With over 200,000 confirmed cases and soon to be 10,000 deaths, the coronavirus pandemic is wreaking havoc across the globe. The virus continues to expose inadequacies in healthcare systems around the world, particularly in the United States. The situation in the U.S. is particularly concerning, as the for-profit healthcare system has been unable to appropriately respond. Testing has been woefully inadequate, and hospitals around the country are reporting shortages. Healthcare workers are at particular risk, and many have been sounding the alarm about poor working conditions and shortages in personal protective equipment across the country. 

If you are a healthcare worker (doctor, nurse, physician assistant, scientist, lab technician, medical assistant, respiratory therapist, home health aide, nursing home worker, or any other worker not mentioned) and have concerns over working conditions that may harm individual patients’ or the public’s health, Left Voice wants to hear from you! The world needs all concerned healthcare workers who have dedicated their lives to serving patients to speak out at this time. It is the only way we will be able to expose the abhorrent conditions we are all currently seeing. Please contact us!

After Historic Strike, UAW Bureaucrats Sit By as Stellantis Lays Off Hundreds of Workers

Only a few months after a historic contract struggle and strike, Stellantis announced job cuts in early December that have begun and will continue to take effect this month. A reminder that under capitalism the only way for workers to get what they need is self-organization, independent of the union bureaucracy, Democrats and Republicans.

The Organic Crisis in 2024: This Year’s Election Is a Battle for the Hearts and Minds of U.S. Workers

The battle between Trump and Biden is being shaped by a crisis of the political regime, requiring the intervention of both the judiciary and the union bureaucracy. The battle for the presidency is a battle for the working class and a battle over which approach to imperialism is best for competing with China and reestablishing US hegemony. As usual, the Democrats are taking up the cudgel of democratic rights in order to rally disaffected voters.

The United States Is Trapped in the Middle East

As a result of Israel’s offensive on Gaza, the United States is again becoming deeply entrenched in the Middle East. This is a humiliating blow to President Biden, who promised to reassert U.S. imperialism by moving away from direct involvement in the region.
