Once a Wage Slave ...

Wage slaves want and need their share of the obscene profits that they have made for the 1%. The 1% may be the ones with the bank accounts, but the 1% would not have their wealth if not for the wage slaves who made the products that were sold to fill the 1%s’ coffers. We wage slaves are the ones who buy most of the goods being made or grown as food with this said we need to remind ourselves that wages have slipped or remained flat for four decades. One of the reasons unions have been slipping is because of a large fragmentation in the character of American liberalism. Labor must make progress with our wage-slave community and not at the expense of our non-union wage slaves. When union workers get a large wage increase we are blamed for inflation and high prices, which is in itself wrong for the more money made the more we spend and the more products must be made so more jobs and overtime, but we union must be able to explain and define this or we will become but an island of well-being in a sea of resentful, low wage slaves. This is why government union workers find it hard to get support from the private, low-wage slaves so to counter this we all unions must always keep in mind to extend a hand toward our brothers and sister wage slaves. When we are trying to take a step up and see if we can pull them up with us for as I wrote before the unions cannot afford to have the enemy in front of us and people behind us who are resentful of the income inequality. Now corporate management has renamed the wage slave workers to "worker associates" and "advisers" (bosses), but remember we, in their eyes, are still wage slaves and they will fight to keep down the workers. Knowing this it stands to reason it will be much easier for all wage slaves to rise together. No matter what politically correct name they give us, we will always be wage slaves to them.
