Brian Moore on Jobs

Socialist nominee for President


Unemployment compensation at 100% of previous income

We call for an increased and expanded welfare assistance program and unemployment compensation at 100% of a worker's previous income or the minimum wage for the full period of unemployment or re-training.

30-hour work week with 6-weeks annual paid vacation

We call for a 30-hour work week, six weeks annual paid vacation, right of all workers to form a union and the right of public sector workers to strike. We also call for the repeal of all "right-to-work" laws, the same provision of employee benefits for part-time worker as for full-time workers and creation of a fund to pay full wages for education and retraining if a worker losses his/her job.

Militant labor action for social ownership of production

We support militant labor action, boycotts, sympathy strikes, sit-down and general strikes and the expropriation of the workplace. We ultimately support the right of all workers to organize for worker control of industry and social ownership of the means of production and distribution.

Set minimum wage of $15 per hour and index upward

We call for worker and community ownership and control of corporations within a decentralized and democratically determined economic plan. Until we reach our goal, we call for a minimum wage of $15 per hour, indexed to the cost of living, a full employment policy with a guaranteed annual income and withdrawal from all free trade agreements.
