It’s unthinkable for businesses to grow and thrive without capital finance but this has too often been the reality for charities and social enterprises.” Sunday 13 February 2011 11:47 pm whatsappcenter_img Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ PM defends Big Society Tags: NULLlast_img read more

WWP presidential campaign says: Smash HB2 and anti-LGBTQ, anti-worker attacks!

first_imgThe following is a March 25 solidarity statement from the 2016 presidential campaign of Workers World Party to the people fighting House Bill 2 in North Carolina.Power to the five queer and trans* youth arrested on March 24 amidst a powerful demonstration of many hundreds — largely Black and Brown, LGBTQ youth — outside the North Carolina governor’s mansion after the Legislature there rushed through House Bill 2, one of the most severe anti-LGBTQ, anti-worker laws in the country.The Moorehead-Lilly presidential/vice presidential campaign condemns in the strongest terms this heinous attack on LGBTQ people and stands in full solidarity with the powerful resistance led by Black and Brown, queer and trans* young people, many from the Black Lives Matter movement.Right-wing bigots who control the North Carolina Legislature introduced the bill, using the pretext of overturning a local ordinance. The city council in Charlotte had passed a measure that would have allowed trans* people to access the bathroom that best matches with their gender identity. But the statewide bill was a much broader assault on the LGBTQ community and workers.The new law criminalizes trans* and gender nonconforming people, and puts the safety and the lives of LGBTQ people in danger. It rolls back anti-discrimination policies on the books. It gives bosses much greater power to discriminate against or fire workers based on their race, gender, gender identity and expression, religion, or sexual orientation by depriving workers of the ability to bring suit on these grounds in state courts.The Legislature convened a special session of the General Assembly on March 23 and rammed the bill through both houses. The governor then signed this atrocious bill into law within 24 hours.In 2015, at least 20 transgender people in the U.S. were recorded as murdered, the vast majority being transwomen of color. The real number is likely much higher. LGBTQ people — particularly people of color and women — experience higher rates of poverty, homelessness, and lack of access to quality and sensitive health care, and face the risk of violence and incarceration.Workers World Party stands unequivocally on the side of LGBTQ people in the fight for self-determination, trans* and gender liberation!HB2 comes just months after the North Carolina Legislature passed HB318, an anti-immigrant bill that was a full-scale attack on immigrant workers. HB318 gave more power to cops and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, and prohibited municipalities from adopting “sanctuary” policies protecting immigrants, among other things.HB2 also comes during the rise of the presidential campaign of ultraright, racist billionaire Donald Trump. Trump’s campaign is using a vicious platform of racism and bigotry to mobilize and embolden the most reactionary forces in society, forces who would like nothing more than to turn the clock back on the advances made by the civil rights, Black liberation, working class, union, women’s and LGBTQ movements.The ruling class relies on sowing divisions to keep workers and the oppressed divided — HB2 is an attempt to scapegoat transgender people to do just that. The rulers tremble at the thought of the multinational, multigendered working class uniting — especially in this period of a deep, irresolvable crisis of the capitalist system because they know what will happen to them and the tools they use to divide us: They will be smashed into the ground and swept into the dustbin of history.We stand on the side of workers and the oppressed, and fight for a revolutionary socialist future that can abolish once and for all the rule of the capitalist class and that rids society of all forms of oppression.LGBTQ liberation now!Smash racism, sexism, LGBTQ bigotry and all forms of oppression!Fight for a revolutionary socialist future!*(Trans* is currently used with an asterisk to indicate the spectrum of all the different sexes and genders of people who do not conform to the either/or of male/female or masculine/feminine.)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Viral capitalism: Racist, sexist bosses kill jobs

