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.

Surprise, surprise... the United States is no longer a democracy

Don't forget to read the full report at the end of the article:

As if most of us have not known this... these people play us for fools when in fact they know full well all of this is maintained through the use of repression. After all, isn't this why "At-Will Employment," the "Communist Control Act of 1954," "Taft-Hartley," "Citizens United" and a "Minimum Wage" that enforces very profitable poverty wages along with a Military-Industrial Complex and never-ending imperialist wars exist in order to control the only class, the working class, capable of changing any of this by taking political and economic power away from Wall Street and putting us on the road to socialism?



The capitalist system which has morphed into monopoly control and domination during this epoch of imperialism is rigged against workers who produce all wealth and enables the wealthiest to exercise complete control over politics and the economy.



We can't win the struggle to defend, advance and expand democracy through voting for the Democrats or Republicans... we need massive struggles in our working class communities, in our places of employment, in the streets combined with building a new working class based progressive people's party for peace, social and economic justice in line with making the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights a living reality for everyone everywhere.
