Strategies: Use Them

The strategy of the GOP oligarchies is to control the governments from the local level to the state to the federal level and the U.S. Supreme Court. Their biggest and most effective weapon is money, which they have the most of, and everyone knows, unfortunately, money equals power. The 99 percent working people have more people than the 1 percent, which means the Have Nots have their own kind of power. The people’s only chance to add money to their strategy is through unions and their members paying dues and this is why the GOP is so hell bent on destroying the means of unions collecting dues from union members. Using tactics like Right to Work laws in states and laws that let workers be in a union without paying dues, yet receiving all the union benefits. So the union members who do pay their dues are supporting the benefits of the non-paying members. It is easy to see how this is working out for the money strategy on both sides—union and GOP. Right to Work has nothing to do with the right to work, it is just about money, and workers not having to pay dues, which would give unions some money to add to their only power—people. This is one of the reasons for the $15 to $18 an hour minimum wage increase needs to happen. Not only would this be good for the workers and boost the consumer-driven capitalist economy system, which spending represents about 67 percent. It would also bring more union members into the people’s fold to increase the people and money for a better chance of winning the inequality war between the Have Alls and Have Nots. You must understand yourself and understand your enemy. Remember this prime truth that all evil is caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. Power also comes from organization of people who have religious ideas and want power to propagate their beliefs. They form a church of people to follow their political ideas and want the power to put them into practice. They organize and call it a religion, but it’s really a political party. Organization equals people which equals power which equals money which equals winning. The $15 to $18 an hour minimum wage, free education, free healthcare and hopefully a pension for when you’re old and worn from making money for the 1 percent. Can you see why the oligarchies do not want you to have all these things? If you had all this, not only would it close the inequality gap, but it would also make you independent from their abuses as your boss.

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…
