Wages have been stagnant for the last 15 years while corporate profits have increased substantially. The legs of our labor unions were broken during the great recession of 2008. We lost the grounds on which our labor unions were standing, and the unions crashed, braking their legs. We must heal the labor unions because it is time to feed the horse that pulls the cart much better. The corporations have been filling their pockets with much feed.
I even read from a social medium that labor unions was a thing of the past. I immediately knew that he was a Republican. I engaged him knowing that I was going to hear the same stock answers to my reasoning for an increase in wages that I have been hearing for the past 60 years with each time it being untrue…didn’t happen…no abnormal lost of jobs…no abnormal closing of businesses…several time businesses even increased. Why are Republicans Anti-Labor Unions? Because they have to share more of their wealth with the workers who are sweating through the laborious process of productions.
Republicans will always dodge the proposal of the “Living Wage”. This makes Republicans shake in their booties. If over night American hourly workers join a strong union and demand a living wage, than we would have a rash of Republicans jumping out of the window of their high-raise office with a few Republican spies and moles jumping from a lower floor.
They are not your friends. Management’s job is to increase profits. If they have to fire you with a pat on the back and a shitty smile they will in order to increase profits. Don’t look up the stairs and into all of the cracks; look at a strong collective bargaining power of a labor union of your coworkers.
There is a good chance that we shall suffer a Republican Presidency for the 8 years to come; so, we must counter with a very strong and determined labor union. The new labor unions must be super strong; strong enough to demand free medical care.
In addition, our labor unions must be so strong that we can demand free medical care from employers and government. And, by all means, don’t fall for the socialism government trick. All government are responsible for their people. That’s why governments exist. Medical care is caring for the people. Around the 1900’s America lagged behind England in all things, even brains. England is not a socialistic country. Canada is not a socialistic country. Let’s caught up with England where it comes to medical care. Please don’t fall for vane things such as you can keep your own doctor but you must pay $300 per month out of the family budget. DON’T BE AN IDIOT.
The Republicans always plays on our vanity and selfishness such as if we have to pay a few more dollars in order to support free medical for everyone, than we won’t have enough money left to give you a raise. Next, they always play on etiquette’s and being nice because any protests might cost them profits. These are traditional lies and deceptions of the Republican corporate and business owners. What the extra cost to a rich Republican would really mean is that they would have one less new luxury vehicle in their garages in which they didn’t need in the first place.
THE BIBLE IS STILL THE BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD.
