CT. Gov : Give Sikorsky a Chance

In a letter to President Bush, Gov. M. Jodi Rell said she wants the Navy to reconsider the decision awarding the Marine One helicopter contract to Lockheed Martin instead of to Stratford-based Sikorsky Aircraft.

Women told, 'Work in brothel, or else'

German law forces out-of-work females to take sex jobs or lose unemployment
A provision in the German welfare system is forcing out-of-work women to chose between taking jobs in the sex industry or losing their unemployment benefits.

The German experience closely follows that of the Netherlands, according to the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women. Following the 2000 legalization of prostitution by the Dutch and the registration of prostitutes, brothels began using official job centers to find new employees.

Germany legalized prostitution in 2002 in the belief it would slow down the trafficking in women and reduce the role of organized crime in the profession. Instead, government is expanding the sex industry by guaranteeing a steady stream of new recruits, some willing and some not.

Democrats Decry Use of Agency in Social Security Battle

"These messages serve no other purpose than to sear the idea of crisis into the public's mind," said Sen. Frank Lautenberg D-N.J.

Steve Kofahl, a Social Security claims representative from Seattle who addressed the all-Democrat panel, said SSA employees have been told that Social Security is in a crisis that only private accounts can salvage. He said the employees "have been directed to share this message with the public at every opportunity."

"I do not believe it is proper for public funds or public employees to be used to stir up fear" and push the White House agenda, Kofahl said.

Public Official ...Puts Poor in Prison

Poor and cold, unemployed and sickly Zhao Lizhong wrote President Hu Jintao of China. Zhao pleaded they had nowhere else to turn. He and his co-workers were laid-off and cheated by their employer, the power supply company; they had not received the pension benefits promised. After many petitions, for the benefits promised, Zhao, and his wife Gong Xiuchen were imprisoned.

China does not have an independent judiciary, the communist party runs the justice system. Zhao complained: There is no law. They were sent to labor camp because he was told they disturbed social stability. With corrupt officals, going to the police is no option for help. Public officals are connected to the police, and ending in prison is a certainty. - Poor and Powerless, Washington Post 01/26/05
