Pregnancy isn’t fair. It only happens in women and not always when they want it. My conservative friends are talking to their screens right now, explaining that Sex is only for reproduction and any woman who doesn’t want a baby should not be having sex. Unfairly, they are not saying the same thing about men.Continue reading “Abortion , Birth Control , Poverty, Homelessness”

Social Work is Really Paperwork

There are days when no one comes in to the office for a meeting with me. There are no days that I have nothing going on schedule. 70% of social work is really paperwork : filing , sorting , mailing, faxes, emails… .

How do we create more jobs. Real jobs. Real pay. Do we bring back all the outsourced jobs orContinue reading “Who Earns Minimum Wage”
