Can technology prevent another Ferguson?

Police Cameras.

In my home town of St. Louis, a petition has gained traction calling for police to wear body cameras that capture everything in front of them while they are doing their jobs. This would be just a step beyond the idea of putting dashboard cameras on all police cars, which s

More Workers Are Claiming ‘Wage Theft’

Wage Theft.

Week after week, Guadalupe Rangel worked seven days straight, sometimes 11 hours a day, unloading dining room sets, trampolines, television stands and other imports from Asia that would soon be shipped to Walmart stores.

The White House Is Spoiling for a Fight on Immigration

White House and Immigration Fight.

The White House appears to be moving full-speed ahead on an executive order that would provide widespread protection to illegal immigrants from deportation, Republicans—and maybe some Democrats—be damned. Those close to the process expect an order in the first few weeks of

Incumbents Likely To Be Re-elected To Congress Despite Voter Discontent

Florida Voters.

A surly electorate that holds Congress in even lower regard than unpopular President Barack Obama is willing to "keep the bums in," with at least 365 incumbents in the 435-member House and 18 of 28 senators on a glide path to another term when ballots are counted Nov. 4.

Latino Workers And The Future of Labor

Can technology prevent another Ferguson?

In my home town of St. Louis, a petition has gained traction calling for police to wear body cameras that capture everything in front of them while they are doing their jobs. This would be just a step beyond the idea of putting dashboard cameras on all police cars, which some police agencies around the country have started doing. The reasoning goes that with these cameras, we might deter police misconduct and get better answers...

More Workers Are Claiming ‘Wage Theft’

Week after week, Guadalupe Rangel worked seven days straight, sometimes 11 hours a day, unloading dining room sets, trampolines, television stands and other imports from Asia that would soon be shipped to Walmart stores. Even though he often clocked 70 hours a week at the Schneider warehouse here, he was never paid time-and-a-half overtime, he said.

The White House Is Spoiling for a Fight on Immigration

The White House appears to be moving full-speed ahead on an executive order that would provide widespread protection to illegal immigrants from deportation, Republicans—and maybe some Democrats—be damned. Those close to the process expect an order in the first few weeks of September—and expect it, in the words of one immigration advocate, to be "significant." White House aides stress that nothing has been finalized. Yet the administration's posture has been one of anticipating—even inviting—a highly public...

Latino Workers And The Future of Labor

As the nation celebrates Labor Day, Latino officials and labor leaders state Hispanics increasingly represent the workforce of the future – as well as the future of the labor movement. U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez believes that the best way to honor workers on Labor Day is to give them a raise. “President Obama’s opportunity agenda is about rewarding hard work with a fair wage,” he said. “That’s why we’ve fought so hard for...

Choices: We make them every day, every second. We choose what to wear, whom we affiliate with, how we act and react. Most people don’t seem to realize it, but where you are in your life as a young adult is no longer from the trickle effect of the hand that you were dealt as a child.
