Sustainable Labor is down with Alexandra Bradbury from Labor Notes. She suggests that we find innovative ways to lower the cost of living.
“We wouldn’t need to work so hard if the rent (and mortgages) weren’t so damn high. If transit were free, and frequent enough. If we had free health care and higher education.
Sound utopian? It shouldn’t. Take the federal money already going to higher ed in loans and grants, hand it straight to public universities instead—and you could have free tuition for all, tomorrow. Same with health care: single-payer would cost less than we already spend on our dysfunctional private system.”
WE agree. Read the rest of her thoughtful piece at Labor Notes.
