We’ve terminated pensions, weakened unions, made work more contingent and more precarious. Wal Mart cuts hours to avoid paying for health care. Some elected officials demonize teachers, and public employees, and turn public opinion against any regular worker daring to hope for a higher standard of living.
Kanye has been known to add his own touch to a camel colored Prada suit by adding a bright orange t shirt and a dazzlingly white pair of sneakers. So how does he pull off all these eye catching colors without turning into a fashion “don’t”?
