Pope Francis: Labor unions are essential to society

Wow. “There is no good society without a good union, and there is no good union that isn’t reborn every day in the peripheries, that doesn’t transform the rejected stones of the economy into corner stones.”

1990 Mitch McConnell Senate Campaign Ad Running On Healthcare After His Polio Scare

Mitch McConnell had polio as a child and his family was too poor to get them the care he needed. The March of Dimes got him the treatment he needed as a child and changed his life forever. Now Mitch McConnell won’t even give the March of Dimes a meeting.

In this 1990 ad, Mitch McConnell used his childhood polio as part of the pitch for his election to the Senate. Now he’s pushing a bill that will rip health insurance from 251,800 Kentuckians.

This is AMAZING!!! There haven’t been workplace rules regulating hours in 100 years and now Oregon has passed a state-wide bill making sure that people get 2 weeks advance notice of their schedules and get paid when their bosses make last minute changes!

In a dark time when convincing the Federal Government to not kill us seems like a Herculean effort, I take inspiration from the Fair Workweek Initiative that we can STILL make groundbreaking progress at the local level if we keep fighting!
