SORT BY Relevancy
Join James Ellias for a 20 minute exploration of the unjust moral standards behind the California minimum wage increase.
On Tuesday, November 5th, NJ voters will be asked to vote on a minimum wage increase, which will not only become law but a NJ State Constitutional Amendment.
While proponents of the minimum wage increase profess to be helping out those most in need, they refuse to look to the facts and figures that point to the completely opposite direction.
Joining us as we discuss the implications of an amendment to our NJ State Constitution and the harsh economic realities of a mandated wage increase is Matt Rooney founder of the Save Jersey blog.
We will also expose the myth of who the minimum wage earner really is; who will be hit the hardest by this increase; how the job market will be affected; how poverty will be affected and impact on the economic competitiveness of NJ.

Long-Term Unemployment Insurance would not needed, If Minimum Wage would be Increased!
Now, with Congress in recess, long-term unemployment insurance will come to an end for 1.3 million Americans, potentially costing 240,000 jobs, according to the White House's Council of Economic Advisers. Was it inevitable? Or was it a case of political mismanagement?
Jane and Jon start the show telling how they have techno hazards at the atm, new phone devices and accidental texting. How it can get one in trouble and how it can happen so fast. They then shift gears and Jane discusses an article by Jim Hightower about the Marriott Inn, low wages and how they expect customers to tip housemaids for the compensation of low wages vs. just getting a raise. The debate filters out to profit v. capability of corporations giving raises based on fair market values. Bob thinks high rent cannot sustain a single family dwelling and how wages don't match rent prices. They end the show with some mixed feelings on these subjects.

Minimum Wage ~ Was the Michael Sam Cake Kiss Good for the Gay Rights Movement ~
On this edition of Carson's Corner, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Harry Cason of the Zeitgeist Movement to the program to discuss how to create a new sustainable world. The working class undoubtedly faces many challenges- change is easier said than done. However, there are steps that we can take to overcome the ruling class. Harry Cason believes that we have to sell everyone a program that contains enormous benefits to everyone. Bob Carson believes we have to reevaluate the way we look at the market system and move beyond capitalism. Capitalism in its current ( and arguably any form) is not designed to address human needs, and therefore continuing capitalism will only further increase the pain of the working class. This consciousness spurred on by the miserable conditions of the working class will lead to a revolution. Christopher Driscoll believes that we need to pull out the rug from the ruling class- the rug of legitimacy- and establish worker owned factories and workplaces. Thomas Baldwin believes a new set of principles will emerge from a value system. All believe that the ballot box is no ride to power for the working class, so what do we do? What course of action should we take? Tune into Carson's Corner to hear this very unique discussion that you will hear few places elsewhere.
The Rory T Edwards show with Sheila Robinson will elevate your attitude to increase your altitude, through the process of communication, wisdom, vision, experience, structures & actions which will empower you to take responsibility for the outcomes of your most precision possession, YOU !!

As of this writing, Reuters has announced that that the "president who cried Wolf" is set to announce the outlying of his plan to relax the US immigration policy and grant relief and possibly amnesty to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants and then some.
This is all very interesting as the majority of Americans in poll after poll of come right out and said that they do not want amnesty in fact, in the president's own words…
"… The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is a magnitude not seen in this country for over century… It also threatens to depress further wage is a blue-collar Americans [low skilled workers] and put strains on an already overburdened safety net."
In previous remarks, Obama speaking about the upcoming amnesty proposal that illegal immigrants [aliens] "For starters, they would have to pass a tough background check, pay taxes, pay fines and learn English."
[Logistically, how was I going to happen and where the penalties if they don't comply?]
You agree or disagree with the president?
Tune in or call a Saturday morning, November 22 4 PM Pacific time as we will discuss President Obama's announcement.
