Free Education for Innovative Self-Management Act

Urgency: High
Author: Free South Califas (C)
Sponsors: Osea 767 (C), Slazliyka (C), Polvia (RG), Threlizdun (C), Kouralia (USLP), Aeken (LD)

The Aurentine Senate,

Recognising that all economies require a steady influx of innovation in order to be robust, efficient and competitive;

Defining workers as those who can or do perform (a) specific work task(s) which is/are directly productive from the perspective of their employer (hypothetically as necessary), that is, which generates an opportunity for more revenue and/or profit for a company interested in such things than that company would have without hiring them;

Lamenting that potentially inefficient and biased modes of communication in hierarchical firms may prevent or delay innovation due to the interests of a single firm or of (an) established officer(s) thereof being weighed as a concern alongside or instead of the interests of the whole nation or of the entire economy thereof;

Noting with resignation that the profit motive often requires labor to be compensated with less than the full value of its product in wages, which some workers may consider exploitative;

Appalled at the consequence that many workers are forced to choose between exploitative wages and poverty or worse,

Resolved to ameliorate this situation and establish a certain standard of dignity in economic affairs through voluntary means,

Clarifying that this Act may not be limited in its funding or effect by any previous act of the Senate,

Hereby establishes educational programs through which workers may improve skills relevant to increasing their earning potential through self-employment and collective self-management in democratic workplaces, including:

1. Free classes at existing, and/or new if necessary, physical and internet-based academic sites, primarily,
-A. drafting business plans and other introductory business classes,
-B. basic accounting,
-C. basic political economy,
-D. relevant basic mathematics,
-E. remedial mathematics, grammar, vocabulary, history and literature as necessary, and
-F. social skills, some tailored to individuals with general deficits/differences and some to the skills all businesspeople need i.e. in maintaining client relationships, pitching ideas to a producer, etc.;
-G. Establishing the Free Education Fund for Self-Directed Innovation (FEFSDI), with a mandate to create minimal departments and subdivisions within itself and delegate as necessary to complete its tasks, which shall be tasked with providing such classes listed above, devising such requirements as are necessary to prioritize helping those who can state a feasible goal, encouraging private charities and philanthropists to fund such classes on their own and make them freely available to the public, reporting on the outcome of such encouragement, and investigating potential improvements to the list of free classes above, which it may suggest to the Senate,
-H. Granting FEFSDI a starting budget of £2 billion per annum with a mandate to spend it as efficiently as possible in a good faith effort to deliver the highest quality, most empowering and broadest civic-minded education to the most workers according to the goals listed above,

2. Vouchers for necessary classes in academic fields directly relevant to the specific work being done or proposed by current or prospective self-employed individuals, whether as part of collectively owned and operated corporations or in isolation, which specifically relates to doing such work in a self-employed/self-managed context, for example the need to acquire basic mastery in medical notation so as to avoid hiring an expensive specialist,
-A. Establishing the Democratic Entrepeneur Education Voucher Organization (DEEVO), which shall be tasked with receiving and in good faith analysing requests for such vouchers, responding to them in a timely manner, and granting such vouchers as it considers necessary to further the business goals of self-employed individuals and democratically operated cooperative corporations, and which may upon each new unrelated request demand an explanation of how the worker plans to incorporate the class material into their business (plan),
-B. Granting DEEVO a starting budget of £2 billion per annum with a mandate to spend it as efficiently as possible in delivering the most necessary, most empowering and most socially useful classes to the workers who are most directly poised to incorporate them into a realistic plan for economic empowerment.

(Edited to comply with SGSPEA. Apologies for initially submitting this as 'Public Work Center Act'. There are no Centers in Aurentina :lol: )

This should be added to the queue from here:
Public Work Centre Act

Urgency: High
Author: Free South Califas (C)
Sponsors: Osea 767 (C), Slazliyka (C), Threlizdun (C), Kouralia (USLP), Aeken (LD)

Description:

The Aurentine Senate,

Dismayed that in many of our cities, towns and rural areas, there may be vital work to be done in the name of society in general, which is not adequately performed because it is not profitable to comprehensively address it,

