Pick A Side

There is no in between in this class warfare. You are either with the unions or against; you can’t be whatever’s convenient for your self-interest. The exploitation of the proletarians by the oligarchies, who are anti-union GOP capitalists, will lead to the proletarians’ demise. Even though some companies are slow walking the increase in minimum wage hoping that the proletarians will let down their demands for the $15 to $18 an hour. Capitalists should look at Lincoln’s statement on May 19, 1856 when he said, “Be not deceived. Revolutions do not go backward.” For the proletariats to understand their opponents better, I would suggest you read, The Prince, written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold onto power. The Haves with their arrogant opulence, its police, its courts—up to the Supreme Court, and its churches, claims of morality, law and order. These all secures the Haves’ status quo. But, the power of the Have Nots rests with their numbers. It has been said that the Haves, living under the nightmare of possible threats to their possessions and who are always faced with the question of when do we sleep; while the nightmare of the Have Nots is where do we sleep and when do we eat? In between the Haves and the Have Nots is a new group of the Used to Haves, who have now lost what little they had. This is sort of like a person who has lost their sight, but they remember what it was like to see and now cannot see and become bitter at the loss of their sight. In some cases, when this group finally figures out that it is not the government or president for their plight and realize that it is the Haves that that are to blame. When these people realize what happened to them they will grow the ranks of the Have Nots and Have Littles, and then we will be closer to the 99 percent. Right now there is still a gap between the 47 percent and the rest of us. The last group to join the Have Nots is the Have Littles or Want Mores. This is what is left of the diminished Middle Class. They are torn between upholding the status quo to protect the little they still have, yet wanting change so they can get more. They become split personalities. They want a safe way where they can profit by change and not risk losing the little they are holding onto. The proletariat wage slaves have got to think about how wars are won. You are either all in or all out, on one side or the other. There is no in between for you will be smashed by both sides if you are caught between the two forces coming together to battle. The winning side will be the proletariats because our numbers outnumber the oligarchies’.

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…
