This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

Looking forward to hearing more about how support for the poorest in our society should change following our #Coronavirus pandemic recovery #IfGCasey
Baroness Casey opens saying this webinar is timely as it is the first time since 2010 that Govt is considering new taxes to fund #SocialCare services. Says pandemic "has exposed the cracks" in our public services #IfGCasey
Casey also notes that the pandemic has exposed the inequalities in our society and, in particular, the #HealthInequalities that are experienced by those who experience poverty, all of which have been exacerbated by the pandemic #IfGCasey

2/n A SNAP Judgment with Little Thought

An explanation of the costly effects of increased dependence on govt instead of earning independence & depending more on family, friends, and civil society that will give you a hand up rather than a handout.

3/n A “Vehicle Miles Traveled” Tax is a Bad Idea

The new VMT tax is a part of the “infrastructure” bill by #Congress and is just another way to socially engineer people’s behavior while growing the federal govt.

Just say no!

Considerazioni geopolitiche
Gli #StatiUniti ripiegati su se stessi.
Da anni insofferenti al loro ruolo di "poliziotti del mondo", chiudono un'era nel peggiore dei modi, con una disfatta che ora brucia agli Americani stessi (e a noi).

#Americaisback di #Biden più che ⤵️
Un ritorno sulla scena sembra ora un ritorno a un passato isolazionista.
Da #Americafirst ad #Americaalone

Abbiamo contestato il suo #imperialismo armato, la sua grossolana presenza negli #scenari globali, una certa ignoranza e prepotenza diplomatica, il modo semplicistico ⤵️
di dividere il mondo in buoni e cattivi, con loro nella parte dei buoni ovviamente.

Ma siamo tutti intrisi di cultura americana, dal jazz al rock alle sneakers, dalla Coca ai jeans, da Warhol alla letteratura, da un certo edonismo consumistico che abbiamo assorbito.

In exactly one month, I'll be leaving Bertelsmann Stiftung and start a new challenge. But before I leave, I would like to (re-)share some of the highlights of my work over the last five years. So join me for a little time travel and lots of still relevant research!
When I joined @GED_Tweet in 2016, the #trade world seemed still ok: the WTO still had the Appellate Body, TTIP was a political priority, Brexit had not happened and Trump was still an unlikely presidential candidate. Lots was going to change...
One of my core projects was research on public opinion and #trade. Our first publication was triggered by the intensifying debate on TTIP in Germany - but went beyond that: bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/publication…

There’s so much happening in 🌍 right now - including many tragedies - but farmers are asking you to lend your support to the campaign to protect 🇬🇧 food standards from being undercut in future trade deals.

Here’s why this is important & why you should care [1] Image
British #farmers produce your food to some of the highest standards of animal #welfare, environmental #sustainability & #safety in the 🌍

Many of these are 🇪🇺 standards. With #Brexit we are now free to alter them. But what does this mean? [2]
So domestic production standards are set to rise even higher, which is great (who doesn’t want quality?)

But govt looks set to conclude new trade deals with countries such as 🇺🇸 which would allow food imports which it would be illegal to produce here [3]

With only a few days to go before the most comprehensive #lockdown announced by GoI comes to an end, participated in a VC with Hon PM to discuss the exit strategy to deal with fallout from #COVIDー19 Crisis & ways to kick start the #economy. Made the following suggestions.(1/n)
1. TESTING: Use Rapid test kits to segregate the people into red, yellow & green zones. Empowering employers to test their workforce, will reduce the burden on Govt and create green zones of productivity and help get economy back on track. (2/n)
2. #supplychain: They are extremely important to get the economy moving even in a partial manner. Allowing trucks to #transport goods and other #materials is vital for the #economy. The Govt might also consider ensuring Road side facilities for the drivers' #welfare. (3/n)

#IndiaEcon Pandemic is creating a huge, natural, short-medium term(1-2 yr) opportunity for Self Sufficiency. #India could use this opportunity to make push for #Indigenization by #Accelerating #EconomicReforms to reduce #Bureaucratization (#BS). But who will bell the cat? 😢😢😢
2/econ We have to focus in an integrated way on the #Threat from crisis (👇🏼) and the #Opportunity (👆🏼), so as to minimize the negative effect of crises and maximize the positive benefits possible from the fallout.
3/econ Union+State govts should urgently create #Register of self-employed people (& contact workers), in Service industries connected to Tourism, Travel, Trade, Retail, Resteraunts, Hotels. Real Estate, Entertainment, containing their #Aadhar, #VoterIdNo & #MobileNo & workplace

A positive thread on the need for #aspiration for the #future of our #food & #farming industry...

🚜 🐓 🐄 🐑 🍎 🥦 🌾 🌳 🐝

[1/9] Image
FARMERS 👩‍🌾

We’ve a lot to be #proud of in 🇬🇧 - but we can #aspire to #better.

More productive. More tech-savvy. More collaborative. More environmentally proactive.

Change is coming. We have to embrace it & lead the #change. Consumers respect us - that’s a big asset ✅

[2/9] Image
FARMERS, II 👩‍🌾

With #NetZero we have to step up. It will be difficult; hard decisions will have to be made. But we must show #leadership.

We can’t complain about the consequences of #ClimateChange if we don’t play our part.

And only Ag can act as a carbon sink 💨 🌱

The National Commission for Enterprises in the #UnorganisedSector was set up in 2004 as an advisory body & a watchdog for the #informal sector. This NCEUS report reviews #labour #laws & #SocialSecurity systems that apply to #workers in unorganised sectors. bit.ly/2PhAOEN ImageImageImageImage
It observes that while existing laws have some provisions for conditions of #work for certain workers, there is no comprehensive legal framework for the “basic and minimum conditions of work” for unorganised sector workers.
Therefore, it proposes comprehensive & protective laws for agricultural & non-agricultural workers in the unorganised sector that will regulate conditions of #work, #SocialSecurity, #welfare and #livehood promotion.

THREAD.
1/ To the Republicans in my network, respectfully...

The 400 wealthiest Americans paid lower tax rates in 2018 than any other income group for the first time in history.

The average pay increase for the rest of us was about 3%.
2/ Are you one of those 400? Has that wealth trickled down? Were you able to utilize the private jet deduction? Are your tax cuts permanent?
3/ Or are you in the pile with the rest of us, celebrating a $30 per week raise while factories close down and workers strike and farms go bankrupt and consumer prices go up...

Named after #MahatmaGandhi, the #MGNREGA, one of the largest #publicworks programme in the world, came about because of inadequate govt schemes that weren't meeting the demand for #rural #employment. ruralindiaonline.org/library/resour… Image
Recognizing there was persistent #unemployment in rural areas – and no #SocialSecurity mechanism for the #poor, the #MGNREGA aims to provide #wage #employment to poor #rural households, strengthen rural #livelihoods, and ensure #socialinclusion. #GandhiAt150
The Act guarantees that state govts will set up schemes to provide no less than 100 days of #employment in one financial year to every rural household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual #work.

My mother was seeking #employment & arranged an appointment with #OfficeAngels who she was already registered with & had worked for, for years. However, the time & date of the appointment was at a similar time to that of her sign on with the #DWP. #Jobseekersallowance #Jobseekers

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the ☀️📚📝 #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over 🇪🇺 with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 📖
