Posted on Updated on

 

 (One World) Thought of the Day

 

images

On this day 13 years ago many thousands of innocent people lost their lives due to someone’s evil expression of hate. We as a people must remember all those we lost and we must now allow their legacy to motivate our desire for a better world. Organized Love will always win over concentrated hate. Just as true brotherhood will always win over separatism. Peace, Love and tolerance toward another human being is no longer a choice, we must make this our lifestyle.

Abraham Lincoln said, “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection

In communities, around the world this must be a core message.

President Barack Obama will tonight deliver a major speech where he is expected to prepare the American people and the world for a protracted air campaign against Islamic State jihadists in both Syria and Iraq. The legacy-defining address will begin at 9 p.m.ET and is expected to run about 15 minutes. (Tune in at 8:45 p.m ET. for live coverage of the speech,

Mr Obama will speak from the White House during the prime-time evening television hour in an effort to reach a maximum audience as he makes the case for returning to war in the Middle East.

Speaking on the eve of the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the President is expected to argue that Syria under ISIS control would be “a safe haven” for terrorists who could one day strike America.

It also remains unclear if or when the Western allies – most likely Britain, Australia and France – would be asked to join in airstrikes against ISIS.

Wednesday’s speech comes exactly one year after Mr. Obama addressed the nation during prime-time when the US was weighing strikes against the Assad regime in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed 1,400 people in a Damascus suburb.

Their fight began at 7:30 am  with an estimated 400 fast-food workers marched on the South side Chicago an impressive show of support which is also, scheduled to be the first of many multinational campaigns for higher wages. The strategy is to “Fight for $15″ pushes for a $15 hourly wage for fast-food workers and the ability to unionize versus the current federal minimum wage remains at $7.25 an hour. The group of protesters contained, college students, labor organizers, and community activist-all who seem to be in support of a wage increase. Dozens of people participating in fast-food protests were arrested in New York, Chicago, Miami and other cities Thursday, according to police and organizers

Remarks by the President on Raising the Minimum Wage:

imagesCX9PLFLGIn Milwaukee on Monday (Labor Day) President Obama renewed  his call to raise the federal minimum wage and to protect the right to equal pay for women.  “If your member of Congress doesn’t support raising the minimum wage, you’ve got to let them know they’re out of step, and that if they keep putting politics ahead of working Americans, you’ll put them out of office.  Tell them to reconsider.  Tell them it’s time for $10.10.  You can tweet at them — use hashtag #1010Means.  Let them know how raising the minimum wage would help you, or your family, or somebody that you know.  And while you’re at it, tell them to restore unemployment insurance for Americans .”

Organizer Byron Hobbs, stated “I believe it is important to stand in solidity with this cause because these folks have to have a decent working and living wage.”  

According to the United Students against Sweatshops (USAS) is the nation’s largest youth-led, student labor campaign organization.   “Our generation is constantly reminded that we are the first generation to be financially worse off than our parents. The biggest concern for many university students is not whether they’ll be able to find good jobs, but any jobs after graduating. It’s becoming clear that when conditions deteriorate for the lowest paid workers, the standards drop for all workers,” said one Governors State University Student. Also present was Organizer Charles Austin from the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless was present to represent homeless and low paid workers, “This cause is serious because these workers need to survive and the current living wage, now is just not working.” Many of the workers are a step from being homeless and we want to prevent that.”

McDonald’s released the following statements regarding the protest:

“At McDonald’s we respect everyone’s rights to peacefully protest. The topic of minimum wage goes well beyond McDonald’s- it affects our country’s entire workforce. McDonald’s and our independent franchisees support paying our valued employees fair wages aligned with a competitive marketplace. We believe that any minimum wage increase should be implemented over time so that the impact on owners of small and medium-sized businesses – like the ones who own and operate the majority of our restaurants – is manageable.  Additionally, we believe that any increase needs to be considered in a broad context, one that considers, for example, the impact of the Affordable Care Act and its definition of “full time” employment, as well as the treatment, from a tax perspective, of investments made by businesses owners.”

 Burger King released the following statements regarding the protest:

“Burger King Corp. (BKC) respects the rights of all workers; however BKC does not make scheduling, wage or other employment-related decisions for the franchises who independently own and operate almost 100 percent of Burger King Restaurants.”

From the Organization Action Now-Community Activist Brandon Askew is in agreement with the  wage increase and has participated in several of the Protest marches across the county, in his own words “8.25 percent of us live below the poverty level, we need this to happen now.” Also we must add that McDonald’s is raked in $5 billion in profits last year.” The McDonald’s CEO Shows at income at 8.75 million.

“The bottom line is, America deserves a raise,” “But until we’ve got a Congress that cares about raising working folks’ wages, it’s up to the rest of us to make it happen.” (President Barack Obama)

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr recognized the labor’s workers fight for Economic Justice

Many Americans know that the 20th century’s most famous civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr., was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn., on April 4, 1968, he was in Memphis to support 1,300 sanitation workers who were in the throes of a bitter, difficult strike. His numerous historical references and Biblical stories firmly established the link between the union members’ battle for equality on the job with the broader, fundamental battle for basic human rights it should be noted that King’s last speech was also a testament to his commitment to the labor movement because Dr. King recognized that labor’s fight for economic justice was a vital component for social change. 

 

 

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

                                           Martin Luther King, Jr.