first_imgAnother 1.3 million people filed for unemployment benefits during the week of Sept. 28, adding to the ranks of the 12 million workers still jobless due to the pandemic. They and their families have lost health insurance, not provided by this ruthless capitalist government. Evictions and homelessness are on the rise. Food lines are everywhere.Yet no pandemic rescue plan is in sight. Despite the suffering of millions of workers and their families, the Democrats and Republicans cannot come to an agreement. Especially hard hit are Black, Latinx, Indigenous, immigrant and low-income workers. Undocumented workers deserve assistance, but this racist government denies them any aid, even medical care or food stamps.A coalition of Philadelphia organizations at a in-person action, People’s Unemployment Line: Demand a Safe & Just Return to Work! June 2020. (Photo: Joe Piette)October 5 marked the tenth week since laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits failed to get the extra $600 weekly federal benefits that expired at the end of July. Right-wing politicians refused to agree to it. Even more workers have lost jobs since the White House halted stimulus talks on Oct. 6. That trend will continue if the pandemic spikes again and businesses close. (Economic Policy Institute, Oct. 8)What recovery?Job growth slowed in September, with many furloughs becoming permanent and the “recovery” losing steam. While some companies are hiring, others are laying off. EPI says there are 6.6 million more unemployed people than job openings and warns that without further aid to state and local economies, millions more jobs will be lost.This denial of funding comes at a time when half of those laid off during the pandemic are still jobless, while 60% of those still working who took a pay cut have not regained their former salaries. The labor market “recovery” has bypassed Black, Latinx, low-income and young workers, who were disproportionately laid off or paid reduced wages. Some 56% of laid-off low-wage workers are still unemployed. (Pew Research Center, Sept. 24)The jobless rate declined to 7% in September for white workers, but 12.1% of Black workers, 10.3% of Latinx workers and 15.9% of young workers are still unemployed. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, Oct. 2) White workers are being rehired twice as quickly as Black workers due to entrenched racism. Many laid-off Black workers have joined the ranks of the 3.8 million who permanently lost their jobs as of last month. Denying further rescue funds will severely harm Black, Latinx and Indigenous communities, who already suffer lower incomes and assets due to systemic racism. It means no more federal funds for housing, health care, protective equipment for health workers, COVID testing and treatment, or the Postal Service.Jerome Powell, chairperson of the Federal Reserve Board, reacting to President Trump’s order to stop rescue plan talks, warned that if the virus spreads, more businesses will close and the economy will tank. His concern is not about workers suffering but about companies losing profits as the economy contracts. At the core, he and the capitalist class fear growing mass anger by the multinational working class and political instability.$10.2 trillion bonanza – to the wealthyOne group has fared quite well during this pandemic — the 2,189 billionaires whose combined wealth soared 27.5% between April and July to a record $10.2 trillion. UBS bank reported Oct. 7 that the rate of growth soared during the coronavirus crisis in the technology, health and industrial sectors. (UBS.com, “Riding the Storm”) Health industry tycoons raked in the most, spurred on by various innovations and COVID-19 treatments and equipment.While much of this wealth was obtained through betting on the global stock market recovery after the virus peaked, it helped that the U.S. ruling class has one of their own in the White House, who cut their taxes and connived to undermine workers’ rights and labor unions. President Trump not only didn’t “drain the swamp” of corporate lobbyists and magnates, he “reinvented it.” (New York Times, Oct. 11)Health care workers and others rally Oct. 7 in solidarity with California nurses’ strike and to build a Workers Assembly Against Racism. New York City. Go to www.shutdownracism.orgThis obscene wealth is an insult to the millions worldwide infected by the