Black Lives Matter

Racial Justice is not a zero-sum game. When justice rises for any citizen - we all benefit. When justice fails any citizen - we all lose.

Mr. President, we are not anarchists. We are peaceful patriots who love and support our brothers and sisters in the Black Community. We recognize where systemic racism exists. And we recognize we all need to stand together for what is right. We need policy changes not ‘domination’. These changes should include police policy reform, mass incarceration addressed, education policy, and more.

I condemn the after-hour violence the media highlights. But this is not the movement, and this violence will NOT be quelled by more violence – especially state-sanctioned violence.

We are reaching a dangerous point. We need leadership.

Governors, Mayors – this is your time to stand up. Lead.

Sheriffs, Police Chiefs, and Commissioners -- this is your time. Please show protect & serve – ALL citizens. Show compassion and love, not power, and might.

Business Leaders – leverage your access and privilege.

Military Leaders – remember you exist to fight FOR us, you ARE us.

Let’s all act now to strive to contain state violence and advance dialogue for meaningful change.

I commit to working for change. I recognize that ‘all lives matter’ can't be true until BLACK LIVES MATTER. And so I march with the Black Community. I march for the Black Community. I march for our nation – one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice FOR ALL! #BlackLivesMatter #StrongerTogether

I hate that no one sees past the name of this movement Black Lives Matter. The second that term hit the media it completely undermined its cause. It created a dichotomy between itself and anything else anything else that mattered. No one talks about social justice or injustices to minorities or urban areas because no one can get past arguing about the name and staying “why don’t my life matter?” “Dog and Cats Matter” ..An entire county was offended just because some said “black lives matter” ..I’m pretty sure no one meant other lives were didn’t matter but that’s how it was taken. It’s still going strong to keep every deflected from that cause. No one can see it without pointing out how another life matters. It’s so sad. Just let them let their lives matter, scroll on and be happy your live matters too. It wasn’t meant to say other lives didn’t matter. Lord let us move on from this. Please. I swear the sign said “Black Lives Matter” but i have thought of looking again because the majority of Americans read it as “Only Black Lives Matter” or maybe I missed the back of the original sign which read “...and yours doesn’t.” ...If you care about this the social justice or injustices to anyone anywhere you should never post anything with “...Lives Matter” after it ever. Even when used by those who feel they are using it to be positive or show you don’t believe in racism it falls so short of even that point. I can’t think of another statement more used to misrepresented and undermine its cause than this.

Another reason we like Amazon

Jobcase helps over thousands of people every year get jobs and careers at Amazon. We applauded a couple years ago when they raised min hourly pay to $15/hour, and we likewise applaud their upskilling efforts. Here’s a good - quick- article on it. Good read and important read for any of their employees! #Amazon #upskilling #StrongerTogether https://www.stradaeducation.org/uncategorized/what-role-should-employers-play-in-postsecondary-education/?utm_content=135175838&utm_medium=social&utm_source=linkedin&hss_channel=lcp-61414

Getting some fuel to Help Jobcasers!

Jobcase Inc. announced 3 things today. 1) we had an investor buy out a controlling shareholder, 2) we raised some money for growth, and 3) Workday forged a partnership with Jobcase. Here’s why we think this is great news for you:

Punchline: Jobcase’s mission is to empower workers. This has never seemed more urgent than while we face double-digit unemployment where once again those of us who face the most adversity in the best of times are taking the hardest hits in the toughest of times. We need to do better to help one another. Jobcase was built as a place where people help people. So we realized Jobcase needs to do better for you – so we went to find partners who can help us do just that.

Background: What does empowering workers’ mean for you: we want to make it easy for you to have a better tomorrow. We want to provide tools, that make moving around, getting training, getting new jobs easy and successful (and at the moment, hopefully FAST too). We want to support a community platform where strangers love and support each other to figure out that next step, that current problem. With tools and community – the trends that can be daunting for future-of-work can actually be harnessed to help you have an AWESOME future. But its gonna take some effort. No one is in a corner office doing it for you anymore. And few of us have been trained to figure it out ourselves (plus it can be exhausting). But Jobcase is building a platform to make it easy – even fun – and supportive. #StrongerTogether !

Ok – now the announcement.

Part 1: Our new big shareholder LOVES the idea of empowering workers. When I first met them, I knew that the leader was actively supporting veterans in the southwest, and I then learned he and PSG were saving entire villages in Africa with better irrigation and building housing that can protect from wandering rebels that threaten family security, etc. My point – these shareholders walk the walk on caring about people and part of the reason they are investing in Jobcase is they know we do too. And they get that now more than ever we need to support workers. #StrongerTogether!

Part 2: We need to make your experience better. We need to get more relevant communication to you, and we need it to be easier for you to keep your stuff – resume, profile, reviews, training certifications, etc. We need new tools for you – like radars for what opportunities you might not be considering that are open to you with just 1 course, or 1 training module. We need your profile/reviews/records to be easily maintained and updated to show your best self and then make sure it's easy for you to send anywhere you want – employers, schools, even jobcase competitors -it's YOUR data. You should keep it here and be able to freely send it anywhere you choose - and easily. In short – we have a lot more work to do on the product to serve you in the way you deserve. That takes money. We just got some. We are gonna spend it on tools and community building to help you! #StrongerTogether!

