Inequality: Worldwide Scourge

Inequality is the scourge of the U.S. and the world. Just ask French economist Thomas Piketty, or U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen or many intelligent business leaders, and they will tell you that inequality is at its highest in a hundred years. Inequality is the Ebola of the capitalist system, which bleeds out the 99 percent so the 1 percent can continue to make its obscene profits. Just like Ebola, the capitalist system and its inequality is spreading worldwide and it is or will affect everyone if not stopped. When the proletarians have no money to buy the services and goods that the wage slaves produce then the unemployment grows, which puts a larger burden on government. The government has less money because there are fewer taxpayers at every level. Inequality is a black hole, which will get deeper and larger until it sucks all and everyone into it bringing along with it frustrations, fear and uncertainty, and this is where the breeding grounds are created for the groups like the Islamic State (ISIS or ISISL), Al Qaeda, the Ku Klux Klan and other fringe hate groups that reign with terror. The common core that ultimately leads disenfranchised people to these hate groups is inequality. However, inequality is the one thing the 99 percent can change by forcing the money hoarders to part with some of their cash and this is done by forcing a $15 to $18 an hour minimum wage, close all the loopholes that allow them to bank offshore like Ireland did, make the 1 percent and all the corporations pay their fair share in government taxes, provide for a free education, fix our broken healthcare system to a single payer system, and provide pensions. The wage slaves must stay connected worldwide, sharing their Intel and their strategies, which, if done thoroughly and consistently, will make it hard for the greedy 1 percent to run an undeveloped country to rape and pillage the country’s workers with their low wage-unsafe work conditions, or to hide their money. The wage slaves must expose and chase the rich wherever they go. The proletariats now have new technology and should use every aspect of it, even small drones at protests for Intel on the law enforcement and build clearinghouses or databases on what is working and what is not working. Another thing to keep the 1 percent off balance would be to change leaders quickly and often, and mix up the genders of the leaders. For most law enforcement agencies are led by men who think alike. There are not many female 1 percent leaders or law enforcement leaders so their strategies and tactics would work because it would be a foreign concept to most of the male-centered thinking. Also, there is no such thing as a secret any more. Spies and infiltrators is a common thing so now the tactics should focus on speed to hit and run, the old guerilla warfare, examine their weaknesses and devise ways to capitalize on them, move place to place, have many plans, be flexible to change up the plans if need be to meet the demands of the present situation. Lastly, is education about our history, have many plans; keep in mind the 1 percent are listening so use this knowledge to your advantage (as outlines in the Art of War). Gaining a minimum wage of at least $15 to $18 an hour [which has proven successful by The Container Store, which pays its employees $50,000 a year and is thriving] will be a big victory in the states for turning back the scourge of inequality.

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…
