Las falsas noticias sobre desempleo

first_imgPocos trabajadoras/es se alegran del informe del Departamento de Trabajo sobre la tasa de desempleo que cayó a 4,4 por ciento en abril.¿Por qué deberían hacerlo? Mientras que la tasa de desempleo ahora coincide con el nivel de mayo de 2007, justo antes de la última crisis económica capitalista, todavía deja a 7,1 millones de personas “oficialmente” desempleadas.Incluso el Departamento de Trabajo admite que 5,3 millones de personas que se cuentan como empleadas, están obligadas a trabajar a tiempo parcial, a pesar de que quieren y necesitan puestos de trabajo a tiempo completo. Otras 1,5 millones de personas “no fueron contadas como desempleadas porque no habían buscado trabajo en las cuatro semanas anteriores a la encuesta”, según la Oficina de Estadísticas Laborales.Muchas personas con discapacidades no están incluidas entre las desempleadas. Los 2,2 millones de miembros de la clase obrera encarcelados ni siquiera son consideradas/os. Tampoco las miles que recogen latas y botellas por una pequeña cuota de depósito en Nueva York y algunos otros estados.Mientras que la tasa de desempleo más reciente para las/os blancos es de 3,8 por ciento, la cifra de trabajadoras/es negros es más del doble, con un 7,9 por ciento. “Empleado último, despedido primero” sigue siendo el estándar racista para las/os afroamericanos.En el apogeo de la “prosperidad” capitalista, las/os trabajadores negros y sus familias siguen estancados en una recesión. Es una depresión para las/os adolescentes negros, cuya última tasa de desempleo es de 29,3 por ciento.Por lo general, una caída del desempleo se acompaña de un aumento de los salarios. Las/os trabajadores se sienten más seguros de tener puestos de trabajo mejor remunerados o exigir aumentos.Pero esta vez no. El aumento promedio del salario de 2,5 por ciento en los últimos 12 meses fue casi eliminado por la inflación, que aumentó un 2,4 por ciento. Para las/os trabajadores que reciben el miserable salario mínimo federal de $7,25 por hora, la inflación significó un recorte salarial.Todos los ataques dirigidos contra los sindicatos, incluso contra las/os trabajadores públicos, han tenido su efecto. Durante los últimos 40 años, miles de bastiones sindicales han sido cerrados por los capitalistas aprovechando la automatización.Tener millones de desempleadas/os es una necesidad para las ganancias capitalistas. Frederick Engels, el compañero de trabajo de Karl Marx, llamó a las/os desempleados un “ejército industrial de reserva”.Los capitalistas lo saben bien. Samuel Insull – cuyo imperio de servicios utilitarios Midwest se desplomó durante la Gran Depresión – se jactó de que “la mayor ayuda a la eficiencia del trabajo es una larga fila de hombres esperando en la puerta”. Refiriéndose a  las mujeres y los hombres que buscan desesperadamente un trabajo.Las/os trabajadores soportan tanto abuso porque saben que el patrono puede contratar a alguien para reemplazarles.Mientras que millones necesitan un trabajo, millones de trabajadoras/es están obligados a trabajar dos puestos o más de trabajo con el fin de pagar su vivienda. “La condena de una parte de la clase obrera a la ociosidad forzada por el exceso de trabajo de la otra parte, y la inversa, se convierte en un medio de enriquecer a los capitalistas individuales”, escribió Marx en “El Capital”.El movimiento obrero necesita luchar por una semana laboral de 30 horas sin recorte de salario.El primer plan quinquenal de la Unión Soviética abolió el desempleo en 1930. La planificación económica socialista hizo que el empleo fuera un derecho de todas/os los trabajadores soviéticos.Tenemos que luchar por una revolución socialista que abolirá el desempleo y la pobreza para siempre.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF complains to UN about coronavirus press freedom violations

