Useful article by a lawyer and professor who shows that software enables employers to steal workers’ wages. The deck is stacked against workers, unless we fight back—and we will.

Devastating news out of the Houston area today. I can't imagine the pain that the families of the students and teachers who were killed today are feeling. I ask that you please keep them in your prayers.

If you're a parent like me, we now find ourselves in a position that's all too familiar: figuring out how to make sense of this latest crisis so we can try to get to sleep tonight. In the coming days, you can expect to see familiar headlines like "Authorities search for motive in high school shooting." I've never understood this line of thinking. What motive are we expecting to find that could make any of the survivors accept that their friends and family had to die today?

Forget the motive for the crime, and let's focus on the means. Mass shootings happen all the time in this country and nowhere else in the developed world for one reason: our gun laws are different here than they are everywhere else in the developed world. Most people understand that, including Democrats, Republicans, gun owners, and NRA members, and we want to work towards a solution. Until we have representatives in Congress who understand that, too, we are guaranteed to have more days like today -- when a crime that we could have prevented takes the lives of children who didn't have to die.


Meet Marc

Marc Friedenberg is not a career politician. He’s an instructor at Penn State’s College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST), a devoted husband to his wife Becky, and a caring father to his two young daughters, Claire and Molly. He’s also a lawyer, and before he returned to the classroom as an educator, he sued the big Wall Street banks that caused the financial crisis, using his expertise with technology to prove that they had committed fraud.

Marc made his name locally as a healthcare activist. He took a stand when Tom Marino and the rest of our corrupt Congress tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would have thrown tens of thousands of our friends and neighbors off their health insurance in exchange for tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy and fatter profits for health insurance companies. Marc created a group called PA-5 Truth and Action, leading the charge locally as part of the successful national effort to defeat the ACA repeal. Now he’s ready to take the fight for justice to Washington for all of us.

“Healthcare is a human right. You deserve a Congressman who will fight for your family’s health, not corporate profits or a personal payday.”

Focused on Pennsylvania—not Washington.


Marc supports the Fight for $15. He supports union workers fight against so-called “right-to-work” laws, and will invest federal funds in infrastructure projects like rural broadband and solar energy in PA-12.


Marc will make investing federal money into public education a top priority, especially in our rural areas, and secure federal funding for our district’s higher education system, including our vocational and community college.


Marc supports a Medicare-for-all, single-payer national health insurance system. He will invest federal resources to fight the opioid crisis in our district and strengthen our rural community health centers.


Marc believes that clean air and water are a right for all human beings, not a privilege for the rich. Marc wants to invest in clean energy, like wind and solar and put people to work building and maintaining it.
