The March is On

December 5, 2013

This week, President Obama delivered an address, starting a dialogue on how the long path to America’s current level of inequality has led us to the wrong place.  The president said that Americans’ frustration with Washington is, “rooted in the nagging sense that no matter how hard they work, the deck is stacked against them.”  His timing coincided with the nationwide spread of strikes by fast food workers, showing they cannot wait for Washington to act on raising minimum wages.  Unfortunately, the day also saw the loss of Nelson Mandela, a world class standard bearer for justice.  The passing of Mandela is a time to reflect on how the world can change if people just stand up, eventually justice wins out.
