Oligarchies Fail the World

The oligarchies blame everything and everyone on the failure of the world’s financial system on big government, high taxes, unions, high wages, environmental laws, healthcare, Social Security and minimum wage, but the oligarchy capitalists are the people who have failed the world by their own greed. They shipped our jobs overseas to low wage countries, which has destroyed the buying power of the toilers.

They are hell bent on driving down the wages, such as the big box stores like WalMart and Target. Their policies have plotted to decrease the wage scale to the point where the wage slaves just accept this and have no extra money to buy extras or go on vacation. The capitalists also succeeded in protecting their interests by electing people who will not and did not enact financial laws that protect the financial system from greed and lawlessness. Again, the wage slaves are victimized by the 1 percent.

This is not the fault of the government system and the wage slaves. It is the people who have control of the money and they are not the 99 percent, in fact, it is the 1/10 percent of the 1 percent, the 1/10 of the 1 percent has so much money that they are just bored with their spending.

The oligarchies just want power and have started buying politicians and influencing the government process, which they have been very successful at this. Until they start running out of cash or are made to change thing -- things will be slow to change unless we make them.
We need to start rebuilding our infrastructure, pay down our debt, rebuild our armed forces and get our workers educated. Until we get rid of the temporary working force and get back to full-time jobs at 40 plus hours a week with good living wages, pensions and healthcare, we won’t regain the strength that our country is known for.

This spring the 99 percent must demand that the temporary jobs start going away and the oligarchies start hiring workers and paying them a living wage.

Post Workists and What it Means

To change the abundance of labor in the world is to put more money in the pockets of the laborer to buy the products their fellow workers are making. Otherwise, when there are more products than money, there is slump in the economy. Austerity policies, low wages and automation (robots) were also of concern in the 1950s when Henry Ford II, CEO of Ford, took Walter Reuther, head of the United Auto Workers Union, on a tour of a new engine plant. Ford gestured to a fleet of new machines and said, “Walter, how are you going to get these robots to pay union dues?” The union leader turned to Ford and said, “Henry, how are you going to get robots to buy your cars?” This type of change in the labor has created a new type of working class that swings from task to task in order to make ends meet while enduring the loss of labor rights and bargaining rights. They are called “precariat” workers, a group of workers who live on the verge of collapse due to the instability of the nature of their job…

GOP To Pick-off Remainder of Unions

The last bastion of organize labor is now on the west and east coasts, like New York City, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Labor has mostly given up on the south and the middle of the U.S., is that because unions aren’t up to the fight? We have lost Detroit, Michigan and Wisconsin, which was the start of public unions. These GOP government control states, like govenors Synder and Pence have kicked our union butts. In California, labor has lost all of the rural counties, Orange and San Diego counties; and now San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles counties are our last strong holds. It would not take a lot to lose California. California has elected GOP governors before and with our new federal government now in place and with the Koch brothers, et al, and their money it could be done again. We, union workers, could lose it all. They have started on teachers’ union and they are still trying to break the postal workers union by forcing the pension funds to be funded 75 years ahead of pa…

Gig Economy

The Gig con, which sells people on a more flexible job without fixed hours. This sounds enticing to workers fed up with their 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. jobs. Also, to people without jobs, and to people who have part-time jobs, and need more money. Gig jobs fill in many needs, but the rub is that these jobs or most of these jobs don’t pay into Social Security or Social Disability Insurance so when someone hits retirement age there is nothing to fall back on. Most have been told that Social Security will not have money for them because Social Security will be broke. This is a lie and a con job on the workers. Social Security will be OK if the federal government will keep its hands off the money we paid into it. They think it is their piggy bank. Then what if you get sick or injured on the Gig job, there is no healthcare. We know that we are running out of jobs here and worldwide. This is why we need the universal basic income and unions for all. At this time, the federal government estimates…
