So far so good, haven't seen any serious error/problem in what I've seen so far, but I need to look more carefully, before making a judgement. But clearly the reform process is now well under way 👍🏼👍🏼
3/labor Best change is reversal of #Indira #Gandhi's arbitrary decision during infamous #emergency, to lower limit for, retrenchment w/o bureaucratic permission, from 300 to 100. This will help restore the #Missing #Middle", as firms with <100 workers are free to expand to 300

New death tax revealed for Queensland: Clive Palmer

The Palaszczuk Government was discussing a new death tax to be imposed on Queenslanders if returned to power.

The Qld Labor Govt would justify the new tax to combat its $120bn debt blowout.

Under a returned Labor Govt, we will see family assets taken by the state. Our children & grandchildren will have assets chiselled out from them after hard efforts and endeavours of those before them
“I stood with Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen when he abolished the death tax in Queensland and we saw the immediate wealth created for the state when people from Victoria and New South Wales fled the Labor states for Queensland.

🇺🇸 What about a U.S. #food policy? Is there even one to speak of right now? 🤷🏾‍♀️

Stay tuned during the coming weeks for more on a National Food Policy in the #UnitedStates.

... In the meantime, Molly Anderson and Ricardo Salvador give their take 👇🏾

The current U.S. food system is governed by a patchwork of uncoordinated policy frameworks and federal departments: #agriculture, #health, #environment, #energy, social security, #labor, #education.
So policies made at different levels of governance (e.g. municipal, state, tribal, federal) are often contradictory or disconnected from one another, leading to missed opportunities to support innovative local and regional #foodsystem initiatives already happening on the ground.

Bloomberg, Aug 25 2020: "[the] director of global macro strategy at brokerage StoneX Group, said 2020 has been the 'bear market for humans.' The problem, it turns out, is people"

#greatreset - the consolidation of global power/wealth - happening in real time. #CovidAsCatalyst
"The cluster with small numbers of employees relative to company value has returned 18% this year. The group with the highest #labor intensiveness has seen a 19% loss."

Deloitte, 2017: "Operations will cease to be delivered by humans."

Deloitte: The #Future of Operations, Deloitte Global Impact Report, Nov 13 2017


#Covid19 is the conduit to the #4IR now in full motion. As people come to terms w/ what is being forced upon humanity, we will soon regret that we did not unite to oppose to draconian lockdowns/expanding surveillance that will serve to protect/insulate ruling classes from revolt.
#UBI (universal basic income) is a tool designed by the rich to stave off #Molotov cocktails - while at the same time enriching themselves even further. The ruling class knows full well what they are unleashing - but the citizenry does not.

[THREAD] I’ve done a speed pass through some of the highlights, plus the #labor, #health sections of #Kenya’s 2020 Economic Survey. Some observations to follow.

@KeTreasury’s forecasting total tax collection of KES 1 771.4 Billion by end June. By end March, tax collections stood at KES 1 119.99 Billion.

How can KRA can magically raise KES 651 Billion Shillings in April, May and June. Seriously?

That’s approximately KES 217 Billion, each month, or nearly twice the average monthly collection [KES 124 Billion] between July 2019 and March 2020.

From an economy where consumer spending has drastically contracted. In the middle of a pandemic.

This will not have the impact on #housing that you think that it might. This is insufficient.
...“we can still get evicted after that moratorium is lifted if we're so behind on everything, that we don't have all of the back #rent ready? What if the landlord doesn't want to work with the tenant on paying them back in increments..?"
“it’s like a #rent “loan”. It helps in the beginning, but you better hope you make 2-3 times the amount when you're allowed to go back to work -otherwise you'll be in rent debt. It’s basically kind of a #housing band-aid.”

