Let me cite the following from the section on "Community-Based Sustainable Economics"
To begin the transition to a sustainable system, we support:or --
The creation and spread of local currencies and barter.
This latter comes at a time when new statistics show that the average American work week has been expanding and is now runing over 60 hrs. per week for white collar jobs in some companies. Even by 2001, it was reported that "Workers in the United States are putting in more hours than anyone else in the industrialized world."
Adopting a 30-hour work week as a standard. This could translate into as many as 26 million new jobs.
Other than working on the California Fair Wage Initiative, what is the Green Party doing on economic issues in support of, or in spite of, this platform statement?
