Images of the Border Crisis in the United States.
AATTP

An estimated 52,000 unaccompanied children have entered the United States from Central America since October. President Barack Obama has asked Congress for $3.7B to improve security along the border, provide better housing for the undocumented immigrants while in custody and to speed up the deportation process. 

Despite the horrible conditions these children are attempting to escape, conditions that include extreme poverty and violence, the White House has said that “they expect most will ultimately be repatriated,” despite the fact that about 60% of children coming over from Central America are eligible for some kind of humanitarian protection, according to a report from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

While the problem before us must be handled immediately, it cannot be addressed without first examining it’s root causes. While our American elected officials and media would like to make us all believe that this issue is unrelated to American behavior and that it is simply the result of the inability of Central American countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to protect their borders and reduce through policing their crime the truth is quite the opposite. This immigration issue that the United States is currently facing is the result of American economic and military intervention in Central America.

For decades the United States has toppled governments in Central America, fueled civil wars and most recently has escalated the War on Drugs within countries in Central America. The connection between the United States foreign policy and it’s current immigration problem cannot be ignored, every action has an effect and due to the actions taken by the United States in the past, we today see families from all over Central America attempt to flee the violence that the United States was instrumental in creating.

For those not from Massachusetts, the fight for control of Market Basket stores is actually really important for any and all proponents of fair wages for all workers.

Why? This article spells it out, but here’s a rundown if you’re short on time:

  • Market Basket is a Massachusetts chain of supermarkets much beloved for its combination of low prices and fair treatment of employees.
  • For example, while Massachusetts only recently passed a law that will raise the minimum wage to $11 per hour by 2017, Market Basket already pays employees a starting salary of $12 per hour, with full benefits, a profit-sharing plan, and a guaranteed annual raise.
  • Market Basket also sells groceries at prices 10-20 percent cheaper than its local rivals, which can be essential for low-income households. 
  • Recently, in a feud for control of the company, their former CEO, Arthur T. Demoulas, was ousted by the company’s managing board, in favor of his cousin, Arthur S. Demoulas. In a nutshell, Arthur T. was the kind of guy who would pay millions out of pocket to make sure his employees got every penny of their profit share when the 2008 recession hit. Arthur S., on the other hand, feels that Market Basket’s shareholders deserve a bigger cut of the profits.
  • In other words, Market Basket is in the process of being highjacked by rich people who want to get richer.

So why should this matter to you?

Because Market Basket is a textbook example of how a company can be run in a way that lets everyone win. By selling low-price groceries while paying living wages to all of its employees and still turning a profit, Market Basket proves that the minimum wage absolutely doesn’t force companies to raise food prices. Not unless, of course, their CEOs are focused entirely on getting as rich as possible.

The fight over Market Basket proves that people who truly stand to lose from raising the minimum wage are those who already make the most money and want to continually take a bigger cut, at everyone else’s expense. Soon, Market Basket may no longer continue to provide low-cost food for its millions of customers, or fair wages and benefits for its 25,000 employees. Not unless Arthur T. gets his job back.

Which is my Market Basket’s employees have gone on strike, refusing to stock shelves and urging customers to shop elsewhere until Arthur T. regains control.

Have you ever seen employees lead a boycott of their own company to get a CEO his job back? That, I think, spells out better than anything what is at stake here.

I’ve been watching this happen and it’s the coolest thing. I really hope it works.

The real problem with books-turned-movies isn’t “omg they didn’t include every single word in the book” it’s “omg they completely overlooked the main theme, threw out any significant allegories, took away all the emotional pull, an turned it into a boring action movie with a love triangle in it”

MAINSTREAM MEDIA WILL SAY THAT THE PROTESTERS STARTED THE VIOLENCE ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THIS IS NOT THE CASE AS PROVEN BY THE VIDEO ABOVE.

please watch this before its taken down

I feel like the scariest thing about this is that so much of what we know about the situation has only been made possible by social media. It makes you appreciate how easy it was in the past for them to successfully sweep things like this under the rug because people didn’t have an outlet to show the situation from their side.
