SDG Target 8.5 & Target Action Plan #1


TAP 1. Achieve full and productive employment at decent work and living wages primarily to implement TAP41 Eradicate all poverty: Ensure everyone has all the necessities of life, a guaranteed living income and everything needed to become self-sufficient until they are self-sufficient and TAP25 Decrease the rate and degree of global warming and mitigate its adverse effects

(Updated December 2, 2016)


 

1.1       Introduction


This plan outline what must be done to achieve full and productive employment for all at meaningful, decent work at living-wages, primarily to implement:

 

1.1.1      TAP41 Eradicate all poverty: Ensure everyone has all the necessities of life and everything needed to become self-sufficient until they are self-sufficient

 

1.1.2      TAP25 Decrease The Rate and Degree of Climate Change and Mitigate its Adverse Effects.


Ultimately, individuals will be able to choose the type work they do, its location and time. Also, mainly sedentary jobs should include some physical labor and mainly physical jobs should include some sedentary work such as typing, filing, educating and training or being educated and trained.


This plan should be coordinated with and provide the workforce for most of the work in the


This will jumpstart the economy, end the recession and avoid a massive worldwide depression.


The current “Great Recession” is still by far the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930's.


There is a tremendous amount of work that must be done and the funds are available to do this work.


The Problem of the Twentieth Century: Poverty in the Midst of Plenty explains how Beecher "businessmen" have kept unemployment, prices, profits and executive salaries high by keeping goods scarce, curtailing production, paying low wages and laying off employees. This keeps many in poverty and debt and provides evermore unemployed workers willing to work for even lower wages.


We must convince these businessmen that to have customers they must pay living wages. Until they do this, the government must hire a massive number of people to do the needed work and prevent the current “Great Recession” from becoming much worse than the “Great Depression” of the 1930's.


The federal government is required by law to create jobs and have full employment by the Federal Reserve Act, international law and the Full Employment and Balanced Growth Act, signed into law in 1978, is “An Act to translate into practical reality the right of all Americans who are able, willing, and seeking to work to full opportunity for useful paid employment at fair rates of compensation” (From the Act’s long title).

  

The Act has four ultimate goals: full employment, growth in production, price stability and balance of trade and budget and states that the federal government will rely primarily on private enterprise to achieve the four goals. The Act expressly provides for measures to create temporary government jobs to reduce unemployment in particular if private enterprise appears not to be meeting these goals. After 38 years private enterprise in particular large corporation have not met these goals.

U.S. Efforts to Help Put the World to Work


The U.S. must cooperate with the other countries. We are not in competition with them. U. S. wars and certain U.S. stockbrokers, bankers, corporation executives and public servants officials caused much of the current conflicts and the worldwide economic crisis. Helping the rest of the world to recovery from the crisis is the right thing to do. Unless the rest of the world does not recover soon, there could be massive starvation, migration and increases in terrorist acts. There should come a time when each large country/area of the globe does most of its own manufacturing and provides most of its own services to its own people.

 

1.4.10    All agencies of the government help other countries, rapidly ramp up to full employment at meaningful work at living wages . Funding for this work could be provided in about the same way as is outlined in the Summary of Funding Sources in particular:

 

1.4.11    Nationalize central banks and Government lend money at low or no interest rates directly to states and small businesses.

 

1.4.12    Enact progressive property taxes on individuals, companies and multi-national corporations.

 

1.4.13    Provide foreign economic aid and development funding instead of military aid and offensive weapons. This funding should be managed by the State Department, Peace Corps and AID not the Department of Defense and as much as possible, benefit the people of the country not the government

 

1.4.14    Strengthen and expand the U.S. Peace Corps and U.S. Agency for International Development (AID).

 

1.4.15    Support and help strengthen and expand the roles and assistance provided by the United Nations, its agencies and peacekeeping teams.

 

1.4.16    U.S. share patents with rest of world with actual inventors not corporations receiving reasonable royalties for the limited Times permitted by the Constitution. Corporations may not own patents. Section 8 of the Constitution states: The Congress shall have Power ... To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.

 

1.4.17    Ultimately each country should in general produces goods for their own markets and nearby countries to decrease transportation costs and pay their employees enough to be customers of the goods they produce.

 

1.4.18    Eliminate all free trade agreements and replace them with fair trade agreements on a case by case basis

 

1.4.19    Reform the World Bank and IMF so that they serve the people, not just bankers, the elite and rich


BACKGROUND


The current “Great Recession” is still by far the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930's.


There is a tremendous amount of work that must be done and the funds are available to do this work.


The Problem of the Twentieth Century: Poverty in the Midst of Plenty explains how Beecher "businessmen" have kept unemployment, prices, profits and executive salaries high by keeping goods scarce, curtailing production, paying low wages and laying off employees. This keeps many in poverty and debt and provides evermore unemployed workers willing to work for even lower wages.


We must convince these businessmen that to have customers they must pay living wages. Until they do this, the government must hire a massive number of people to do the needed work and prevent the current “Great Recession” from becoming much worse than the “Great Depression” of the 1930's.


From Create Jobs - It’s The Law:

 

The federal government is required by law to create jobs. The Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Act, the Federal Reserve Act, and international law require it. A bill now in the House, H.R. 870, would fund job creation as required by Humphrey-Hawkins. If this is not passed, the President legally must instruct the Fed to fund job creation.

 

"When the banks had a national emergency, they bailed them out and they found $700 billion," said Cornel West, during a 9-state Poverty Tour with Tavis Smiley. “When we go to war, we find $1.3 trillion. When the poor and working classes are living in a state of emergency, it's a matter of national security, especially the children. We have 21 percent of our precious children of all colors living in poverty. That's morally obscene in the richest country in the history of the world."
