Bringing Food Justice to Trader Joe's

VIDEO

Laura Flanders, GRITtv: "Trader Joe's is one of a batch of new corporations wrapping their push for profits in feel-good green slogans and promises of fair labor practices. But at least a few of their products aren't coming from fair labor at all."

US Soldiers' Mission Showcases Afghan War's Hopelessness

Dion Nissenbaum, McClatchy Newspapers: "After months of deadly and often demoralizing fighting alongside mediocre Afghan forces in one of the Taliban's most intractable strongholds outside Kandahar city, the Americans in this Army company are asking themselves if it had been worth it. 'I'm ready to get out of here,' said Sgt. Joshua Middlebrook, 25, of Sanford, N.C., as the patrol made its way back to base after coming up dry in the search. 'I'm tired of picking up body parts.'"

Zusatzbeitrag: Wer nicht zahlt, wird sanktioniert

Bundesgesundheitsminister will "Sozialausgleich" streichen, wenn Betroffene den Zusatzbeitrag bei den Krankenkassen nicht entrichten.

Immer mehr gesetzliche Krankenkassen erheben Zusatzbeiträge von ihren Versicherten. Immer mehr Krankenversicherte verweigern auch die Zahlung der zusätzlichen Beiträge. Viele Menschen können sich allerdings den Zusatzbeitrag auch nicht leisten. Denn für Hartz IV Bezieher werden beispielswiese die zusätzlich erhobenen Zusatzbeiträge von den Arbeitsagenturen nicht übernommen. Lesen Sie den ganzen Artikel:

Hartz IV: Bereichert sich die "Diakonischen Servicegesellschaft Kästorf GmbH" an der Arbeit von Ein-Euro-Jobbern?

Schon im März diesen Jahres wurde ein unglaublicher Skandal aufgedeckt: Die gemeinnützige AWO Service GmbH Neumünster hatte Hartz IV Bezieher als Reinigungskräfte bei Pflegebedürftigen eingesetzt und die Tätigkeit gerade einmal mit 1,50 Euro pro Stunde entlohnt. Die AWO selbst hatte jedoch 8 Euro für den Servicedienst verlangt und noch einmal 200 Euro sog. "Regiegeld" pro Monat von der Arbeitsagentur erhalten. Nach dem der Fall öffentlich wurde, gab die AWO Neumünster nach und stellte diese Art von Dumpinglohn und Beschäftigung ein. Lesen Sie weiter:

Ursula von der Leyens Hartz IV Gutschein-Lügen: Bundesarbeitsministerin Ursula von Leyen: Das Chip-Karten Gutschein Modell würde erfolgreich in Schweden eingesetzt werden. Die Kinder würden das System "cool" finden, nur in Schweden existiert ein solches System nicht.

Wie so oft will Bundesarbeitsministerin Ursula von der Leyen (CDU) Hartz IV Ungerechtigkeiten als "tolle neue Reformen" präsentieren. Dabei hilft ihr auch eine Agentur, die von Steuergeldern bezahlt wird. Der neuste Clou: Eine Vielzahl von Politikern argumentieren gern mit dem Vorbild Schweden. Dort sei sowieso alles besser und man könnte von dem Nordeuropäern einiges lernen. Ebenso argumentiert auch die Arbeitsministerin von der Leyen. In Schweden gebe es im Sozialsystem ein sogenanntes Chipkarten-System, mit dem Nachhilfestunden oder Musikunterricht per Chip-Karte bezahlt werden könnten. Von der Leyen will damit ein erneutes Argument gegen die Erhöhung der ALG II Regelsätze für Kinder liefern. Statt dessen sollen Gutscheine für den Extra-Bedarf ausgegeben werden. Das Hauptargument der Ministerin lautet, das Geld würde ansonsten "nicht bei den Kindern ankommen", da nach Meinung der CDU-Politikerin sinngemäß Eltern im ALG II Bezug schlechtere Eltern seien, als andere.

Why no rush to aid Pakistan? Russia, Pakistan Show Need for Climate Action

The images are devastating, as are the numbers. The floods in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, by now reaching as far south as the Punjab, have affected more people than all major natural disasters in the past six years combined. Some 14 million people - 2 million displaced - and 300,000 homes have been hit, with 1,600 fatalities so far.

Errant climate may be sign of breakdown, scientists say

Floods, fires, melting ice, and feverish heat - from smoke-choked Moscow to water-soaked Iowa and the High Arctic, the planet seems to be having a midsummer breakdown. It is not just a portent of things to come, scientists say, but a sign of troubling climate change already under way.

Countdown to Collapse: The Recovery is Not Recovering

America's Biggest Jobs Program Is the US Military

Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: "America's biggest - and only major - jobs program is the U.S. military. Over 1,400,000 Americans are now on active duty; another 833,000 are in the reserves, many full time. Another 1,600,000 Americans work in companies that supply the military with everything from weapons to utensils.... If we didn't have this giant military jobs program, the U.S. unemployment rate would be over 11.5 percent today instead of 9.5 percent."
