  •  Work For Higher Pay in May (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    JayRaye, RiveroftheWest

    Unions, strikes, protests: Where have they all gone? After a century we still don't have an effective way to ensure a living wage. We have to do better.

    That's why I've declared May First "New Jobs Day", a day where you can take action to increase the number of jobs and what they pay. I'm asking people to take a pledge on May Day that they will go looking for a higher paying job in the month of May.

    Spread the word. If all workers simultaneously sought higher wages then wages would go up. And there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. No amount of police brutality or newspaper rabble rousing can stop workers from looking for better jobs.

    Make the law of supply and demand work for you.
