Employer Voter Intimidation
Nonunion employers’ feel they own their wage slaves and today it is the same as it was in the 1800s when the boss lined up the wage slaves and marched them to the polling places to cast their vote and told the employees who to vote for. If they did not vote the way the employers dictated they would be fired. Another insult that wage slaves were not paid for that day. Here it is, the 2012 election, and the employers are using this same tactic: coal miners marched out and made to stand behind a GOP presidential candidate and told to donate to the candidate’s campaign and weren’t paid for the time they had to stand behind that candidate. Companies are many who force their workers to do what they want even when the wage slaves are on their own time. The employers tell or have the slaves sign contracts that dictate what the employee can say or write on social network sites or letters to newspapers, agreeing not to join a union or dropping out of a union in order to get a job with a company. So if all workers were in a union, this could not happen and the workers of the world are starting to show lots of unrest, for example Walmart in our country and in countries, such as China, Greece, Italy, Africa and Spain. The sad thing is that in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Clayton Antitrust Act, our Magna Carta of labor. For the first time the wage slaves could form unions, strike, picket and boycott employers. But as time passed the law has been weakened by numerous state laws and this election, 2012, there is an antiunion measure on the California ballot to strip away our right to collect union dues to fight for good jobs and wages. Vote no on Proposition 32. This proposition was put on the ballot by ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, which is funded by the Chamber of Commerce and nonunion companies: Walmart, Home Depot, Target and many more. So do you think that you are not or have ever been a wage slave? If not, you will be if we do not stop the antiunion money people.
