Challenge the Establishment with Your Mobile Phones

We, wage slaves, need to start using our mobile phones, laptops and desk computers to better our lives economically and not just to visit social media sites or to play games. All—young and old wage slaves alike—must set aside some time each day to try to help our sister and brother toilers of the world, such as sending messages or starting Twitter trend or bombarding their website with protest messages to the Iranian government demanding the release of the trade unionists being held in prison for fighting for their civil rights to have a union bus company. The names of the union activists are: Davood Razavi, Ebrahim Madadi, and Mahoud Salehi. These toilers need to know they are not alone in the world. And in Budapest, Hungary, union leader Lazlo Benko was fired by a multinational transportation company, Hödlmayr International. We, toilers, need to send a message to the corporations that the world knows what they are doing. We need to show our disdain and outrage to the Kentey Manufacturing corporation, a rubber slipper factory, which had bars installed on their two-story factory and no safety equipment that led to the deaths of 72 workers in a fire. It took five hours to put the fire out. We need to help the small country of Macedonia; the people are taking to the streets to take on their leader of nine years. He wants a tenth term in office, but the citizens are tired of him wiring tapping them, and his corrupt practices and want him to step down. This is just greed over lives. Use the technology that you have and show you care and support these people and their families. Remember, this is a class war between the Haves and the Have Nots. Just in the U.S. an average chief executive officer makes 373 times more than the average worker. So like a television show host, Ed Schultz, says “Get your cell phones out and go to work.” We have the power and the technology to turn around the anti-union, anti-worker assault on the people by the world’s oligarchies. Here in the U.S., we still need our $15 to $18 an hour minimum wage, healthcare and pensions in order to get off government assistance.

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…
