Americorps is a low wage labor pool for nonprofits looking to bank off people who want to do meaningful work. It puts people in poverty by making them choose their morality, or desire to make an impact, over their material need for a living wage. That’s capitalist exploitation. Any model that needs this sort of low wage component is capitalist. My end of service portfolio is gonna be a blast. I’m going to write about this and paint it over the Internet.

Ok, I usually don’t respond to such stuff but I assume you know that it isn’t the non-profits that pay the Americorp person but the government. So don’t sound like it’s the non-profit’s fault. Many, if not most, non-profits live at the budgetary margins to provide necessary public services that the government cannot or will not provide. If your position is that Americorp grossly under pays it’s “volunteers” then I’m with you as I have made the same point directly to Americorps/VISTA.

This program provides valuable assistance to small non-profits and valuable experience to the Americorp worker. Your complaint should be directed to those guys who work in that big white domed building at on end of Pennsylvania Avenue, particularly in the House.

It depends on the nonprofit and which Amercorp program (VISTA or State & National). Americorp stipends are paid by a grant from the government, but this does not mean ALL of your stipend comes from the government. Our national office writes for our grant, then pays in a portion itself for my stipend. But that is irrelevant to my critique, which you apparently don’t understand. 

"Americorps is a low wage labor pool for nonprofits looking to bank off people who want to do meaningful work."

Low wage labor pools are essential to maintaining capitalism. This has been the case from the very beginning. Before 1776 and to 1865 this was outright slavery, among other forms of exploitation like unpaid household labor, disproportionately performed by women. 

In 17 Contradictions of Capitalism, Marxist author David Harvey noted that capitalism never actually deals with its problems by resolving them, it merely moves the problems elsewhere. Today, with the absence of slavery, capitalism has formed a myriad of new low to virtually free labor sources. I’m not about to break all those down for you, but here are a few: prison labor, domestic work (still), immigrant labor (still), economic imperialism, internships, and yes, positions like Americorps. 

It never got rid of its need for cheap labor, it just diversified and socialized it. Nonprofits dipping into those labor pools is a testament to their capitalist nature, to the fact that the nonprofit sector originated as part of a systematic campaign to neutralize radical movements who were displacing State power by directly meeting the material needs of the People (like the Black Panthers). 

So my critique isn’t JUST of nonprofits: It’s bigger and deeper than that.

FBI billboards not about Assata Shakur; it’s about repressing the black communityMay 5, 2013
Following the ludicrous announcement that the Obama administration has placed Assata Shakur on its “most wanted terrorist list”, the FBI has erected billboards in Newark, New Jersey announcing its recently increased $2 million dollar reward. However, any critically thinking person knows that these billboards are not about capturing Assata Shakur but sending a message to the rest of us. Interestingly, perhaps just a coincidence or not, Newark, New Jersey is the place where a theater co-owned by Shaquille O’Neil, recently reneged on an agreement to show a popular independent film about the life of another former member of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.Is Assata Shakur in New Jersey? No, she is not and the FBI and the Obama administration know exactly where she is, in Cuba where she has lived since being granted political asylum by its government in 1979 after escaping from prison. 
This is not about Assata Shakur, it is about sending a message to the Black community and those that live within it who stand up to police violence, oppression and murder of residents, one of the very reasons for the formation of the Black Panthers. It is about the political repression of those who advocate on the behalf of the many political prisons being held by the United States government often in torturous conditions. It is about sending a message to anyone who would take up arms in defense of life, liberty and true freedom in a country that is home to the largest prison population in the world which the federal government and various corporations use as slave labor. It is about sending a message to those that would dare stand up and point out that the US government is the most violent entity on the planet and one that commits acts of terrorism against non-white people and nations on behalf of maintaining the American imperialist status-quo.Why else would the U.S. government seek to name Assata Shakur as a domestic terrorist after all these decades? We are talking about a woman who was shot twice while attempting to give herself up to police who were co-operating with Federal authorities to target and assassinate or otherwise eliminate members of the Black Liberation movement just as they had done and admitted in a civil lawsuit to doing to Martin Luther King Jr.The FBI and its corporate media wing fail to report the details of the sham case built against Assata Shakur after failing to win convictions on other trump up charges. The corporate media is failing to point out that a police officer, a state witness against Assata Shakur for the murder of another police officer, has recanted his testimony and admitted to lying on the stand. Medical personnel stated that because of nerves severed by a bullet, Assata Shakur would have been physically prevented from firing a weapon and it was also stated that her wounds indicate her hands were raised when she was shot consistent with her claim that she was giving herself up.Just as Assata Shakur has pointed out that COINTELPRO utilized and received full cooperation from the corporate media to demonize and alienate freedom fighters from the people who supported them, corporate media today is still fulfilling that role. The concept of a free and independent press in America has always been a fraud and it remains so today.
