Economic Justice

By Daniel Sokatch

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2005

The author asserts that our tradition and history compel us to stand with those fighting for a living wage and decent working conditions. He discusses the growing gap between the haves and the have-nots, the unavailability of healthcare and the evisceration of government regulation of industry. He urges that what we do about poverty and gross economic inequality today will determine the kind of America we live in tomorrow.
