Estimates of how much the current wars have cost us range from 1 to 4 trillion dollars. The cost of tax cuts to the top 5% are estimated to be over a trillion dollars. Through increasing austerity measures, it is the middle and working classes that are paying the escalating costs of our militarized budget.
Gil Villagran, a San Jose State University social work lecturer, will be doing a special Veteran's Day teach-in on the question of class and class conflict, and its importance in thinking about the problems of the 99%. He will also talk about how class factors into the current wars and military recruitment.
