Poverty is not an accident...















But...

What actions does it take to eliminate poverty?

Workers without jobs are going to be poor.

Workers paid poverty wages are going to be poor.

The primary solutions to ending poverty is:

Full employment with real living wage jobs.

We need a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would mandate the president and Congress to work together to attain and maintain full employment.

Enforce the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
