Despite my desire to write about damn near everything I do not have the uncanny ability to churn out piece after piece. I would love to write up personal stories from victims of the foreclosure crisis, people’s wages stolen by their employer, or the near impossibility to climb up the economic ladder. I know I will develop better habits and energy will come back as this battle with depression becomes an after thought.
But this post is not about me or how productive my fingers are on the keyboard.
I want to know about you. What would it take for you to take to the streets? Thousands have done so outside of corporate shareholder meetings. Thousands more will be out protesting the global one percent as NATO comes to Chicago.
Elected leaders continue to blame public employees for deficits in pensions. Vital assistance programs continue seeing massive cuts.
Corporations spend a tremendous amount lobbying lawmakers while hardly anyone thinks of the rest of us.
You are working more than full-time while making less than you deserve. A family member got laid off and the CEO took home a multi-million dollar bonus. The system is rigged and it prevents you, me, and others from living a Bette quality life.
So, seriously! What would it take?
