GOP Usurping Laws of the Land

The Have Nots Used to Haves and Have Littles fight for opportunity and wage inequality has a new threat. The GOP has found a way to take away the courts, which could rule in favor of the little people or in favor of a labor disagreement. How? By usurping the laws of the land. Just take a look at what Kansas Governor Sam Brownback told his state Supreme Court that if they did not rule the way he wants he will stop funding for the entire court system. If the people think they can use their vote to rectify this atrocity think again. Brownback is one step ahead of the proletariats. He just passed a law that gives Secretary of State Kris Kobach the power to prosecute whoever he thinks has committed voter fraud even if they did not. This is just to send a message that if a voter has any doubt about their voter identification to vote this will stop a lot of potential voters from even going to the polls. The GOP in other states are watching and will probably try the same thing. So this is why workers trying to start unions should just try to form workers unions and stay away from 100 percent vote and just take who wants to join and pay dues then will be protected under the concerted effort law, which means if two people or one person says the word “we” as in “we would like a raise” or some safety thig taken care of, the worker cannot be disciplined or fired. It is time to change for our country of laws are starting to be a joke when politicians can threaten the courts, and people with money can walk with good lawyers and make bail, which nonunion poor people do not have the means for either.

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…
