Why Employers should encourage talk about salary

According to the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 (NLRA), all workers have the right to engage “concerted activity for mutual aid or protection” and “organize a union to negotiate with [their] employer concerning [their] wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of employment.”

Congressman Smith STEM Bill Clears House

The House of Representatives approved the STEM Education Act of 2014 (H.R. 5031). The STEM Education Act of 2014 strengthens ongoing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education efforts and ensures computer science is included in these efforts.

We need to ensure that young adults have the scientific and mathematical skills to strive and thrive in a technology-based economy. But we have to capture and hold the desire of our nation’s youth to study science and engineering so they will want to pursue these careers.

What is Amnesty?

Alan Nash, author of the "10 for 10" Plan, gives the definition of amnesty.

What is amnesty?

Amnesty is the status quo.

Amnesty is allowing illegals to stay here, unidentified, uncounted, undocumented, and untaxed.

Amnesty is shouting for self-deportation, which is a fantasy, and which will never happen.

Amnesty is denouncing those who have real solutions. Those who want to eliminate the job magnet that creates this flood of illegals.

Amnesty is shouting but doing absolutely nothing to realistically solve the problems.   Read more »

The concerns expressed by Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and Sheldon Adelson are shared by countless men and women across the country

The concerns expressed by these billionaires are shared by countless men and women I meet everyday trying to run small businesses. They cannot find workers. They are afraid of losing the tenured and trained employees they have now. Our current border crisis is the result of not having an immigration fix. We need Congress to act!   Read more »

Passage of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act to Reform and Streamline Nation’s Workforce Training System

I am extremely pleased with the bi-partisan passage of H.R. 803, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which will reform and streamline our nation’s current workforce training system in order to make it more effective, modern, and accountable.

So, What Do You Think? Ben Carson For President?

Dr. Ben Carson is the antithesis of Barack Obama, which is to say, Dr. Carson is logical and competent. He doesn’t just work on brains, he actually USES his!

Dr. Carson make a lot of sense, and that vexes the Left.

Only the frivolous Left would argue that their policies have led to utter destruction of the black community, with the larger community on life support.   Read more »

Immigration: The New Civil Rights Movement

"Why politics?" I am often asked, “What in the world made you decide to participate in politics?” Texas politics is well known to be a tumble-and-rumble sport. It is one of the most gruesome, unforgiving, vile, and cruel “sports” if you ask me; and oftentimes I think that perhaps it is a sport that you put first before your own convictions—whether religious or Constitutional. But politics is also a means to an end,

Five years ago, companies were building terminals to import natural gas at the cost of billions of dollars because analysts agreed that the United States' economy was going to need natural gas from overseas. Today that scenario has flipped on its head, and import terminals are dormant. The Department of Energy has 19 applications waiting to get permission to export U.S. natural gas.   Read more »
