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.

Poverty

Wall Street and it's bribed politicians--- Obama, the Democrats and Republicans--- backed by its over-paid pundits, has been orchestrating a war on the poor instead of a war on poverty.

The money being wasted and squandered on Wall Street's wars abroad should be used to wage a war on poverty.

Wall Street employers make big profits paying workers poverty wages so it should come as no surprise Wall Street's bribed politicians use the levers of government like the Minimum Wage to provide employers with the "right" to pay millions of workers poverty wages.

Figure it out: Workers paid poverty wages are going to be poor.

Paying workers real living wages cuts into corporate profits.

Should we care more about people or profits?

Wages must rise because the cost-of-living has spiraled upwards out of control.

When workers can't purchase with their wages the goods and services required for decent livelihoods they are poor.