first_img April 14, 2020 – Updated on April 15, 2020 RSF complains to UN about coronavirus press freedom violations Help by sharing this information Protecting journalistsInternational bodies EnvironmentUnited Nations News RSF_en Protecting journalistsInternational bodies EnvironmentUnited Nations Sent on 13 April to the special rapporteur on the right to health, the Lithuanian Dainius Pūras, and to the special rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression, the American David Kaye, the letter asks them to condemn governments that have either used the epidemic as grounds for violating the right to information, or have done so in spite of it.The facts reported in the letter have been gathered by a new RSF tool called Tracker-19 in reference not only to Covid-19 but also article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This RSF tool aims to evaluate the Covid-19 pandemic’s consequences for journalism, documenting state censorship and deliberate disinformation, and their impact on the right to reliable news and information. It also offers recommendations on how to defend journalism during the pandemic.The letter lists cases of censorship, arbitrary detention, harassment or violence against journalists, and disturbing legislative development in a total of 38 countries. The list is not exhaustive.The Brazilian and US president have staged ferocious verbal attacks on journalists. Reporters have been arrested in Algeria, Jordan and Zimbabwe. An Orwellian law has imposed an “information police state” in Hungary. Cambodia’s prime minister has used the Covid-19 crisis to bolster his authority. And in China, the suppression of journalism allowed the epidemic to spread in Wuhan, and then to the rest of the world. RSF is also very concerned about journalists in Turkey and Saudi Arabia who, despite the epidemic, are still detained in prisons where they are very vulnerable to the virus.RSF asks the special rapporteurs to issue not just a warning but also an “urgent appeal” to each country where press freedom violations jeopardizing the right to health have been observed. The aim to is to obtain concrete measures, such as the release of imprisoned journalists.Attached to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva, the special rapporteurs are tasked with examining, monitoring, advising and publicly reporting on human rights issues under “special procedure” mechanisms. If violations are confirmed, the rapporteurs can denounce them and ask the governments concerned to address them. What they have observed can also be included in their public reports to the UN Human Rights Council and UN General Assembly.David Kaye, Harlem Désir (the OSCE representative on freedom of the media) and Edison Lanza (the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights special rapporteur for freedom of expression) issued a joint statement about the Covid-19 pandemic on 19 March, stressing the importance of truthful information by governments, protecting the work of journalists, and combatting disinformation.UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet voiced concern on 9 April about the measures taken by some countries to restrict press freedom and freedom of expression and, in particular, about censorship of criticism on the grounds of combatting disinformation.RSF’s letter also calls on the special rapporteurs to publicly proclaim that the right to information is “inherent” to the right to health, that the former is an essential component of the latter, that they are necessarily and closely linked and inseparable. Recognizing the right to information as inherent to the right to health would extend the former’s scope , especially when safeguarding public health is at issue, and would help to combat both disinformation and arbitrary restrictions on information more effectively.Enshrining an intrinsic link between the right to information and the right to health would mean that all arbitrary restrictions of the first would also be violations of the second. The balance between the two rights would thereby be assured, and would prevent the protection of public health being used as a pretext for censorship or disinformation.The preamble of the International Declaration on Information and Democracy, approved by a commission of 25 prominent persons from 18 countries, says: “Knowledge is necessary for human beings to develop their biological, psychological, social, political and economic capacities.”On the basis of this Declaration, 35 countries have joined an Information and Democracy Partnership that recognizes the right to reliable information and says: “Information can be regarded as reliable insofar as its collection, processing and dissemination are free, independent, diverse and based on cross-checking of various sources, in a pluralistic media landscape where the facts can give rise to a diversity of interpretation and viewpoints.”“The coronavirus epidemic requires respect for the principles of press freedom and the right to information,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “As the Declaration on Information and Democracy says, ‘the right to information consists of the freedom to seek, receive and access reliable information.’  Violating this right endangers the health and even the lives of human beings. We call on the UN’s institutions to publicly denounce governments that violate this right.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has written to two United Nations special rapporteurs asking them to formally condemn governments that have violated the right to information in connection with the coronavirus epidemic, thereby putting public health and lives in danger both in their own countries and the rest of the world.