Defining workers as those who can or do perform (a) specific work task(s) which is/are directly productive from the perspective of their employer (hypothetically as necessary), that is, which generates an opportunity for more revenue and/or profit for themselves or a company interested in such things than that entity would have without the benefit of their work,

Further lamenting that potentially inefficient and biased modes of communication in hierarchical firms may prevent or delay innovation due to the interests of a single firm or of (an) established officer(s) thereof being weighed as a concern alongside or instead of the interests of society at large,

Revising the Universal Credit Act so as to strike Article 2h from the law, and render its text null and void, clarifying that all text shall be removed and voided from Universal Credit Act and all other laws which would otherwise deny or in any way limit the ability of the Senate to extend or create benefits,

Hereby establishes Public Work Centres, with persistent physical and internet presence, through which socially important work can be done which may otherwise be ignored or inadequately performed because of profit or budgetary concerns;

A. Establishing for the purpose of organizing such opportunities and efficiently tracking the hours, intensity and nature of duties performed for the public good at such centres, the Public Work Centre Administration (PWCA), which shall first be tasked with analyzing the present socioeconomic conditions and proposing sensible policy suggestions for how many such centres to place, where to place them, and what sort of budgetary considerations shall be required;

B. Finding at a minimum that at least the following tasks or significant components thereof are suitable for self-directed public work administered through the PWCA: cleaning public areas; assisting with environmental maintenance or sustainability work; providing essential care to children, the elderly or the disabled; contributing to the planting or harvesting of publically owned or community-accessible food or clothing or medical crops; maintaining or repairing publically owned or community-accessible vehicles, or building bicycles; building, maintaining or repairing common computer technology; giving tours at public facilities of great interest; security patrol as the first line of defense to protect sensitive public facilities; and other tasks not requiring an exceptionally onerous degree of investment, training or risk of bodily or mental harm compared to the listed tasks as performed in the normal range of conditions;

C. Granting the PWCA all requisite powers and privileges to form a reasonable number of departments concerned with discrete tasks like payroll accounting, etc.;

D. Allowing the PWCA to directly supervise a small number of work hours per given period, with the aim of ensuring public investments in such work centres are used efficiently, given legally and ethically adequate informed consent on the part of all parties, selected at random from among all workers so employed at the time, except those who have already been supervised significantly more than others in this way, unless they have shown evidence of a dishonest personality through meaningful relevant actions or words observed by PWCA officials and the extra scrutiny is thought to be warranted by at least one such official in active service, although this evidence should be periodically reviewed in light of other potential explanatory factors like medical diagnoses which involve an unusual degree of fatigue or a difficulty in social interaction, for example;

E. Requiring the government to fairly compensate work performed at these centres, at least as such:
-1. Mandating the PWCA to maintain and periodically update at least a local list at each centre, and a unified national list, of standard pay rates in all fields of work performed at each respective centre, including all data relevant to paying a more precise wage for particular levels of intensity or education involved;
-2. Amending all currently active and future legislation establishing benefits which accrue to workers, under any name such as 'unemployment', 'credit', 'welfare', 'disability', etc., such that for the purposes of all workers who perform socially beneficial work tracked by the PWCA as described above, all benefits intended for individuals seeking work or performing underpaid work shall be automatically renewed for each week in which said individual performs more than 5 hours of work, for each month in which the individual performs more than 20 hours of work, or for some other equivalent period if it is more relevant to the legislation in question, and such that all of the time gained through this automatic renewal process is considered separately from any and all other time limits established in any other legislation, which are considered to stop immediately before the automatic renewal takes effect and to resume immediately after the renewal's effect has ended;
-3. Adding an exception to E2 for workers who have used such automatic renewals for over 4 months consecutively, except for those who have submitted an explanation to the PWCA through any useful medium which is considered by at least two PWCA officials to be sufficient, as to why they have special difficulty finding regular work or contributing more hours to the public work centres, i.e. a disability or cognitive difference which may make it difficult for them to interact with others, but if this explanation does not refer to a legitimate and relevant medical diagnosis, a new or rephrased explanation shall be required at least every 2 months, citing generally realistic goals for the future;
--i. Medical or ability-related explanations may be submitted to the PWCA on an individual worker's behalf by a doctor, therapist or social worker with whom they have an active working relationship. If the worker is denied benefits through this route, they may submit their own explanation as an appeal, in case the care professional misunderstood or poorly explained their situation.
-4. In any case allowing such benefits to accrue automatically to any worker who contributes over 30 hours of work in a given week, or over 115 hours of work in a given month, if necessary in order to compensate such work;
-5. Mandating the PWCA to pay a competitive wage for hourly work, or the minimum legal wage under all combined considerations, whichever is higher, within two weeks of the work having been performed;
-6. Allowing an exception to E5 in fields or varieties of work for which it is standard to be paid per goal or project (component), in which case the PWCA shall do so, or pay the minimum legal wage under all combined considerations, whichever is higher, within two weeks of the work having been performed;
-7. Also to make available at the work centre, in a form which can be taken away and demonstrated to others, official notices that the worker will be paid soon, as necessary to help workers negotiate their financial obligations in the off hours.

