More on California's Proposition 32:

A fair day's wage

  • With black lung making a comeback, the Mine Safety and Health Administration is targeting coal dust in inspections. Inspections are good, but tougher limits on coal dust are needed. There's no such thing as a fair day's wage for a fair day's work if workers are being exposed to needless hazards.
  • Six out of 10 parents say their kid got sick and couldn't go to their usual child care or school in the past year, half of parents with kids in child care said it's difficult to find alternative care, and a third said they might lose pay or even their jobs if they take time off to take care of a sick kid. Yet another reason workers need, and deserve, paid sick days.
  • American Airlines pilots picketed at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport their quest for a fair contract.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I think one way to frame it would be to ask (0+ / 0-)

    why, since Citizens United became law, would these supposed "freedom loving Americans" ask for limits of any kind on any organization, for political purposes?  Answer: to tilt the playing field toward themselves, ie, the very corporations that gave us Citizens United.

    IOW, Freedom's just another word for "Let us do your thinking for you."
