The Myth Harms Quaility of Lifes

Asking Americans to sign petitions for a New All Inclusive poverty level.
We must speak out to change a huge error. This error reaches into the nook and corners of boston proper as well as the outlaying subrubs, of every American city and village.

Welfare is based on "less than the need." Why? Because we calculated the Need or the Poverty Level wrong!

I am just a folk from Maine working without pay for Justice for All; including the homeless.
Poverty is the number one cause of homelessness.

Being paid less than the need is the real cause of destitution. This has been the normal action of employers through out history. It can end tommorrow, if we no longer accept such pay-rate as good enough.

The US Labor Dept. says 70% of all workers are underpaid. Their figures proudly proclaim are 30% of the working force are paid a (lower than the need) livable wage.This pattern is seen in Welafare and Disability, between 70% and 85% of the population are paid Lower than the cost of the REAL NEED. As: Rent,healthy food, electicrity, transportation, day care, insurances, repairs, clothes,recreation, furniture, utilities as gas, electric, water, sewer, taxes gifts. This leaves us outulace- out in the cold - by design of those in power.

Us Americans must combine our voices say "no more underpaying anyone" do not underpay workers, the disabled, or mothers and children on welfare.

Instead count the real need for the poverty level. Be heard, Sign the petition below:

Every human should be paid the REAL NEED.
