Since Sliced Bread

The SEIU is looking for fresh, new ideas for a better America.  Oh, yeah, and they are going to pay real money for the best 21 ideas.  And some people wonder whether organized labor is still relevant to the modern world.  Just as there are old Democrats and new Democrats, there are old Labor folks and new Labor folks.  On their new website, www.sinceslicedbread.com, they say,

We're looking for fresh, new ideas for a better America. Do you have a common-sense idea that will improve the day-to-day lives of everyday Americans? Or an opinion on how working families can succeed in the new global economy?

Here’s what they say about why they are doing this:

Our nation is in the midst of one of the largest economic shifts in history. Many working families are struggling as wages drop and affordable child care, quality health care, and a secure retirement fall out of reach. As part of SEIU’s ongoing efforts to help ensure that ordinary Americans benefit from today’s global economy, Since Sliced Bread aims to give voice to common-sense ideas that would improve jobs and communities.

The site is cool. The idea is great. Take a read and think about what idea you want to submit.  Deadline is December 5th.
