Workers be put at forefront of COVID-19 recovery

From In These Times: May 8, 2020.

As democratic socialist elected officials from across the country, now more than ever, we’re fighting for a world in which human life is valued above profit. As the Covid-19 crisis has spread, at home and abroad, we’ve seen governments slow to invest in healthcare and hospitals, but quick to open up their wallets to bail out large corporations — just as before the pandemic.[1]

Signatories included Joel Sipress 2nd District Duluth (MN) City Councilor.[2]
