Social Justice

December 11, 2016

 

Social justice can be achieve in four steps
Here is the concept
Until a new regime takes power the paradigm won’t shift
So the working class can benefit
First we have to accept the basic hypothesis
That we are all eena this 
All for one and one for all
Indian, chief or battle washer, a dignified life for all
After a 40 hour working week
We each deserve a descent piece

Once established, onward to building the political will
Two out of ten people to align with a labour party still
Then onwards to the tipping point in the territory
Forming the government of the country
Then the third step will come naturally
We take control of natural resources of the territory
Not only human but physically
And the corporations resource in country
All that forms part of the macro economy
Making the government a referee
Between organize business and labour
Allowing them to be their own self regulator

Not through nationalisation
But taxation and regulation
Effectively controlling corporations 
Operating in the nation
It’s a shift in paradigm, 
Acceptance of their role as good cooperate citizens
They way they respect that laws governing private citizens
Individual actions
They too as corporations 
Must respect the laws and regulation
That governs their operations in our territory
Starting with respecting workers’ dignity

Unionizing and organizing labour force
Organizing businesses, will be the new course
All Belize must join this discourse 
The Chamber of Commerce
Should focus on Commerce
Leaving an organizing association to emerge
Organizing businesses by sectors of the economy
Multiple organizations for business
Expanding labour, organized labour force as a prerogative
Then forming their own collective bargaining agreement per sector
Setting agriculture at a low figure
Yet allowing it to be beneficial to the farmer

It must not be a free market
Meaning free from regulation as they often interpret
Belize must profit
The absence of regulation creates poverty
We must ensure the wealth is distributed evenly
We need a regulated market 
Understanding certain sectors will be nationalized
Government will be decentralized
Banana should have been nationalized
Dangriga workers cooperate ownership would have been realized
