What Nirvana's birthplace taught me about inequality

"While reporting on state taxation, I was reminded that Washington — a place I’d called home for over five years until last fall — had policies that place a heavy tax burden on poor people." State tax systems take a higher share of income from people with less money than those with more. Reporter Melissa Hellmann visited a town in Washington state to see the results.

ABERDEEN, Wash. — The further I drove from Seattle toward the coast, the denser the grove of evergreen trees on a drizzly July morning. Off of the Olympia Highway,  a green welcome-to-Aberdeen sign bore the song lyrics “Come as you are” — an ode to grunge band Nirvana, which formed in the o...

Small business lending looks unequal. Getting the data has been a battle.

The lack of lender-by-lender, application-by-application data for small business loans is a harmful gap that allows discrimination to continue unchecked, community advocacy groups say.

For small business loans, there's no national public information. It simply doesn’t exist. Now, though, it’s finally on track to be created.

When you’re out shopping, keep in mind that some of the outlets selling furniture, electronics, and other goods may have a history of failing to pay their workers. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor cited about 8,500 employers for not paying $287 million to workers.

While millions of legal immigrants pay taxes and contribute to their communities for years, there are significant barriers to obtaining full citizenship, which also limits obtaining voting rights.

Noncitizens are prohibited from voting in federal elections, and false claims that they are doing so illegally have been at the center of Republican campaigns seeking to demonize immigrants and make voting more difficult for people of color.

Hidden toll: Thousands of schools fail to count homeless students

Schools must provide extra support for students facing homelessness - a critical point in a child’s life. But many districts haven’t determined which students need this aid.

Our analysis of federal education data suggests roughly 𝟯𝟬𝟬,𝟬𝟬𝟬 students entitled to essential rights reserved for homeless students have slipped through the cracks, unidentified by the school districts mandated to help them.

“The national conversation on homelessness is focused on single adults who are very visible in large urban areas. It is not focused on children, youth and families. It is not focused on education,” said Barbara Duffield, executive director of SchoolHouse Connection.

A Public Integrity analysis suggests about 300,000 students entitled to rights reserved for homeless students have slipped through the cracks.

Anti-immigrant rhetoric spiked in this election. Here’s why it’s dangerous.

False claims that non-citizens are voting and influencing elections have been used to justify some new voting restrictions. Immigration advocates worry lies and hateful rhetoric brewing this election cycle could spur some to violence.

“It’s not politically popular to say, ‘Hey, I just don’t want non-whites to vote, so we’re going to create these arbitrary barriers so that only more middle-class white folks and affluent whites can vote,’ that’s not going to win you an election that’s pretty on face,” said Zachary Mueller, political director of 'sVoice.

It was 100 years ago that Alexander Terrell, a former Confederate officer and Texas representative, claimed that “Mexicans are induced on election day to swim across the Rio Grande and are voted before their hair is dry.” The Terrell Election Law of 1903, fueled by false claims that non-citizens...

🗳️ Ballot Curing – Most states don’t offer voters an opportunity to correct — or “cure” — absentee ballots after submission.

Inequality in the ability to register to vote is widening. Strict requirements disproportionately disenfranchise younger and lower-income voters and people of color.

Things that make registering to vote worse for these groups:
• Lengthy advance deadlines
• Strict documentation requirements
• Lack of options to vote by mail or online

“If people aren’t registered in some of these states a full month before, by the time the election is on their radar and they’re ready to vote, it’s too late for their registration to become active so they can participate,” said Steven Lance, a policy counsel at the Legal Defense Fund.

Costs to vote considered modern “poll taxes”

Voters today may not be charged a poll tax, but some still face costs to cast a ballot. Voter ID requirements, transportation and no paid time off to vote all come with price tags.

Under a new law, thousands of Missouri voters could have to pay $15 to acquire the documents needed to get an ID to vote.

‘Chaos and confusion’: The campaign to stamp out ballot drop boxes

Ballot drop boxes have been the target of baseless claims of voter fraud by right-wing groups.

The claims have made the boxes a focus of new voter laws that are restricting and in some cases completely eliminating voters’ access to ballot boxes.

Campaigns against drop boxes are increasingly succeeding. Laws, court rulings and politicians in at least a dozen states have targeted them.

Public Integrity honors founder Charles Lewis with renaming of fellowship

We’re happy to share that Public Integrity will be renaming the graduate fellowship in honor of founder Charles Lewis!

The joint fellowship with American University gives aspiring journalists an opportunity to report on issues related to inequality, discrimination and democracy.

Lewis had an acclaimed career as a producer for ABC News and CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” which he left to found Public Integrity in 1989.

At a ceremony honoring Public Integrity founder Charles Lewis, CEO Paul Cheung announced that the nonprofit was renaming its graduate fellowship in honor of him.

Workers have filed more than 2,000 requests to hold elections to form labor unions since the start of the fiscal year, which began in October. That’s a jump of more than 62% from fiscal year 2021 in unionizing.

Can you tackle systemic racism without confronting race?

This month, civil rights attorney Ben Crump and others sued the government for scrapping aid to Black farmers – receiving assistance has been a problem for more than a century.

A century-old debate over ‘colorblind’ remedies for racial discrimination hurts Black farmers in the U.S. Governmental jargon like “disadvantaged” and “underserved” help explain why one act of Congress failed to provide financial assistance.

In our latest Watch Dog newsletter, we take a look at the historical problem and possible solutions.

Low-paid service employees are trying to establish the first unions at multibillion-dollar companies. Corporate executives are paying thousands of dollars a day to break up organizing efforts.

- Chipotle hired three different firms to intervene in union organizing efforts at some of its restaurants over the summer.

- During the winter, The Hershey’s Company hired six union-avoidance firms to block organizing efforts at its chocolate factory in Stuarts Draft, Virginia.

- Last year Williams-Sonoma paid $47,250 to the Labor Relations Institute to “train members of management on how to comply with the National Labor Relations Act and/or to educate employees regarding their [collective bargaining] rights.”

In Washington, just over 30,000 students are identified as each school year — nearly 3% of the state’s total student population. The Center for Public Integrity estimates that as many as 2,000 additional students experience housing instability in Washington each school year but go unrecognized by their districts. http://ow.ly/fPV350LMx4k Seattle Times Education Building Changes
From The Center for Public Integrity:
The voter turnout in 2020 was a stunning 67%, according to one source. Another had it at 94%. A third fixed 2020 voter turnout at 63%.

All three are correct — because they do the math differently. They’re comparing actual voters with the number of eligible voters, registered voters and Americans of voting age, respectively.

The turnout for 2022 is still coming into focus as the last ballots continue to be tallied, but it looks to be unusually high for a midterm election.

Those turnout figures are typically discussed as evidence of voter interest (or apathy) in an election. But the way that voter turnout is calculated reveals who counts, and who is left out, in American elections.
