People are used to buying $5 sweatshirts from Forever21, with a stolen design slapped on a piece of fabric made by exploited workers in slave labor conditions.
You understand its $58 dollars because thats how much a sweatshirt costs without slave labor, right? lol These sweatshirts were made in the states, by Union labor where people make enough money to feed their kids and pay rent. You make enough gritting though, $58 is nothing.
A GOP that never delivers shit for its voters but passes a bill to all corporations to flood the labor market with H1B visas while Americans are losing everything bc they cant get work is why people will sit out the GA runoff and why the GOP deserves what it gets.
Labor will drift under any leader unless it resolves these differences. It would like to pretend it has Morrison's number, but that delusion will only keep it out of power longer.
Mentally ill, autistic, without family or friends, surviving by manual labor, but longing to use his mind and help others, Steve finds in books and social activism a measure of meaning and self-acceptance. Just Being Alive, an 85K word memoir.
Hey remember when US secretly bombed Laos and Cambodia during the Vietnam Imperial Invasion, just in case they got any ideas to run their own country and control their own labor?

Couple things: 1. Unions are often unproductive, tbd on whether union labor is more efficient (in philly, seems the opposite is true). 2. This is America, not Denmark. Americans as a whole think with their wallets before they think about other things. $58 for this is ridiculous.
This is why they wanted to get rid of Trump so they can export jobs out of America for cheap labor.

Its an unpopular view but Labor laid the seed bed for what LNP has been doing since 96, (minus the RGR interregnum). Hawke, Keating and the crew. The chasm between Whitlam and Hawke eras is wide. I lived through both The oil crisis was both symptom and cause; we werent alone.
A potential indoor shutdown, a lack of stimulus aid, and other hospitality industry restrictions couldnt come at a worse time.
So,Putting Citizen's of other Countries before US Citizen's. Bending US over and Screwing US on the other end. Back and forth it goes. Tax cuts for the Wealthy Establishment. Then cheap Labor destroying wages and Benefits. Duopoly Establishment Oligarch Crooks.
They keep pushing this Walmart shirts are from sweatshop labor narrative without considering poor/fixed income family dont have the privilege to care about where a shirt comes from.
Disgusting. scientology ignores labor laws claiming all employees are volunteers. Pay them way less than min. wage. They pay no taxes. Then get taxpayer funded PPP money to preserve jobs. Any lie is OK if it is for the benefit of Scientology. Wake up.
Its important to also share posts like this that arent so feel good because people need to know the things Shirley has to face in order to do this work. Helping those who are in need & vulnerable can come at a painful cost sometimes. Its more than just her labor, its a risk.

And here we are ~160 years later; theres STILL opposition to removing slave labor from this perverted form of capitalism. Only now, instead of the nasty racist rhetoric of the 19th century, its called rehabilitative job training Please. It is white supremacist profiteering.

The 13th Amendment does not abolish slavery. It extends slavery to all being applicable. It's your jail system. It doesn't state jail though, it applies labor to those that commit crime. You are a slave, all of you. You commit against the constitution. Double and new taxes. Coin.
The CBP barred import of all cotton products produced by the Xinjiang Production & Construction Corps (XPCC). The Chairs continue to call for passage of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act to address all imports made with forced labor in Xinjiang.
Another solution may be to reexamine if college is still the best path to a good lifestyle. The data would suggest this but in some skilled labor areas - software development in particular - college is no longer as useful as a great portfolio of technical work.
Come on Liberals... get your act together! A lot of people don't want Labor re-elected 2022.
Want to know where your voters are Labor ? How about standing up for $3/hr farm workers or your run over and dying $10 / hr Uber eats workers. Who has lost connection with who here?
Haha if you want a "free" shirt just do unpaid labor for my campaign imagine simping for this.
The biggest factors in Labor's loss last election were the Murdoch media and Clive Palmer's $80mil anti-Labor ad spend. Of course the media ignores this in every article about last election because they don't want media reform.

The comments by SwannyQLD about Labor needing to focus on kitchen table issues are correct! Our ClimateCrisis is the biggest kitchen table issue for Australians. In terms of suffering, jobs and the economy. Why cant AustralianLabor not stand by science & economists!?

"...commit all profits from my forthcoming book to the charity you suggest because it's not like I had rent to pay or anything like that. Sure, I'll just give away a year or two's labor for free because I said something stupid on Twitter. Sounds like justice to me!" Christ.
Agreed. And I am thoroughly over the vacuous 'got to be electable' trope. The notion that Labor are playing 4d chess with their election strategy is just nonsense. Theyre pandering to the same big money interests as the LNP. Its all about the $$. Sitting on their sinecures.
Doesnt seem to matter to LNP or Labor.
What are the lessons for Federal Labor in Bidens victory? My big take away: Joe Biden likes people and the people like Joe Biden. My piece in dailytelegraph Also apologies to murphymike and HelloFrankLavin I told you I was going to borrow the priests v maths bit!

It is such a shame how AustralianLabor are becoming. I agree, Labor and LNP will be at the bottom of my voting paper next election.
The thing that kills me is defund has one meaning lower funding. Its remarkably clear. Matt says the signs below are better, but I could feign ignorance abt them too. Jobs for all?! Does that jobs for kids? What if I want the job of president? Does this mean forced labor?!