Robin Hood: Bad for Texas

first_img Previous articleHometown ShowNext articleCountry crooner featured at Rolling 7’s admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The commitment to our state’s next generation began in the earliest days of the Texas Revolution and continues through a mandate in our state’s constitution. More than one third of the state budget ($80.433 billion) is dedicated to agencies of education to fund public schools in Texas.In 2016, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that while the current school finance system is constitutional, it is “undeniably imperfect, with immense room for improvement.” One of the greatest priorities of the Texas Legislature in 2017 was to reform the school finance system.Texas schools aren’t serving students or taxpayers as well as they should and there are two large reasons why. Under the “Robin Hood” recapture system, local tax dollars are shifted to a large bureaucracy in Austin and to other parts of the state. It’s no secret that this scheme has had a detrimental effect on many schools across West Texas. Due to the minerals and resources that the Permian Basin is blessed with, many Permian Basin school districts have been labeled as “property-wealthy,” a designation which has caused our local property taxes to be recaptured and sent to Austin for bureaucrats to redistribute in accordance with an outdated formula. While it is important to ensure that students across the state have the opportunity to learn regardless of their financial circumstance or their geographic location, it is also important to allow oil patch school districts to benefit from resources they provide. I proudly introduced legislation to repeal Robin Hood, but the measure simply didn’t have the votes to get it passed during the 2017 legislative session.I am working to be persuade my colleagues on this issue and I have to be very candid about how these policies are playing out in West Texas. But more than just being able to persuade colleagues on the issue, everybody has to understand that we’re dealing with very imperfect policies. According to the Texas Education Agency, there were 347 property-wealthy school districts during the 2017-2018 school year, and projections for the 2018-2019 school year has that number growing to 451. As that number increases, I am optimistic that we are building more and more support for a repeal of Robin Hood. More school districts and more legislators are starting to find out what we’ve known in West Texas for years now. For these reasons, I will be filing legislation during the 2019 legislative session to repeal Robin Hood.My goal for the 2019 legislative session is to enable school districts and local property taxpayers to determine what to do with their money. I also aspire for Texas to be a place where teachers can teach the way they see best fits their students, and students can focus on learning rather than testing alone, while also ensuring accountability for our tax dollars spent on education. School finance reform that is pro-student and pro-taxpayer can be a big win for the future of Texas.God Bless Texas!State Rep. Brooks Landgraf serves Texas House District 81, which encompasses Andrews, Ector, Ward and Winkler counties.

SEAGD names Wiley Lott director of economic development

first_img SEAGD names Wiley Lott director of economic development Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The Southeast Alabama Gas District has named Wiley Lott director of economic development and governmental affairs.Lott assumed his new post March 2 and will work out of an office in Montgomery.Wiley Lott“We are very fortunate to attract someone with Wiley’s background and experience to serve in this very important position,” Greg Henderson, president of Southeast Alabama Gas District, said in a released statement. “We are committed to playing a leadership role in economic development in our state and Wiley is the right person to partner with others in helping to bring new jobs and economic opportunity to those we serve.” Email the author Lott has served on the economic development team for Alabama Power Company and also worked as director for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.“I am looking forward to working with Greg, members of his team, the gas district board of directors and community economic development leaders across this state to help attract good paying jobs to our state,” Lott said. “I am convinced we have everything we need to be successful if we work together as a team to recruit new industry to our state and help our existing businesses expand.”For Lott, the new position is a way of coming home. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration After Lott completed his law degree, he went to work for Wal-Mart. As director of real estate, he traveled all across the country.“But no matter where I went, Alabama was always in the back of my mind,” he said.Lott got the opportunity to come back to Alabama in 2008 with Alabama Power.“I worked for Alabama Power for five years,” he said. “Alabama Power is a great company and I thought that I would retire with them. But, when Southeast Alabama Gas District offered me this opportunity to come back home and work for folks down here, that’s what I wanted to do. That’s what Suzy and I wanted for us and for our children.”Lott said that his territory with SEAGD will be the lower one-third of the state. He will work with local economic development groups to recruit business and industry to the area.“It has always been in my heart to help our people by bringing jobs to Alabama,” he said.“I’m excited to be able to help our folks.”Lott said it might be cliché but what sets Alabama apart and makes it a prime location for new businesses and industries is its people.“Our people,” he said. “That’s the bottom line. It’s the work ethic of our people. They show up for work on time and they work hard and take pride in what they do. That was the work ethic of our folks generations ago and it still is today. What most of our folks want is to be able to work at home and make a good living for their families. That’s what set us apart. We are home folks.”Lott said Alabama is also a prime physical location for new industries.“But what we hang our hat on is our people,” he said. “And, when we go out to recruit new industries, we go as a team and we work together as a team to market our state. That’s the way we do things in Alabama.”Lott will work his territory from his Montgomery office but will continue to live in Hoover.“Our son, Chancellor, is a junior at Spain Park High School and he plays football,” Lott said.“Our daughter, Kaiti is a ninth grader at Spain. We don’t want to move them so we’ll stay in Hoover until they’re both out of high school. But, I’m home and there’s no place I would rather be.” Sponsored Content He was born in Beards Hospital in Troy, grew up in Brundidge and graduated from Pike Liberal Arts School in 1984.He earned his undergraduate degree at Troy University and his law degree at the University of Arkansas.“I left Pike County in 1988 and now, 25 years later, I have this opportunity to get back home,” Lott said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for me and my family. Suzy and I have always wanted our children to grow up around family.“The Lotts have been in Pike County for eight generations and my mother’s family, the Chancellors, has been in Linwood and Saco for generations. We also have family in Goshen. We’re all over Pike County.” Skip Book Nook to reopen Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Nationwide to start building its first housing development

