The Return of the Holiday Layaway

 

GreenPath reminds shoppers of an alternative to using credit this holiday season;
Provides tips on using layaway

GreenPath Debt SolutionsFarmington Hills, MI – Layaway may sound like an old-school concept, especially in today’s “buy now, pay later” society. But the idea of setting aside products to pay for gradually is making a comeback, and is a great alternative to using credit cards this upcoming holiday season.

“The credit card allows shoppers to buy on impulse without the immediate worry of how to pay for their purchases,” said Dorothy Guzek , GreenPath Debt Solutions financial counselor. “Unfortunately, when the credit card bill comes due, consumers are left with a surprise balance they can’t afford to pay, because they forgot to keep track of each purchase.”

Layaway may be the answer for those who can’t afford to pay all at once or who simply want to avoid using credit cards this holiday season. An added benefit is that layaway helps keep prying eyes from gifts and presents before the big holiday celebration. «Read the rest of this article»

The Tennessee Convict War

The logo of the Correctional Corporation of America

In 1997 the Tennessee branch of the AFL-CIO made an agreement with the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) to support the privatization of Tennessee’s state prison system. This opened the door for Tennessee’s prison labor being used to compete with private industry.  Currently the highest-paying prisoner in Tennessee earns 50 cents an hour to produce jeans for K Mart and JC Penney, among other things.

Of all the states, Tennessee unions should have been the last ones to support prison labor. The reason lies more than a century in the past, in the days following the end of slavery. «Read the rest of this article»