Collective Benefit Option Act

Urgency: High
Author: Free South Califas (C)
Sponsors: Osea 767 (C), Slazliyka (C), Polvia (RG), Threlizdun (C), Kouralia (USLP), Aeken (LD)

Description:

The Aurentine Senate,

Revising the Universal Credit Act so as to strike Article 2h from the law, and render its text null and void, clarifying that all text shall be removed and voided from Universal Credit Act and all other laws which would otherwise deny or in any way limit the ability of the Senate to extend or create benefits;

Recognising that all economies require a steady influx of innovation in order to be robust, efficient and competitive;

Defining workers as those who can or do perform (a) specific work task(s) which is/are directly productive from the perspective of their employer (hypothetically as necessary), that is, which generates an opportunity for more revenue and/or profit for a company interested in such things than that company would have without hiring them;

Lamenting that potentially inefficient and biased modes of communication in hierarchical firms may prevent or delay innovation due to the interests of a single firm or of (an) established officer(s) thereof being weighed as a concern alongside or instead of the interests of the whole nation or of the entire economy thereof;

Noting with resignation that the profit motive often requires labor to be compensated with less than the full value of its product in wages, which some workers may consider exploitative;

Appalled at the consequence that many workers are forced to choose between exploitative wages and poverty or worse, enacts the following into law:

1. Identifies several major problems in the social and economic condition which may be exacerbated by this dilemma:

-A. The development of industry suffers from the lack of potentially innovative techniques which could be offered by more robust competition;

-B. What innovation is employed toward productive ends, may be limited to uncredited improvisations required to complete tasks without drawing attention to problems which ideally ought to be addressed, and the innovator duly rewarded;

-C. Unemployment and the lack of satisfying or sufficiently renumerated employment are artificially high despite the apparent desire of almost all people to contribute positively to their society;

-D. The labor market may be artificially depressed if ambitious workers are prevented from developing administrative and management skills in a practical environment due to the decreased profitability of hiring and training more people for such work and/or expanding the size of meetings at which important production decisions are made;

-E. Income inequality may be inflated because the highest salaries tend to accrue to managers and directors, who likely have the power to take credit for some of their subordinate employees' work, and disproportionate influence over the process of determining their own salaries compared to the income of other workers; while the lowest wages tend to accrue to workers who have least control over the decisions which affect them, regardless of the value, amount or intensity of the work provided;

-F. Innovative workers may be prevented from producing the best possible goods and services because of false subjective evaluations during interviews by individuals with disproportionate power within hierarchical firms, possibly toward discriminatory ends which are difficult to prove in each incident and which may be quite accidental, i.e. that an innovative autistic interviewee's lack of eye contact is erroneously perceived to signal disinterest in the opportunity;

-G. Many workers feel alienated from their work due to a lack of control over it, risking a psychological symptom called 'learned helplessness', a factor in depression and other serious illnesses which may artificially deflate their and the market's interest in what should be lucrative opportunities for them to innovate;

-H. Some workers may feel less than entirely free to express their personality at work through varied productive and creative passions due to the pressure of finding employment for a specific task desired by a person or corporation which already controls a sufficient amount of capital, and these workers may suffer an artificial deflation of market wage value due to the deterioration of natural talents which are not adequately nurtured at particular places of employment;