first_imgHome » News » Land & New Homes » Nationwide to start building its first housing development previous nextLand & New HomesNationwide to start building its first housing developmentThe building society says it is to build 239 houses for sale and rent near its headquarters in Swindon.Nigel Lewis15th July 20190783 Views The Nationwide building society is to begin constructing its first housing development after gaining planning permission for a site in Swindon, close to its headquarters.Some 239 houses and apartments are now to be built at Oakfield Campus both for sale and to rent all on a not-for-profit basis and with the aim of creating a more neighbourly community, the building society says.It’s the latest move by Nationwide to go ‘back to the future’ and re-embrace the organisation’s roots as a backer of good quality, affordable homes.The £50 million development will be mostly two, three and four-bedroom terraced houses and maisonettes but the site will also include a block of apartments and each will come with at least one parking space, and either a garden or access to a communal green space.Building work is to begin later this year and the first properties will be available for sale and to rent from Spring 2021 onwards.They have been designed in partnership with award-winning housing specialist Igloo Regeneration, which has also been sub-contracted to build the properties.“We’re delighted to receive approval to deliver a long-lasting, high quality development in collaboration with local residents and Swindon Borough Council,” says Joe Garner, Nationwide’s Chief Executive (left).“As a building society we were founded to help improve housing, rather than maximising profit and shareholder return. Helping create these new homes and a thriving community is a great example of how we are guided by our purpose of building society, nationwide.”Read more about Nationwide.Joe Garner Swindon Nationwide July 15, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

OUCA accuses Student Union of “political bias” over Freshers’ Fair

first_imgOxford University Conservative Association (OUCA) have become embroiled in a dispute with the Oxford University Student Union over an incident at last week’s Freshers’ Fair.OUCA accused the Student Union of “political bias” after they were repeatedly asked to move a Union Jack flag that they were displaying behind their stall over the three day fair. The Student Union became concerned about “health and safety issues”. The Stallholder Regulations provided by OUSU for clubs and societies wishing to recruit at the Freshers’ Fair said, “You must not create any obstruction across floors, or projecting from under or over tables.” It continues, “This applies to both the vicinity of your stall and to gangways/doors. No obstructive exhibits are allowed.”Chris Allan, OUSU’s Vice-President (Finance) said, “I spoke to the organisers and they informed me that the flag was adjusted for health and safety reasons.”OUSU President Emma Norris, said, “During setup of the freshers’ fair OUSU organisers asked them to move their flag up because people were tripping up over it.”A press release issued by OUCA claimed that the Student Union’s treatment was unfair and that they felt aggrieved that neighbouring stands, which they claim also had low-hanging banners, were not made to adjust them.OUCA Publicity Officer, Charlie Steel, said, “OUCA is very disappointed with OUSU’s clear political affiliations during Freshers’ Fair.”He continued, “The Labour Club stand was directly behind us; its banner was allowed to be a lot lower than ours.”Martin McCluskey, Chair of Oxford University Labour Club (OULC), whose stand was adjacent to OUCA’s, said, “Their flag did drape onto the floor and over the floor space where our activists were standing.”He said that their flag had been “half the size and secured by sturdy poles.” He added, “Their flag was supported by bamboo canes tied together with electrical tape – I don’t call that safe.”Christopher Ware, OUCA President, said, “I was surprised at the OUSU officials’ sustained obstructive and abusive attitude towards the OUCA stand.”Ware maintains that the OUCA Union Jack did not impose on neighbouring stands, saying, “We used masking tape, we used bamboo shoots; emphatically there was no way that it could have intruded on anyone.”One member of OUCA, who wished to remain anonymous, said, “The flag is an emblem of OUCA and cost over £400 to purchase.” He continued, “The flag is always present at every social event worth its salt, and I was disappointed that freshers were not able to see it in its displayed in its full glory.” Another member said, “Let us hope that this dispute has not spoilt the esteemed political reputation of the organisation, of which we are all proud to be members.”ARCHIVE: 1st week MT 2005last_img read more

