The other day there was a Kossack who told me that Worker’s Rights were what it (presumably the Democratic Party) all should be about:
My point is that we have taken our focus off the core purpose of the Democratic party by elevating fringe interests above the major problems.
Fringe interests? Aren’t the people on the fringe also workers? Although numbers about the “least of us” are often difficult to uncover, one source lists the unemployment rate for transgender people at 35% and claims that 60% of us earn less that $16K per year. Another source “more generously” claims rather that 40% of us earn less than $20K.
Both are appalling, if you ask me.
Anyway, the truth is that I would much rather be working on issues more central to the human condition, but someone has to stand firm for the people on the fringe.
If not me, who? If not now, when?
There is a simple way to satisfy those of us who are on the fringe. Give us equal rights. Then we can work wholeheartedly on those “more important issues.”
