Why Are We Still Having to Fight for Workers’ Rights?

Description

The fact that workers should be paid a living wage has been declared in Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Amos, Hosea, and by modern prophets such as Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Martin Luther King, Jr. and hosts of others. That the biblical words of the prophets and even the pleadings of modern presidents continues to be a vision but not a visible reality is a vital claim laid at the feet of the modern church. Politicians and corporations will not do the right thing for workers until people of conscience make it clear that we will tolerate nothing less.
