Why America’s job loss?

Americans are questioning the merits of globalization. The global corporations are raking in billions, while job losses and falling wages drive down our living standards. The question, however, is who is to blame and what to do.

One thing is clear. Globalization is here to stay. But, unless workers understand what underlies it, they will remain a pawn in the hands of the corporations, fighting other workers here and globally for the few left over crumbs. Further, as more jobs are lost, a sentiment is being cultivated to get workers here to blame other nations, especially China, for our poverty. This line of reasoning -- if not challenged -- could result in the U.S. workers lining up with reactionary forces that are developing the fascist political movements the corporations need.


Cover Story

Is Poverty Knocking on Your Door?

It's not hard to see the poverty that is growing by leaps and bounds in our country. The homeless are the most undeniable expression of it, and even the government admits that they number in the millions. What is not so clear is that what is producing the poverty and homelessness is a process that is a threat to every worker, regardless of how securely employed they may seem at the moment

The New York Times not very long ago described the homeless who are living in their cars, the so-called "mobile homeless," many of whom went from living in comfortable homes in "middle class" neighborhoods to living in their cars on the streets of those same neighborhoods.