A day in the life of…

first_imgJohn Watts works as senior technologist at ingredients supplier to the baking industry, National Starch Food Innovation. He formerly worked as process manager for British Bakels. Now, clearly relishing his new role, he takes us through a typical day.6amMost people won’t believe me when I say this, but I actually look forward to waking up every morning. The reason? My breakfast.Having a girlfriend who teaches catering is handy. She’s always keen to know what’s going on in the ingredients world. I sometimes bring back samples of our resistant starch for her to try out new recipes. She repays the favour by baking trays of muffins for me to share around the office.The usual morning routine ensues: an hour in the gym to activate my mind and body and then a half-hour drive to work, with the radio blaring. It’s the morning after the night before and I need to get the lowdown on the rugby scores.8.30amWith the whole week ahead, there’s a lot of preparation to do: samples to make, meetings to organise and problems to solve. A hectic schedule seems to be an intrinsic part of life in the baking industry.Today I’m in the lab, baking-off products with our resistant starch Hi-maize. Muffins and cookies are firm consumer favourites. In the past, these have suffered a less-than-healthy reputation, causing more and more people to turn their backs on baked goods. But Hi-maize can help to reverse this trend.The nutritional benefits of Hi-maize in baked goods are easy to explain: it increases fibre without changing taste or texture; can help keep your digestive system healthy and much more. But, it’s one thing telling customers about its product attributes, and another being able to demonstrate them. We usually add between 15-40% to replace flour, depending on the application and claims required. Often, we make up a selection of samples – some baked with Hi-maize, some without. We then open up the texture debate, asking customers to guess which ones contain the resistant starch and which don’t. Invariably they can’t decide.Work is a true passion for me. You could say it’s in my genes. My mother and grandmother both worked in the catering industry, so I’ve been involved all my life. As a result, for me, taste, texture and mouthfeel are all important.1pmThe morning flies by and I’m glad when lunchtime arrives – time for a well-earned break and a chat about last night’s game.I return to the office and pick up some messages – a sample request and a customer re-scheduling a meeting. I settle at my desk to return calls and respond to my e-mails. With administration over, I gather my things and set off to see a customer. On the way, I call the team back in Manchester to check everything’s running smoothly in the lab.2.30pmTravelling is part and parcel of my job and I’ve grown to enjoy it in the last few months. Face-to-face contact with customers is key. It’s the best way to really get to know their business and highlight how we can help them.We don’t just meet development teams though. We’ve come to realise that communication with the marketing team is equally important. They need to know what resistant starch is all about and how, with its multiple benefits, it can enrich a product’s marketing strategy.The ’potential’ customer I’m visiting today, a major player in the baking industry, wants to know more about resistant starch, its role and how it can add value to the firm’s bakery products. I talk them through possible positioning strategies, emphasising the main features and benefits.3.30pmBack on the road to see another customer. Earlier today we received a call from a baker with formulation issues. He had incorporated Hi-maize at the same rate as wheat flour and added too much water to the mix, creating problems for the dough rheology. My role, as senior technologist, is to come up with a solution tailored to the customer’s needs. Technical support is a large part of the package that National Starch Food Innovation offers and covers ingredient selection, formulations advice, product trials, legislative guidance and labelling.5pmCustomer visits over, I’m usually back at the office writing up a report of the day’s activity and planning for tomorrow. I flick through the small pile of magazines in my in-tray to keep abreast of developments in the food industry. Then I answer a few more e-mails, catch up with the other ’techies’ and finally shut down my computer.6pmOn my way out, I put a sponsorship form in everyone’s in-tray. Together with some colleagues, I’m doing a sponsored diet for Francis House Children’s Hospice, a Manchester-based charity offering families of sick children respite from their role as carers. National Starch Food Innovation has generously agreed to contribute one pound for every pound we collectively lose.On the way home I get a call requesting my attendance at the local pub quiz. When I arrive, there’s a pint waiting for me – not altogether in keeping with my new diet, but still a welcome and relaxing end to a hectic day. nlast_img read more
