Fighting back

Walmart, fast food and now the New York car wash workers are demanding their worker rights and doing it by what is called a concerted effort, which is just two or more wage slaves demanding what they believe is owed to them, such as a living wage, safe working conditions, no distinction between race, age, sex orientation, religious beliefs and gender. This type of protest is enforced by the National Labor Relation Board and is supposed to keep the workers safe from retaliation from the money people. This is what the wage slaves should have done 20 years ago when the money people started shipping jobs out of the country to bust unions and when anti-union money people found that they could bluff the unions with threats of suing unions for their assets. A lot of unions started backing off radical organizing tactics and started walking a very thin line, which will never beat back the attack on labor. Now with this new labor movement they have no labor union or assets to protect. They just want their labor rights and a living wage so attorneys are of no use. All they have is local cops and there are unions which will give pro bono legal advice to the proletarian workers who are rising up. These workers have another advantage which is they do jobs that cannot be shipped overseas, and their wages are already on the bottom rung of the ladder. What the money people don’t seem to understand is that when people are put in a spot where there are no options left to survive they will fight the hardest to defend their families and their lives. Sun-tzu’s Art of War says you should never put your enemy in a position where there is no way to retreat or be able to have options and this is what the oligarchies have done to wage slaves, which was a big mistake and will bite them in the ass.

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…
