VIEWS ON IMPORTANT ARIZONA TOPICS
JOBS & JOB QUALITY
My allegiance is to the citizens of Arizona that are here today. I want each of our people today to have an opportunity for the American Dream. I want you to rise to whatever social and financial level that you are willing to work for. For the benefit of all, I want our current citizens to be employed in high-paying not low-paying jobs.
“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be” Thomas Jefferson
Sending our children into this world with a strong back, weak mind and no comprehension of achievement is perhaps the most severe form of child abuse.
The Civic Force will be essentially a directory and placement service for volunteers. Those volunteers will be available to individual schools, cities, community outreach organizations, food banks, recreation programs, etc. In other words, any legitimate group that serves a community need.
We have a moral obligation to assist our fellow citizens who do not have the ability to protect and care for themselves. That includes children, at-risk seniors and those not blessed with a sound body or mind. Further, any of us may have an unfortunate desperate situation that could be stabilized with some very-temporary help. Otherwise, we are obligated to care for ourselves.
It is essential for many reasons that working-age Arizonans support themselves and their dependents. Further, it is necessary that they be compensated with a wage commensurate with their service to their employers. Those that do not work or work at below-market wages end up being subsidized by the remainder of us to our economic peril.