Part 3: Workday. Workday is a company that powers the HR and people functions of almost all the biggest companies in the US. They are large, they are very well run, and they are wonderful people who fell in love with our mission of empowering workers. And the cool news is that so many of their employer clients want to help too. The Business Roundtable talked about the importance of Stakeholders – not just shareholders. Bank of America’s CEO just last quarter allocated 1 billion dollars (yes Billion) to help with racial inequality in local communities alone. Target is increasing pay for all hourly workers. Momentum is building on worker advocacy and we strongly believe with Workday we can advocate for workers more effectively, can accelerate making it easier for you to apply and get hired by the 1000 biggest companies in the USA and can help employers flourish as well. It’s an exciting partnership that benefits first – you, second -employers who ‘get’ workers-value. We’ve never had a partner like this and we think it can be wonderful for our members. #StrongerTogether.

So, congrats Jobcasers. Jobcase Inc. employs 158 people headquartered 2 blocks from MIT leveraging cutting edge tech to help you navigate a better tomorrow by managing your own future of work better. We just got a huge shot in the arm that should strengthen our ability to serve you better. It might not be overnight -but you should see a steady drumbeat (and occasional step functions) of cooler tools, better-run communities, more relevant communication, and easier access to great employers. The next 12 months should be transformative. WE are so appreciative of your being part of this community. Of your being on Jobcase. And now we have new funding and partnerships to serve you better. With unemployment in doubledigits it's just in time.

We can all have a better tomorrow. It will be easier if we help one another. Jobcase just got partners and funding to build a platform that will do just that. Congratulations. And Stay tuned for what comes next!

"We need to do better to help one another." This is why I, and so many of my colleagues, work at Jobcase. The mission at this company is about being that support to our neighbors- about striving every day to find more and better ways to empower all of us to support each other, across communities, regions, and the entire world. There is an unbelievable amount of generosity and neighborly support in our country- people who would help others, if only the opportunity was there and the way was clear. I'm proud to work with a team that's opening access to that opportunity and smoothing that way, for everyone.

Who do we want to be?

Historian Jon Meacham has said "In this convulsive moment, let's not say: 'This isn't who we are.' Rather let's use this as a moment to ask who do we want to be?"

Some companies are taking the right steps by taking the following actions:

  • SoftBank COO Marcelo Claure will create a $100 million fund that "will only invest in companies led by founders and entrepreneurs of color". Softbank has backed companies including

Motivational Monday

If you are needing a little motivation this morning - take a look at this video. The Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern is calm, cool, and collected as she continues with her live interview during an earthquake which measured 5.6. I hope this gives you the courage and strength to carry on during this difficult time.

First off...here's my op-ed and what I can say on the matter in short....The SARS CoV-1 aka CoronaVirus is destroyed by colloidal or nano-particle silver.. They've known this since 2003. Over 100 research reports confirm this. Now...This 'novel' strain...ie. nCov2 was brought about at a Level4 lab in Wuhan,China. The Chief virologist there...Dr Shi Z. Li, was contracted to research and collect the corona virus from the horseshoe bat and prepare it for the next phase, pending. A second payment of $3.7mil was reportedly initiated by the Institute of Allergies and infectious Diseases, via one, Dr Anthony Fauci, with the blessings of the NIH and likely the knowledge of the WHO. The second phase of the research was to insure the corona virus samples were to be able to transfer to human beings and infect the human respiratory system, which was the stated goal, per reports. Dr Fauci was reportedly warned about the dangers involved, if this novel 'variant' of the corona virus were to escape the lab. As we all know, It did and here we are chasing our tails. Dr Fauci in the months after and shortly after President Trump became President, warned in a public interview, that President Trump would have to deal with a Pandemic during his administration. I find this very interesting, to say the least. How would he have known, unless......?
This 'novel form' of the original Corona virus is likely destroyed by micro or nano-particle colloidal silver as well. This virus has roots and is found in felines, and other animals around the world. In fact, the Corona Virus is patented. Its patented in the UK.. just as Ebola is patented by the US. Reportedly, No one can work on these patented microbes, unless they deal with the patent holders first. They control all aspects and any further developments or work done with them, by third parties. As for this lab developed 'novel' form of the Corona virus and, will it change...? I suppose, It depends on which Experts you talk to. It may be around a while like the influenza bug or it could peter-out or it could become more potent IF, someone in a lab somewhere, starts playing with it again, creating a more powerful strain. Right now, it can be controlled & Killed with a long known and powerful anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasite natural product...Colloidal Silver. The powers that be cannot make any real money on a this natural mineral, and so, all the money bets are on a lab made vaccine, which will make the Drug companies BILLIONS and hopefully, they won't force it on us, as some suspect they will. There lies the real potential danger in my opinion. That's my unprofessional take on it and whatever source of this, may 'otherwise' be, I and millions of others remain very angry and suspicious of how this pandemic is being handled to date. The Medical Establishments handling of this, doesn't pass the smell test and certain MDs and researchers need to be investigated. Millions have lost their livelihoods, jobs and thousands of have lost their lives to this lab created bug and the Public wants answers and heads to roll, per my observations. Governors and their minions mistakes are only compounding the problems The public's fuse is getting very short, with their Rights Being Violated on a regular basis. Semper Paratus.

Two economies - you are not alone

It’s weird to see the news talk about “v shaped recoveries” and nasdaq new highs when we know this article reflects much closer what’s happening in real economy. It sure seems their are two different economies right now. Investor class doing pretty well, non investors... not so much. Good news is that if you are struggling, hang in there. You are not alone. & Lots of orgs like Jobcase are trying to figure out new ways to help. We’ll keep surfacing them here #StrongerTogether