-I. Workers may not have adequate opportunity to contribute their labor at odd hours or on unusual schedules, even if this labor is required for the proper dignified functioning of society, i.e. elder care, child care, sanitation, civil engineering, etc.;

2. Resolves to encourage the most practical solution(s) to multiple problems above in an efficient and timely manner without causing undue burden;

3. Suggests that the voluntary proliferation of democratic workplaces may create an opportunity to resolve or ameliorate several such problems simultaneously with small, efficient investments aimed at increasing innovation while attacking un(der)employment and broadening the skill base of workers;
-A. Noting in any case that even if we fail in this goal, the Aurentine economy and society will be better off for having a larger number of self-confident, highly skilled, civic-minded, educated workers who feel grateful to society for their opportunities and value each other as equals in a moral sense;

4. Encourages workers to employ themselves or form their own democratic corporations to manage their own work with minimal outside interference,

5. Resolves to make it easier for workers to enter into business by amending all currently active and future legislation establishing continuing benefits which accrue to workers, under any name such as 'unemployment', 'credit', 'welfare', 'disability', etc., such that in lieu of receiving such benefits normally on an individual basis, any number of recipients may form an organisation together in which they have equal decision-making power, through which they may together draw their total benefits collectively in the interest of opening or maintaining a democratically-operated business which may have profit or (if a non-profit organisation) fiscally-sustainable non-partisan social progress as its motivating goal,
-A. Requiring such 'collective recipients' to have together submitted a single business plan which is more or less feasible compared to the standard for its relevant industry, field, or component field, without which they shall continue to receive only their normal benefits, but may attempt to submit a better plan until such time as the CRPAO finds such activity disruptive to its goals stated in this Act as originally written,
-B. Establishing for the purpose of receiving and analysing in good faith all such business plans, the Collective Recipient Plan Analysis Organisation (CRPAO), which shall be tasked with resolving and making available to recipients such analyses in speedy fashion,
-C. Allowing such a group of collective recipients to receive, if necessary for the feasibility of the business, their expected combined benefits for a given number of years as a lump sum or as collateral for a loan provided at no more than the minimum reasonable cost or debt to recuperate its overhead and calculated risk,
-D. Establishing for the purpose of funding all such collectively received benefits and loans and advocating for the necessary funding for this project, the General Fund for Collectively Drawn Benefits (GFCDB),
-E. Granting to the GFCDB a general operating budget of £2 billion per annum and a mandate to spend it as efficiently as possible in order to bring about the above listed goals,
-F. Allowing to each such collective organisation of benefit recipients, for all purposes and in all combinations, a maximum draw (as capital or collateral) per worker of £200,000 per annum, which may not be dispensed a second time per the same annum in part or in whole,
-G. Considering this finality an excellent motivation for such recipients to work hard in the service of building a stable and competitive business together,

and finally,

5. Declares its solidarity with the unemployed and underemployed, aiming through this and other policies to eventually reduce unemployment to 0.

Congratulations, Prime Minister. It appears we finally have a Government, and with firm backing, too. I am satisfied that President Britanno has the support of the nation, and I certainly hope that my coalitionmates who were persuaded to vote 'Aye' without any concessions being given, will be remembered in the Council of Ministers.

I am honored to take the office of First Deputy Leader of the Opposition, and thank the Opposition for its trust in me. I believe they will be well appointed. May we ever strive to demonstrate the best alternative vision of government that we can, and may our two coalitions ever be united to bring the best possible law and society to Aurentina.

The problem is, since you've put them all in one post here, they can't meaningfully be added to the queue unless the omnibus motion passes. Otherwise the links will be all confusing and people won't know what they're voting on. I'll add a marker on the queue to hold your spot, though. If the motion fails, TG me at freesouthcalifas regionrelations council and I'll unfold them all on the queue so you don't get your spot jumped.

Did Battlion's proposed omnibus get enough seconds? I got confused with a load of different motions being made at once.

For the sake of millions of Aurentine children that need a fair and efficient education system and after the request made by Senator Battlion, I use my legislative queue jumping powers to move the Educational Excellence Omnibus to number one in the legislative queue.
