Good Thursday 6 December, 2012. Thanks for listening, participating, and ENGAGING w/ IDECLAIR MEDIA, THE IDECLAIR SHOW…
>>We study a recent & powerful study re: The impact on Americas youth whose parents are low wage workers. Millions live this reality, and now there is official documentation on the serious and multifaceted impacts of long term low wage living.
>>Corporate profits are to the moon, the numbers are unprecedented, meanwhile American worker wages are through the floor. If Americans do not stand up and push back on the obvious trend… all bets are off.
>>Why has the ‘fiscal cliff’ argument been allowed to be argued on such shallow terms, when the obvious solution is right before us. Americans pay sales taxes on all sorts of transactions, yet Wall Street financial transactions are not taxed?

“Millions of Youth Put at Risk By Parents’ Low-Wage Jobs”
November 26, 2012
“Center for Social Policy”
“With two of every three new jobs in the U.S. over the next decade projected to be low-paying, today professors at Boston College and the University of Massachusetts Boston released the first study to examine the effect these jobs have on a previously unexamined group: youth. Approximately 16 million U.S. families are headed by parents working low-wage jobs, and the new study finds that low-quality jobs are taking a harmful, far-reaching toll on the children of parents who work them – triggering higher dropout rates and obesity among adolescents, and prolonging poverty.”
