When workers don’t have a voice on the job, they can’t speak up about unsafe working conditions. That’s why states with so-called “right to work” laws have more injuries and fatalities at the workplace.
SHARE, because when politicians propose these laws, we need to hear what they’re really saying.

plot twist: nbc cancels itself
That’s a given.
More population = more people = more people in prison.
What you should look at is the percentage of people in jail and compare it with other countries.
Well then China would have the world’s largest prision population. But it doesn’t.
The US has 5% of the world’s population but 25% of the world’s incarcerated population. This should be common knowledge by now.
70% of the US prison population is People of Color, that’s as much as all of China’s prisons.
The United States not only has the worlds largest prison population, but we have the worlds largest per capita prison population at well over 700 of ever 100,000 people incarcerated.
China has 1 billion more people than the US, yet still imprisons about 1 million fewer people than the US.
So yeah, really, land of the free, home of the largest prison population by any way you want to measure it. But five-year-olds still have the right to shoot their two-year-old sisters! Freedom!!11
In February, I posted two pieces in Bed-Stuy on Tompkins and Halsey. These two pieces got the most attention of any pieces I’ve put up so far. Within a few days, someone had written his response to the work directly onto the posters. From there, a woman wrote a response to him. And it went on and, on with different hand-written comments creating this kind of interesting discussion. The pieces remained up until a week or so ago, when the phallic image was drawn. That’s when I decided to try to take them down.
The “Stop Telling Women to Smile” piece remained in tact enough for me to include it in the exhibition. I thought it was important to present in the show, so that people could view these written reactions.
