th century’s most outstanding proponent of Civil Rights and Peace to emerge in the United States.

This year the cause of low-wage workers took center stage as fast food, senior homes and child care employees demonstrated across the country demanding a $15 an hour minimum wage.

In Detroit, hundreds of these workers marched into the Michigan State Office Bldg. in Cadillac Place calling for Republican Governor Rick Snyder to support a hike in the minimum wage to $15. After being confronted by the State police the crowd of most youthful workers moved outside for a rally.

These actions are largely supported by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), one of the fastest growing labor organizations in the country. Over the last several years, SEIU has taken up the demand by these workers for a living wage.

Although the last two monthly reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics claim that in excess of 200,000 jobs have
been created, what is not being said is in what sectors and how much are these workers being paid. Poverty is increasing overall in the U.S. A majority of people feel as if they are sinking more into economic uncertainty. Moreover, the Labor Participation Rate is the still hovering around 62 percent of the overall workforce.
