Since Sliced Bread: Common Sense Ideas from American's Working Familiesby Don Stillman (Editor), Earl Dotter (Photographer), Bill Bradley, Andy Stern (Foreword by), Andy Stern
America's working families have been struggling for decades, but the creative, can-do spirit that has served the country well in the past is alive and well, even if it is lacking in so many of our so-called leaders. The Service Employees International Union, known as the most aggressive voice for working Americans, went to the people to find out what's wrong and what can be right in our economy and politics.
The result is a collection of smart, concise, and achievable ideas for solving the big problems that face society, at home and even around the world. These proposals represent paradigm shifts. Their optimism is infectious. It is possible to combat global warming, to provide good quality and affordable healthcare to everyone, to shore up Social Security without give-aways to the finance industry, to promote small-business entrepreneurship, to improve education at all age-levels.
Proposed by regular people from coast to coast and all walks of life, the ideas in Since Sliced Bread are a wake-up call to policy makers and citizens alike that, when the people lead, the leaders will follow.
