Official rates of employment overlook poorly paid jobs, poverty, inequality 5.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Ed Finn The recent Statistics Canada report that Canada's unemployment rate had dropped to 5.7 per cent , the lowest in four decades, was greeted with great jubilation by politicians, most economists, and the mass media. They welcomed the "good news" that the vast majority of Canadians now have jobs and so presumably are being spared the stress and strain of destitution.    Statistics on their own, however, can be factually misleading, as they certainly are in this case. Unless they are accompanied by other pertinent information -- such as the pay rate and security of an occupation -- they are seriously deficient in the broad inferences they allegedly imply. If you happen to be a doctor, a lawyer, a business executive, a banker, a professor, a high-tech specialist, even an engineer or utilities manager, you have an annual income ranging down from millions of dollars to at least $100,000. Your position is relatively secure and you have no trouble providing your family with a high living standard. But if ...

Why Do Senators Jeanne Shaheen and Todd Young Want to Continue Starving Yemeni Children? 15.3.2018 Truthout.com
A Senate bill that would force a vote on a joint resolution ending the US's unauthorized participation in the Saudi-led war and blockade against Yemen is being challenged by supporters of the Saudi dictatorship. Senators Shaheen and Young have introduced a competing bill in an attempt to drain support from S.J.Res.54, so the US can continue the unauthorized hostilities while Yemeni children starve to death.

(Photo: Mohammed Hamoud / Getty Images) A Senate vote is expected within days on the Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont)-Mike Lee (R-Utah)-Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) bill ( S.J.Res.54 ) ending the US's unauthorized participation in the catastrophic Saudi war in Yemen. Ending US participation will end the war and save millions of Yemenis now living on the brink of famine as a direct and deliberate result of the US-backed Saudi war and the US-backed Saudi blockade of ...

Norway Halts Weapons Sales in Yemen War, Citing Humanitarian Crisis, as US and Britain Continue Supply 4.1.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Norway's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Wednesday the country will stop supplying weapons and ammunition to the United Arab Emirates, citing "great concern" over the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The UAE is part of the Saudi-led coalition that has been carrying out airstrikes in Yemen for nearly three years. Meanwhile, the US and Britain continue to supply the Saudis with billions of dollars' worth of weapons. The US also provides logistical military support to Saudi Arabia. The Saudi air campaign has killed more than 10,000 civilians in Yemen and displaced more than 3 million. More than 80 percent of Yemenis now lack food, fuel, water and access to healthcare. We speak with journalist Iona Craig, who was based in Sana'a from 2010 to 2015 as the Yemen correspondent for The Times of London. She was awarded the 2016 Orwell Prize for her reporting on Yemen. TRANSCRIPT AMY GOODMAN: This is Democracy Now! I'm Amy Goodman, with Nermeen Shaikh. NERMEEN SHAIKH: We turn now to Yemen. On Wednesday, Norway's ...

US Support "Vital" to Saudi Bombing of Yemen, Targeting Food Supplies as Millions Face Famine 14.12.2017 Truthout.com
In Yemen, the US-backed, Saudi-led coalition has bombed a Houthi military police camp, killing at least 30 people, most of whom were imprisoned inside the camp. One official said at least 35 bodies had been recovered from the blast site so far. The Saudi-led coalition has escalated its bombing campaign in recent days, following the killing of former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Days before his death, the longtime leader switched sides in the ongoing war and threw his support behind the Saudi-led coalition. He was then killed by the Houthis. The US-backed, Saudi-led bombing campaign has devastating Yemen's health, water and sanitation systems, sparking a massive cholera epidemic. The Saudi-imposed blockade has prevented critical food, water, medicine and aid from reaching civilians. The United Nations has warned that over 8 million people are "a step away from famine." For more, we're joined by award-winning journalist Iona Craig, journalist who was based in Sana'a from 2010 to 2015 as the Yemen ...

The Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen Is Very Much the Result of a US-Saudi War 10.12.2017 Truthout.com

At least four journalists were killed by airstrikes hit the Yemen's State Satellite Television Station. (Photo: Mohammed Hamoud / Getty Images) Janine Jackson: The enormity of the humanitarian crisis in Yemen is staggering. At least 10,000 people have died in the last two years of Saudi war in the country, already among the poorest in the region. The UN says Yemen faces the worst famine the world has seen for decades, with at least 7 million people in need of immediate food aid. More than a half million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition, and millions more lack access to any healthcare at all. This while Yemen faces an outbreak of cholera that's being called possibly the worst in history. Yet Americans have heard little about what's happening in Yemen, and still less about how it relates to us. Shireen Al-Adeimi is a doctoral ...
