We Are the Change

We Have Nots wage slaves of the world must make changes ourselves. Hannibal said we will either find a way or make one. We can start by asking why, who and how. Asking these questions is the start of change. Some say it’s no coincidence that the question mark is an inverted plow, breaking up the hard soil of old believes and preparing for the new growth. Workers must have a plan for the working people that are for the good of the people. Remember when you start the war between the 1-2 percent and the 98-99 percent; the 99 percent need a starting point and a stopping point. How the war will be waged hopefully without destroying what we are fighting for. In President Lincoln’s First Inaugural, he said, “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government they can exercise their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it. The people who should take heed of the options of the masses and not keep taking away the peaceful options of the masses.” Like the U.S. Supreme Court voting against all labor cases, which comes before them, and state governments destroying labor unions. These types of actions are fast pushing the Have Nots to less and less options. The oligarchies should take a look at the Art of War on this strategy and how it can back fire on them. The people need to wake up the fact that the oligarchies are pitting poor against poor while they, the oligarchies fill their pockets. We must remember the war is just about money and power. It all goes back to money and all players want a full house before playing their hands. The odds are you will never start if you don’t take a chance. It is called gambling. All you can do is educate yourself, plan, know yourself, and know your enemy, as outlined in Art of War. Also, be willing to fight for a better life like that $15 to $18 an hour minimum wage could bring. You must be willing to fight for a free education, single-payer healthcare, a safe working environment and pensions. It is worth it. Remember, power has always derived from two main sources, money and people lacking money. The Have Nots must build power from their own flesh and blood.

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…