coronavirus. Over 8 million have been sickened in the U.S., and 220,000 have died — mainly Black, Latinx and Indigenous people, plus disabled individuals and seniors. It’s a slam at “essential workers” and courageous medical workers who jeopardize their lives to save others. Over 1,700 health workers have died from COVID-19. (National Nurses United, Sept. 28)In richest country, widespread povertyThere’s a crying need for another rescue plan. Some 78 million adults are having difficulty paying for basic necessities due to long-standing inequities, “often stemming from structural racism,” in employment, housing and health care. This has intensified with the pandemic. Nearly half of Black and Latinx families are having trouble paying basic bills, compared to one-fourth of white households. (Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Oct. 7) They are twice as likely to fall behind on housing payments and lack emergency funds.The COVID crisis created a hunger crisis as parents lost incomes. Food lines extend for blocks. An estimated 54 million people, including 18 million children, many no longer receiving healthy school meals, aren’t getting enough to eat. One in eight households lacks adequate food, with Black and Latinx families twice as likely as white households to go without. (New York Times, Sept. 2)More pain is projected for the multinational working class, which has recouped only half of the 24 million jobs lost in the spring. Corporations say that due to the pandemic crisis and the lack of more federal stimulus money, they must implement massive job cuts. Omitted from the financial news is that businesses are also shrinking their workforce in reaction to the global capitalist economic crisis.Business Insider’s list of implemented or projected corporate layoffs adds up to a  stunning tens of thousands of jobs lost. Disney is cutting 28,000 jobs. United and American airlines furloughed 32,000 workers on Oct. 1 Numerous other companies are eliminating workers. (tinyurl.com/y54at7yg)Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, represents 50,000 workers, 75% of them women. She told MSNBC on Oct. 10 that furloughed workers are desperate; some are homeless. They are waiting for a government rescue plan, as the union had an agreement with the airlines that jobs and employee health insurance would be retained if a deal came through. Pandemic’s impact on women workersWomen, many Black, Latinx and immigrants, make up the majority of “essential” workers on the front lines at medical facilities, providing childcare, staffing big box stores and volunteering at food pantries.The viral disaster has exposed gender inequities and widespread racism in the system, acutely impacting women workers of color. The pandemic eliminated many of women’s jobs in health care, education and transportation. By April, 16.2% of women were out of work, compared to 13.5% of men. (NBC News, June 8)Due to “occupational segregation,” many Black and Latinx women toil in the hospitality, food service and retail industries with low pay and little to no job security. Many struggled to make ends meet even pre-pandemic. These sectors were the first hit by COVID-19. Shutdowns, layoffs, even collapses followed. By May, 20% of Latinx and 16% of Black women workers were unemployed. With many schools and daycare centers now closed, women have more parenting responsibilities. Some are reducing work hours to help their children with remote learning. Single mothers must do it all. The economic and parental burden is staggering, but no government help is on the horizon. From August through September, of the 1.1 million individuals who dropped out of the labor force, 865,000 were women, including 324,000 Latinx and 58,000 Black women. (National Women’s Law Center) Their reasons: unavailability or insecurity of jobs, the gender wage gap — especially severe for women of color — and childcare. The unemployment rate for Black and Latinx women workers is now 11% and rising.Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, co-founder of Moms Rising, stressed: “The big numbers we’re seeing in the news are not showing the actual tragedy below that: intense wage discrimination, compounded by structural racism that moms of color are experiencing right now.” (Boston Globe, Oct. 2)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Lawmakers Ask Trump Administration to Deny Biofuel Waivers

