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.

Just what is Richard Trumka's idea of a "new economy?"

Richard Trumka held another one of his press conferences claiming he was expressing the anger of the American people over the direction of the economy but he failed to articulate that this is Wall Street's capitalist economy and imperialist system.

Trumka also failed to articulate an alternative economy that would best serve the interests of the working class--- which would be socialism.

Not only did Trumka fail to articulate the need for socialism, he failed to spell out and articulate the kind of real reforms required that would improve the lives of working class families because Trumka knows full well that this would require the working class to become engaged in the class struggle.

Is there really anyone who believes that what is good for Wall Street will be good for the working class when Wall Street's greatest profits are derived from what makes working class families suffer?
