 Unprotected Sandy Cleanup Hires Face Health & Safety Threats
with
Joel Shufro, Exec. Dir. NY Committee for Occupational Safety
and Health (“NYCOSH”)
and
Luzdary Giraldo, NYCOSH Community Outreach Organizer

NYCOSH is demanding employers and government agencies
respond to the massive health and safety violations thousands of
cleanup workers face in the wake of Sandy, so as not to repeat
the 911 fiasco which continues to cost the lives of first responders.
Thousands of Sandy workers are facing health and safety hazards
as they cleanup the wreckage, and are forced to work 10 - 12 hour
shifts often without even receiving the minimum wage.

350 Economists Warn Obama and Congress:
Unwise Deficit Reduction Could Kill Recovery.
Economy Needs Growth and Jobs, Not Austerity.
With
. Robert Pollin, Univ. of Massachusetts, Economist and
co-director, Political Economy Research Institute (PERI)
. Teresa Ghirarducci, Director of the Schwartz Center for
Economic Policy Analysis at the The New School

Warning that the U.S. economy is still “marked by mass unemployment,
rising poverty, and declining wages.” 350 prominent economists issued
a statement with the Campaign for America’s Future that, “the fragile
recovery is threatened by obsessive concern with cutting deficits that
has infected both parties.”

The economists’ statement highlighted that drastic spending cuts adopted
in a “grand bargain” aimed at avoiding sequestration could have such a
contractionary impact on the still-fragile economy that the U.S. could join
European countries in plunging into recession as a result of misguided
austerity policies.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