#ChinaEcon For #CCPchinaInc this is worse than Globbal Financial Crisis(GFC), bcs (1) Debt/GDP is already V high, (2) Cntrys with China trade deficits(USA, India) will resist subsidized dumping of exports, (3) It hits supply(labor) in addition to demand. Forcst 2020 GDP gr 1-3%
2/Ch #ChinaEcon This can only restore economy to previous levels, but wont help generate sustained GDP growth beyond the trend growth of real Household consumption in last 2 decades
3/ch #ChinaEcon #CCPchinaInc's Real GDP growth will return to its long run sustainable average of 4.5% +/- 0.5% by 2021 (Official growth will of course be much higher then my predicted growth during both 2020 & 2021)

@daralynn13 @PensiveTM Wait - did you see his tweet that speaks to this? Or are you being intentionally obtuse? Did the domestic workers stop boycotting buses bc Congress wldn’t act? Did Eugene Debs, Lucy Parsons, Mother Jones stop organizing for #Labor bc the same? ->
@daralynn13 @PensiveTM It takes a movement. It takes a movement of people agitating, educating & organizing. That’s the way change has always happened in this country —bottom up not vice versa. + That’s been w/out a President who commits 2 using the bully pulpit on issues he’s advocated 4 decades.
@daralynn13 @PensiveTM What did it take to end child labor? Waiting for a friendly and more humane Congress? Stop pretending to not understand. You appear quite intelligent. Get on our side.

#EU pulls part of tariff preferences to #Cambodia under EU's #EverythingButArms' #EBA trade scheme citing "serious & systematic #violations of the #humanrights principles". This effective Aug 12. This will cost Cambodia about €1 billion of Cambodia's annual exports to the EU
Last month international clothing brands even called on #Cambodia #PM #HunSen to "take specific, concrete, & time-bound steps to bring Cambodia in line with international labor standards". Warned #labor, #humanrights situation will affect trade preferences…
@hrw @Reaproy reacted to #EU withdrawal of some #trade preferences #EBA for #Cambodia saying it's not punishment to nation/people. Says it's "government’s failure to act to respect rights & fix problems" that led to this. Urges #PM #HunSen "stop his senseless threats" & negotiate ImageImageImage

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

When I “officially” endorsed #Bernie2020, the campaign asked for a “short” statement for a graphic.

I'm wordy; wrote a whole page. Oops.🤓

It’s hard to distill why I believe so strongly in this #BigUS movement & @BernieSanders, but I’d like to share my attempt.

A thread...
@BernieSanders The part of my statement that made it on the #BernieSanders graphic boils down to one word:


Bernie’s stances are grounded in principled judgment, proven to be right & just for decades. His policies prove to be successful when enacted. I know who he'll be once elected.
@BernieSanders My passion & purpose is #PublicEducation, so my endorsement is also rooted in that.

#Bernie’s full platform - from #MedicareForAll to #CriminalJusticeReform - will have profound positive impacts on students, communities, and the ed profession, in both direct & indirect ways.

1/ For the December #DemDebate @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta please consider asking questions that have been ignored so far like the #deficit, #infrastructure and how they will get their agenda passed with a slim Senate majority.
2/ For tough candidate-specific questions, @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta consider challenging #MayorPete on his experience or #BernieSanders on his questionable history in Latin America (including refusal to denounce dictators who were on the left) #DemDebate
3/ Two other overlooked areas @JudyWoodruff @IAmAmnaNawaz @Yamiche @TimAlberta should consider are (i) #housing and the #HOMELESSNESSCRISIS (a big issue here in LA) and reviving #labor rights in the new economy. #DemDebate…

Today’s #employment report was considerably stronger than anticipated, allowing for manufacturing-sector strike activity and with the substantial upward revisions to #job numbers over the past two months. Yet, clearly, employment growth is slowing some.
Still, the demand for #labor exceeds historically moderate levels of new entrants into the workforce, which has helped to bring the #unemployment rate down persistently over the past 10 years, to 3.56% today.
The question now is whether a moderating #employment cycle, alongside of an #economy faced with great uncertainty over the past few months, will see some bottoming and improvement from here, or not?
