What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Michigan Legislators know no shame...

Michigan legislators are now considering making all public places and work areas "smoke-free" but their proposed legislation will allow smoking to continue in casinos.

There is no opposition to this from the Michigan AFL-CIO or Change to Win... so much for defending the interests of the entire working class.

And, oh yes, the Internet Technicians employed by the Michigan Legislators, have been directed to "filter out" any e-mails to legislators coming from me or anyone from the Midwest Casino Workers Organizing Council...

Obama and the Democratic Party can go to hell.
