THE WASHINGTON FRONT... [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 August 1977
THE WASHINGTON FRONT... August in Washington is a time of exodus. The legislators have all gone home to their constituents. The Supreme Court is in recess and the President has escaped to Plains for a few days. Anyone with sense has managed to find a way to flee the heat of the capital. One of the more notable developments on the Washington front was Carter's announcement of his welfare proposals. During his campaign he said that he was determined to reform the welfare system without raising its cost. Briefly, it seemed that the Department of Health, Education and Welfare was going to supplement its budget by cashing out Housing and Urban Development's housing subsidy and counting this amount as part of welfare payments. The plan was quickky shelved after protests emerged from a wide range of groups. The only one benefitting from this plan would have been HEW's budget. Carter's plan is a good, if not entirely clear, approach to reform. Though payments would still fall below Federal ...
J. P. Stevens [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 August 1977
J. P. Stevens The J. P. Stevens Company's unlawful 14year campaign to deny its employees their right to union membershi phi t a new low this month when the company despite a total of six formal negotiating sessions during April, May and June —deliberately told a group of Roman Catholic bishops that representatives of the Amalgamated Workers Union had been unavailable for bargaining talks in Roanoke Rapids, N.C. since March 9. The bishops were also told that "during the last 12 months there have been only ten full days and three half days of ne gotiating meetings." In truth, the union says, since June 1976 there have been about twenty such meetings, a few of which took place between December 1976 and April 22 while Stevens was being tried by the government for bad faith bargaining in Roanoke Rapids, a fact not mentioned to the bishops.

NCC LABOR DAY PROCLAMATION [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 August 1977
NCC LABOR DAY PROCLAMATION NATIONAL COUNCIL OF THE CHURCHES OF CHRIST IN THE U.S.A. DIVISION OF CHURCH AND SOCIETY 475 Rivorsicfe Drive, fvew York, fsi.Y. 100? 1 Room 572 Wtliiam P Thompson Presi'i.»;it Clune Rj'.fia't, Genetdl Secretaiy The Churches in their longing to bring the fullness of justice and peace into the world are profoundly troubled by the intolerable suffering of this country's unemployed men, women, and youth. We see that it is at the root of so much economic hardship: that savings are depleted, mortgages go unpaid and neighborhoods deteriorate, that children go hungry and crime and violence grow as desperate people seek a means to survive. But on a deeper level we recognize that unemployment makes it impossible for its victims to make a purposeful, creative, socially responsible contribution through work, so essential to their dignity as human beings. Indeed, these persons, who are made in the image of God to be stewards over His creation, are thus thwarted from wo...
High Unemployment Hurts All: Full Employment Benefits All [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 August 1977
High Unemployment Hurts All : Full Employment Benefits All This selection has been taken from a booklet prepared by Senator Hubert H. Humphrey and Representative Augustus F. Hawkins, The booklet provides comprehensive background material for the ,r Full Employment and Balanced Growth Act of 1977" (S. 50 and 27. j?. SO) and can be obtained free by writing to the offices of Senator Humphrey or Representative Hawkins. Too frequently, discussion of the injury due to unemployment focuses only upon the official rate of unemployment at given points in time. The true level of unemployment in 1976 was 9.7 million. Moreover, taking into account the rotation of unemployment among different persons in the course of the year and the dependents of the unemployed, the income losses, anxieties, and sense of rejection hit directly more than 60 million Americans in 1976 alone. That in itself is intolerable. And in addition, unemployment is a prime index of our total economic performance, and massive ...

ISSUES MEMORANDUM: THE UNITED STATES AND THE ILO [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 August 1977
ISSUES MEMORANDUM: THE UNITED STATES AND THE ILO by Stephen M. Taran &amp; Rosemarie Philips Overseas Development Council The United States is on the threshold of a decision regarding its continued participation in the International Labor Organization (ILO). In its most narrow context, this decision involves nothing more than determining whether the United States should tolerate conditions which, in its judgment, impair the ability of the ILO to fulfill its mandate. But in a broader context, the decision involves considerations of U.S. relations with its Western European allies, with nations of the Third World, and with the Soviet Union. Because of the unique, tripartite structure of the ILO with each member nation's delegation consisting of two government delegates, one worker delegate, and one employer, delegate the decision directly involves U.S. domestic political interests as well. Without the consent and support of the AFL-CIO and the U.S. Chamber, of Commerce, which a...
Awakening from a Dream of Kings and Wizards [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 August 1977
Awakening from a Dream of Kings and Wizards Do you remember, in the movie of The Wizard of Oz, how the Wizard is first introduced? He appears as an enormous, ominous, glowing green face, whose voice resounds, "I am Oz, the Great and Terrible! Who are you? And what do you seek?" After Dorothy and her friends are sufficiently terrified, he agrees to fulfill their petitions, but only if they can bring back the witch's broom. They finally bring it back, after dissolving the witch in a splash of water, but then the great Wizard renounces his promises. While Dorothy and her companions are shuddering amid bursts of lightning and sheets of thunder, however, Dorothy's little dog Toto has gone to the corner of the great throne room and pulled back a small curtain —and there, within, is a little man pulling levers and shouting into a microphone. The voice then comes from the huge green face, "I am Oz, the Magnificent, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. Such sounds were made more ...
