Discurso de Obama en el Dia del Trabajo
septiembre 6, 2011 § Deja un comentario
La situación económica a la deriva y leyendo el discurso de Obama en el día del trabajo, se puede ver que aun y después de dos años de crisis el Presidente aun no ha entendido la naturaleza del problema y por ende sigue ofreciendo remedios poco efectivos.
De corto plazo, se tiene que incentivar la creación de la pequeña y mediana empresa, no solo a través de incentivos fiscales si no también a través de reformas legales. Se tiene reactivar la liquidez y el acceso al crédito, si no a través de los grandes bancos a través de otros canales. Se tiene que ayudar al consumidor y dejar de subsidiar a los grandes bancos. Finalmente, el gobierno (republicanos y demócratas) tiene alinear sus objetivos y dar claridad y certidumbre política, es imperativo un marco regulativo estable.

The right to organize and collectively bargain is a fundamental American value. Since its beginnings in our country, organized labor has raised our living standards and built our middle class. It is the reason we have a minimum wage, weekends away from work to rest and spend time with family, and basic protections in our workplaces. Many Americans today are given opportunities because their parents and grandparents fought for these basic rights and values. The principles upheld by the honorable laborers of generations past and their unions continue to fuel the growth of our economy and a strong middle class.
This year has seen a vigorous fight to protect these rights and values, and on this Labor Day, we reaffirm that collective bargaining is a cornerstone of the American dream. From public employees — including teachers, firefighters, police, and others who perform public services — to workers in private industries, these men and women hold the power of our Nation in their hands.
In the last several years, we have pulled our country back from the brink, through a series of tough economic decisions. While we have come far, great challenges still face us. Many Americans are still struggling, and many are unemployed. My Administration is working tirelessly each day to promote policies that get Americans back to work. We will always strive to keep our fundamental promise that, in America, anyone who works hard and acts responsibly can provide a better future for their children. When we come together, there is no limit to what the American workforce can do.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 5, 2011, as Labor Day. I call upon all public officials and people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities that acknowledge the tremendous contributions of working Americans and their families.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand eleven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.
