We take sides - for truth and justice. We are partisan to working people, racially and nationally oppressed peoples, women, the GLBT community, youth, seniors and international solidarity. Since 1924, our press has been in the battles of the U.S. working class and people's movements. From the battles of the unemployed and the campaigns to organize the CIO, through the civil rights and peace movements of the 1960s and '70s to the struggles that have given us the "new" labor movement, to the people's upsurge that elected our first African American president, and now the growing movement for a progressive, people's agenda - we've been--and are--there. The PW is part of the independent and free press tradition, and now the growing netroots movement, in the U.S. We are funded exclusively by our readers - no corporate money. With a small staff and a network of volunteers, we are proud to put out what many call "the best labor newspaper in the country."

She Works in a Homeless Shelter, and She Lives in One, Too

"Many workers who tend to New York City’s most vulnerable residents are themselves in precarious economic situations. Some take on multiple jobs, work staggering amounts of overtime and still struggle to find their own homes.

Acacia, which operates roughly 50 shelters and programs and employs over 1,000 people to staff shelters, and its affiliates have received more than $1.5 billion in city contracts in the past decade, according to the city comptroller’s office.

“Should those people get paid more?” said Raul Russi, Acacia’s chief executive. “Of course they should. Do I control that? No.” (Mr. Russi said his total compensation was $862,000 in 2019.)

Nonprofits [""] should be able to do better by a work force they rely on to help run their businesses and gain their city contracts, said Kyle Bragg, the president of 32BJ SEIU, a union that represents security guards at city-run shelters and is trying to organize guards at nonprofit companies.

'When providers who receive millions of dollars in funding from the city cheat their employees out of good-paying jobs, our communities suffer collectively' " Bragg said.

NYC! Demand your Councilmember pass the SOS (Safety in Our Shelters) Act!

Good Easter Monday morning to all. Listening to news:. Gov. Cuomo talks about what it would take to reopen the businesses slowing and strategically. He stresses it needs to be in coordination of neighboring states and they must keep the eye on containment. Take time to call your local officials, county and state representatives. Urge them to be cautious and to heed Medical advise to prevent more deaths. Ask them to contact the white house and urge the president to respect his best advisor Dr. FAUCI. Who has said we must wait to protect life. Call your Federal representatives to do the same. And please add that this is not the time to sell out the Postal Workers as Trump now is talking if shutting them down and. Selling them out. This is wholely unacceptable. #45, Trump. Pushing against all medical advise wanting to get economy open and "functioning " as before. Ignoring what we have bee through what it has taken to contain and prevent more rapid deaths. He tweets that he wants to fire Dr. FAUCI. His inability to care is glaring. It bad e ough that he used his position to push an unproven medication in order to profit with his investment in the very company that makes hydrochloride. Epedimiologists, Virololigist world wide have been stressing the pandemic will not be over till there is a antiviral that helps to fight Covid19. David Navarro who has been writing about a possible pandemic to the White House since before #45 installation, says 18 months, or the time it takes to develop, test and verify effecacy . That's how long we must maintain distincing, take extra care to be cleaning and cleaning, be careful if touching surfaces, covering our faces and hands.

Meeting with Joe Sims: Co-Chair CPUSA
Folks, Cannot underestimate importance of July16/23 special issue of The Nation. It’s focus is on reinventing the (current anti-) debate for: an honest, integrated, just, creative, and sustainable foreign/domestic policy. As Katrina vanden Heuvel summarizes: “Without pretending to offer a grand strategy, it provides alternative perspectives, grounded in values widely shared by the American people. We seek to instigate not only a more open debate, but a new call to action.” Headliners include Andrew Bacevich, Bill McKibben, Barbara Lee, Bernie Sanders, James Galbraith, Ro Khanna, et al. They offer programs for breaking free of the feedback loop of never ending war and police-state rule; removing our criminal enabling of Saudi atrocities in flash point Yemen; constructively addressing the growing danger of “limited” nuclear war via leadership by example vs. leadership by exception; preserving civilization from the war on environment and ourselves; making capital assets and financing democratically accessible; diplomatically anticipating the dangers of China’s massive, growing and precarious financial markets through new global financial controls. In sum, re-framing the sterile and hubristic neo-imperial foreign policy consensus misleading us into military, economic and environmental holocaust. With his eye on the ball and heart with the working class, Bernie Sanders concludes: “the first step in winning this fight is to correctly identify the challenge. Internationally, we must have the courage to take on the global oligarchy and bring power to the many, not the few. This world belongs to all of us, not just a handful of billionaires.”
