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.

Labor Day and the workers employed in the Indian Gaming Industry

On this Labor Day, around two-million workers employed in the heinous and hideous Indian Gaming Industry with over 350 operations spread out across the country--- an industry which is nothing but a front for wealthy white mobsters who own all the slot machines and the entire fabulously profitable industry except for the racist poverty causing debt with which Native American Indian tribes are saddled with--- are forced to work in loud, noisy, smoke-filled casinos at poverty wages without any rights under state or federal labor laws because corrupt state, federal and tribal politicians (mostly Democrats) working in cahoots with organized crime in return for massive campaign contributions have created this deplorable situation through a maze of "Compacts" intended to provide cheap labor as the source of massive profits.
