Waging Wars and Warring For Wages

Diplomacy could be the President’s lasting imprint,
but hawks seek to undermine Iran negotiations,
and Obama threatens to sabotage his own legacy
as his ISIS escalation risks a new Mideast quagmire.

On the home front, the Fight for $15
pushes minimum wage into maximum spotlight,
and Democrats realize that waging a wage war
could be their best battlefield leading to 2016.

Meanwhile, the President splits with his party
over the monstrous TPP trade deal —
as labor warns of low wages and currency wars,
the Left finds its own set of negotiations to oppose.

Unlikely allies and escalation on all fronts
as some in Congress choose to wage wars
and others focus on warring for wages.
How it works out is anyone’s wager.

Whether you’re working, wondering or waiting,
why not wander over to share views and booze
at your local progressive social club.
