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.

The leader of the Greek Communist Party (KKE) makes some observations about the election

This is the way it is and this is the way it is going down:

"Mr. Koutsoumpas (head of the KKE [alm]) estimated that the electoral result illustrates the people’s major resentment and anger towards New Democracy and PASOK, as well as “the false hope” that the new SYRIZA-led government can follow a pro-people policy. He further estimated that the government will reduce its demands and compromise, with the working classes paying the cost."

I would suggest that everyone print this statement off and post it on their refrigerator and on union bulletin boards and publish it in union newsletters... let's see if he ends up being correct in assessing what has taken place.

Agree or disagree or have no opinion at all, honesty requires his viewpoint to be shared so workers in our own country can have this information available to help formulate their own opinions.


Keep in mind, the KKE won 15 seats in parliament but hundreds of other elected positions across the country, too.
