"Just as mass incarceration has burdened American Taxpayers in major prison states, so is the use of inmate labor contributing to lost jobs, unemployment and decreased wages among woorkers - while corporate profits soar," says Alex Friedmann, associate editor of Prison Legal News.

Last week I went to a function at the Harris County Democratic Party. A young speaker at the event spent about half a hour talking about the United Steelworkers Union strike against 11 refineries including Royal Dutch Shell and LyondellBasell in the Houston Area.
I read a lot of news. Why is this news not widely out there. At a time when we are constantly talking about income inequality and wealth disparity one would think it would be covered. At a time when labor unions are in decline, how is it not news?

National Review: Since Politics Nation debuted on MSNBC on August 29, 2011, Al Sharpton’s nonprofit National Action Network has collected more than $2.38 million in contributions from unions, according to Department of Labor records. Meanwhile, Sharpton has often used his show to promote pro-labor viewpoints, also inviting union leadership on as guests.
Sharpton has swapped donations to National Action Network for air time before, though it’s unclear whether such arrangements apply to his MSNBC show. Sharpton has swapped donations to National Action Network for air time before, though it’s unclear whether such arrangements apply to his MSNBC show.

When President Obama pushed his health care overhaul plan through Congress, he counted labor unions among his strongest supporters. But some unions leaders have grown frustrated and angry about what they say are unexpected consequences of the new law -- problems that they say could jeopardize the health benefits offered to millions of their members. The issue could create a political headache next year for Democrats facing re-election if disgruntled union members believe the Obama administration and Congress aren't working to fix the problem. "It makes an untruth out of what the president said, that if you like your insurance, you could keep it," said Joe Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. "That is not going to be true for millions of workers now."

Pastor Brad Morgan of New Life Beginnings Church in Pattison, TX begins speaking from 1 Corianthians 15:58 where it says, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." God wants you to know that your labor is not in vain. If you are doing what God has called you to do, your labor is not in vain. God is the one that keeps the books, God is the one that sees what we do. There will be an open reward from God. Hebrews 11:6 says, "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."
God has deposited something into you. With the fresh annointing that is coming, there is going to come an encouraging from the Holy Spirit to guide our lives. Romans 8:14 says, "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God." We want to be led by the Holy Spirit.
Pastor Brad concludes his teaching speaking of the abundance of rain to come and it's significance. Teaching from 1 Kings 18, beginning in verse 20.