first_img Facebook Twitter Lawmakers Ask Trump Administration to Deny Biofuel Waivers Home Indiana Agriculture News Lawmakers Ask Trump Administration to Deny Biofuel Waivers SHARE A group of lawmakers is asking the outgoing Trump administration to deny biofuel wavers.A letter signed by the House Biofuels Caucus follows a report the Environmental Protection Agency was readying to approve three small refinery exemptions. The letter calls the exemptions illegal, adding they are “contrary to legislative intent and hurt rural economies.”In September, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler rejected dozens of waiver requests from refiners. But now, with 66 more exemption requests pending, and news the Trump administration is preparing to approve three waivers, the lawmakers say the reversal is “a betrayal to Rural America.”The lawmakers say it would be inappropriate to grant any waiver petitions inconsistent with the law and the Tenth Circuit Court decision, currently pending litigation and review by the Supreme Court until the review is finished.The approvals would be one of the Trump administration’s final efforts and could be announced yet this week, applying to the 2019 compliance year.

Representatives of the local authority have launched a total of 160 legal actions against the paper.In this first incident, George Baesu, former prefect and PSD parliamentary candidate, told Oancea: “You deserve to be beaten for what you have written!”In a second incident Oancea approached the president of the municipal authority, Marian Oprisan, to take his photo. The official then told journalists present at a press conference that they should “stay within a special area for journalists, like in the civilised world”. Journalists are ordered to maintain a distance of three metres to film or photograph Marian Oprisan.Finally, Oancea asked local police chief Silviu Crin Grosu, “Mr Grosu, did you know that the Ministry of Administration and Interior has banned local police officials from participating in the election campaign?” The police chief replied: “Mr Oancea, unless I am mistaken, your mother works for us at the inspector’s office, doesn’t she? “And what does that have to do with my question?” the journalist asked. “There could very well be a connection,” the police chief replied.The municipal authorities in 2002 blocked sales of the newspaper by bringing in cranes to demolish half a dozen kiosks selling the paper. The kiosks had become the sole sales outlet after the public distribution company Rodipet broke its contract with the newspaper.

A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. General Population Trails Servicemembers in Financial Well Being According to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Annual Report on financial literacy and preparedness, military servicemembers show slightly higher levels of financial well-being compared to the general population.The report was released by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which created a test to measure financial well-being. Scores range from 0-100, with a higher score correlating to higher levels of financial well-being.The average score was 61 for a servicemember on active duty and 60 for reserve members. The general population had the lowest share of higher scores at just 36%. Fifty percent of active servicemembers and 45% of reserve members scored higher than 61. The average score for the general population was 54.The general population had the most individual scores in the bottom tier at 13%. Servicemembers combined to have just 10% score lower than 10.“The higher levels of financial well-being exhibited by servicemembers may be explained by certain characteristics and benefits of military service,” the report states. “For example, the CFPB found in its research that U.S. adults with a stable month-to-month income had a higher score (56) than those whose income varies from month-to-month (50). Individuals with employer-provided health benefits had a higher score (56) than those without (51).”Of course, this report does not imply that servicemembers do not have financial challenges. According to the survey, about one-third of servicemembers have less than one month of emergency savings, and 23% of junior enlisted servicemembers had no emergency funds.The CFPB recently started its “Start Small, Save Up” initiative, after research found 40% of Americans could not cover a $400 emergency expense.A 2018 National Association of REALTORS Research Group report entitled “Veterans & Active Military Home Buyers Profile” found that active-duty military make up 2% of all American homebuyers, with veterans accounting for 17%, and 81% non-military. The report also found that, while active-duty military homebuyers do have a lower median income than non-military buyers at $84,000, they have other advantages, including stable job security and no-down-payment financing options. A full 56% of active-duty homebuyers put no money down when purchasing a home, and 41% of veterans. For comparison’s sake, only 7% of non-military buyers are able to make use of no-down-payment financing options.Among active-duty military who financed their home, 77% used a VA loan and 15% used a conventional loan. For veterans, 58% used a VA loan and 33% used a conventional loan.Overall financial well being has been a topic of discussion in recent weeks after April’s job’s report showed the lowest unemployment rate (3.6%) since 1969.  April saw the addition of 263,000 jobs, which was the strongest month for job growth since January and the 103rd straight month of gains.“Today’s report suggests that the labor market remains healthy, which should ease recession concerns and curb expectations of a Fed rate cut for the moment,” Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist, said. “We expect the Fed to remain patient given a solid labor market and little evidence of upside inflation risks.Representatives from the mortgage servicing industry recently gathered for a charity golf tournament benefiting military servicemembers through Operation Homefront.

Rocket Companies’ founder, Dan Gilbert, is worth $7.1 billion.Bloomberg added that Rocket Companies has stated it earned $97.7 million on revenue of $1.8 billion in three months ended March 31. This is compared to a loss of $299 million on $727 million in revenue a year earlier.News of the IPO circulated last month, with CNBC reported that it could be the largest IPO of the year. CNBC added that Quicken Loans is working with Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, and JPMorgan to manage the deal. Valuation has yet to be decided but CNBC reports that it is “tens of billions of dollars” and possibly one of the largest IPOs of the year.Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner told CNBC that March was the “biggest closing month in our company’s history with nearly $21 billion in mortgages closed.”According to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), mortgage applications continue their resurgence during COVID-19.Applications rose 2.2% from the prior week, according to the MBA, and purchases were up weekly by 33%.  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Mike Albanese July 8, 2020 2,133 Views Quicken Loans Officially Files for IPO Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
