Reducing working hours is a socio-economic investment that often brings better long-term health and more time sovereignty. A three-day or four-day workweek is the only way to ensure meaningful work to the rising generation. State or public employment is necessary to supplement private employment. Part-time workers should work more while 38-hour workers should work less.
The chaos president and the hate preacher Pence must be upended in a regime change.
“Biden-danger” is the whole Trump campaign. Sleepy Joe will “destroy American jobs,” “destroy American democracy,” and “destroy American suburbs,” Allegedly Biden didn’t say a word of protest against the violence in US cities, Pence exploded. Goebbels with his “total victory” addresses was like Pence and Trump in many ways. “International Jewry was exterminating Germany” and all power had to be given to the Fuhrer.
This morning Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said the Democrats with their slow reopening caused the severe recession. No word about the $8 trillion tax heists that went to corporations and households with over one million dollars. No word about the bungled COVID-19 response costing thousands of American lives. No word about 40% of small businesses that probably won’t return. No word about the 40 million on unemployment and the 20 million who lost their health insurance with their jobs. No word about market failure and state failure. No word about Trump cutting everything except the military.
State investment and state job creation are vital in the real world. State investment can stimulate private investment.
Rethinking should be the order of the day. Reducing working hours is a socio-economic investment bringing better long-term health and more time sovereignty. 38-hour workers should work four days and be paid for 38 hours; part-time workers should be able to increase their hours.
American taxpayers paid $107 billion more for the police than for public housing. Time for new priorities and new economic policies that de-carbonize the economy, de-privilege the car and serve the interest of the many and not the few! System change, not climate change! Job guarantees for the young! Redistribution from the top to the bottom and economic survivalism could replace corporate welfare, the tax avoidance industry, tax havens, micro-second betting, corporate stock buybacks, and insider trading. Market distortions must not be promoted.
