4. Power is given, never taken.

And by power I mean leadership.

Those who take power for uncivilized reasons, is soon removed.

How soon depends on how much pain and suffering those who giveth will taketh away.

Not only is our country misled, so is our planetary home. It is time to restore our civilization.

5. Why do they teach Economics in school and not Labor History? We owe all the benefits that

all workers enjoy today to unionist years ago and their allies...the Democratic party .

6. Wasn't unemployment insurance something the communists, not unions, brought?


It was their idea in the first place, brought here to organize among the growing unemployed. They did years of organizing, street marches, a 1+ million signature petition delivered to Congress by the American Communist Party, with a promise to have people to show up if they were ignored, planted the idea and did more organizing before it ever came about. Unions only picked it up after the fact.

It's a nice poster, just curious.

7. Farm labor rights. Not in my neck of the woods.

 

We still have a long way to go. Imagine if fundamentalists who waste absurd amounts of time trying to dehumanize gays spent more time trying to do the same to those who would exploit farm workers. The fundamentalist right and the secular left together slew the Social Gospel. It must be revived.
