          Turkey’s Creeping Authoritarianism: Is the Resistance Enough? 
    
          May 17, 2016
    
          With his Justice and Development Party (AKP) controlling a sizable majority in parliament, Erdoğan has been steadily increasing his grip on power, with police raids on opposition media, the jailing of independent journalists on trumped-up charges, severe repression in Kurdish-populated areas and arrests of even moderate non-violent Kurdish leaders for alleged terrorist ties, the undermining of the independent judiciary, and the arrests of political opponents.

          The Bitter Consequences of Corporate America&#039;s War on Unions
    
          May 17, 2016
    
          "Workers clearly get the message that they if they want to keep their job, they need to endure what happens inside the plant — or, in the words of many, 'allí está la puerta' ('there’s the door')." This sense of helplessness is felt across many industries and is largely the result of a ruthless, decades-long effort by highly class-conscious elites to dismantle unions and undercut potential threats to the accumulation of profit.

          Why The Campaign Against Brazil’s First Female President Is An Attack Against All Women
    
          May 17, 2016
    
          The prevailing feeling is that Temer’s Cabinet will continue this ugly game played by these dirty white men, so experienced in the art of war; a war that was created by them. This time, after a gap of 37 years, the Cabinet is again composed only of men in a country where 51 percent of the population is women. The Ministry of Women will cease to exist, according to Temer, who shows his beautiful wife by his side, just like women should behave, apparently . . .

           The Coming Democratic Crackup
    
          May 17, 2016

          McDonald&#039;s Just Admitted That Worker Benefits Are Actually Good for Business
    
          May 17, 2016
    
          Higher pay scales for longer-term employees would likely further reduce turnover and increase loyalty, says Erin Johansson, research director at Jobs With Justice. It would also reduce the burden on tax-paying Americans, who shell out more than $1.2 billion each year to cover public assistance programs for McDonald's employees, according to a recent study by the National Employment Law Project.

          Film:  Three Tribeca Narratives
    
          May 17, 2016
    
          When arriving at a film festival like Tribeca, it’s pretty much a crap shoot when you scour the large catalog and read the brief descriptions of the films. Among the many choices, there were at least three narratives that passed the test and went on to win awards from the jury and the audience.
