Wall Street gets what it wants when it wants it from these politicians... including the ones participating in your conference but working people are supposed to endure the poverty being imposed on them through unemployment and poverty wages.
How much longer do you think the U.S. working class which is being pushed further and further into poverty by wars, monopoly price-fixing and Wall Street seeking super-profits through poverty wages is going to fall for the Democrats' agenda of "good starts?"
To get your conference on the road to a really "good start" I would suggest that you distribute this article by former Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party Governor Elmer Benson. It might help place things in a better historical perspective:
Dear Alan Maki,Thank you for your message and for your recommendation that we consult your blog.Be assured that we are students of history, well-acquainted with the 1945 full employment bill that passed the Senate and was later defeated in the House. We have also pondered the reasons for its defeat. We believe that the current H.R. 1000, The Humphrey Hawkins Full Employment and Training Act that we have had a hand in drafting is a good start and that it is closer to jobs for all than the Full Employment and Balanced Growth Act of 1978 (Humphrey Hawkins Act).We are also students of the Great Depression, the job creation programs of the New Deal, their strengths and weaknesses and of FDR's Economic Bill of Rights that began with "the right to a useful and remunerative job" which he considered "the most fundamental [right], and one on which the fulfillment of the others in large degree depends" (1945, Annual Message to Congress).
We invite you to visit our website, njfac.orgSincerely,Trudy GoldbergSincerely,Trudy Goldberg

I regret I am unable to attend your "Jobs For All" conference.
However, I would encourage you to bring forward the idea first developed around the original "Full Employment Act of 1945" that it should be made legislatively mandatory for the president and Congress to attain and maintain full employment--- full employment being anyone who wants a jobs gets a job at real living wages; wages in line with actual cost-of-living factors not these phony figures of $9.50 or $10.10 politicians pull from their hats for political expediency and to satisfy the needs of employers looking to keep their profit margins high through cheap labor.I would encourage you to check out my blog which has the complete transcript of the Full Employment Act of 1945 Congressional Hearing.
I think it is imperative we study the past in order to gain an understanding of where we want to go with a movement for full employment.Here is my blog:
I am also including two other links which may be of interest to you:
http://www.newprogs.org/I would be interested in receiving any materials coming out of your July 9 & 10 conference.
I do find it interesting that so many organizations will allow the very politicians who campaign on a platform of "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs" are let off the hook simply because they mouth the "correct" progressive policy directives but then when provided the opportunity once elected they do absolutely nothing to implement full employment in practice.
Specifically, I am interested in knowing if your organization is going to be bringing forward legislation similar to the Full Employment Act of 1945 fully updated to take on the new problems workers and working class families are experiencing.
I also hope your conference will be addressing the "Cost-of-Living Crisis" every single working class family in this country is experiencing.Alan L. Maki
