  • Dismantling Unjust Structures - Fighting for the Minimum Wage
    nearly twice as likely to remain living in poor neighborhoods compared to poor White families A lot of programs are needed to address poverty including public investments in jobs education and infrastructure But nearly six million workers would be lifted out of poverty if the minimum wage were raised from 7 25 to 10 10 That is big news especially for children who live with parents who earn the minimum wage Helping families afford basic goods such as food When I was 9 years old a loaf of bread averaged 70 cents Tipped workers such as waiters waitresses received 2 13 hour Today at 31 a loaf of bread now costs an average of 2 89 Yet tipped workers still receive 2 13 hour Food prices have nearly risen three fold over the last ten years yet the minimum wage for non tipped workers has only risen by 1 3 rd 5 15 to 7 25 over that same time Now Congress cut nearly 8 billion from SNAP food stamp program These cuts combined with a rather stagnant wage have led to an increased food burden on families who no longer can afford the healthy foods to feed their families Raising wages and tying it to inflation can help families afford healthy food Building opportunities for economic justice Low wages are one of the reasons why income inequality and the racial wealth gap are at record worsts People looking for work often find the fastest growing job opportunities are low skill service sector jobs such as retail food service and home health aides all jobs that are predominantly held by people of color This would not be such a concern if wages kept pace with worker productivity and value But that is not the case If workers were treated with dignity and paid for the value of their labor the minimum wage would be close to 22 per hour and that is much closer to a living wage that we should demand Raising wages both recognizes the value of work and also ensures that workers in the fastest growing occupations won t have to struggle to make ends meet in an unfair economic system So what can we do about it We can use our Ignatian values of contemplative action We can learn and act We can learn There are plenty of resources to learn about the details of raising the wage and what it means for everyday Americans Organizations such as the Jesuit National Advocacy Office Network Lobby Restaurant Opportunities Center Raise the Wage and Institute for Policy Studies have stories facts and details that can help us be more abreast of minimum wage policy We can advocate We can call our Congressperson and state lawmakers to demand that they raise the minimum wage including for tipped workers We can ask they change the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act that exempts over 2 6 million for minimum wage laws such as farmworkers and home healthcare aides so ensure that

  • Immigration: Voices of Faith Respond to House Republican Proposal
    contribute to our economic vitality but live in the shadows As the debate on immigration reform continues we urge the House of Representatives to rethink the increased militarization and egregious overspending on the southern border region and to focus instead on enhancing the transparency and accountability of immigration enforcement The Jesuit Conference of the United States position on immigration reform is available at http bit ly 1bNqnLO The Jesuit Conference of United States will continue to work with our elected officials until just comprehensive and humane immigration reform becomes a reality LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE OF WOMEN RELIGIOUS The Leadership Conference of Women Religious LCWR welcomes the release of the Republican immigration standards and leadership s willingness to engage in immigration reform Achieving just and compassionate immigration reform will require the wisdom and leadership of legislators on both sides of the aisle said Sister Janet Mock CSJ executive director of LCWR We applaud Speaker Boehner s willingness to enter into serious negotiation around one of the most pressing moral issues of our time We are encouraged that the standards acknowledge the special circumstances and extraordinary potential of those brought to the United States as children and hope that legislation crafted in the House will apply to DREAMers broadly and respect the special needs of their families However we are concerned about the implications of many of the other broad principles outline by US House Republican leaders in their statement of standards We are troubled by the prioritization of employment based immigration over family unity Our nation needs immigration reform that reflects the paramount importance and socio economic contribution of families not reform that pits one group of aspiring Americans against another We need not sacrifice our families to meet the needs of our economy In fact ensuring family unity will help us meet our national economic goals While we acknowledge the responsibility of the federal government to secure our borders and enforce the rule of law we believe the best way to protect America is to create a rationale immigration system that respects human rights and border communities reunites families and meets the needs of employers and workers Perhaps most concerning is the failure of the Republican standards to lay out a clear roadmap to citizenship for the approximately 11 million Americans trapped in the shadows by our broken immigration system Our nation cannot abide an immigration law that bars our brothers and sisters from citizenship they are willing to earn and we will not tolerate legislation that consigns members of our community to second class status Sister Janet reaffirmed the pledge made by LCWR at its 2012 assembly We remain committed to seeing just and compassionate immigration reform enacted and look forward to working with Representatives across the political spectrum to ensure that the standards upon which our immigration law is built reflect Catholic social principles and the values of our nation LCWR and its members across the country will continue to press for legislation that protects the dignity and human
