Workers Need To Realize The Corporo-Business Mind Set Is That American Workers Are Too Expensive

Last edited Thu Feb 14, 2013, 04:19 PM - Edit history (1)

that business cannot do business if it pays a living wage in the US. The profits are earmarked for the CEO's and the management class. Your raises, your benefits, your pensions and your wages must be given to the upper crust. That reality is the new business culture in the US. The corporations have record profits and record cash they are sitting on.

That is the "new economic" order that the Reagan revolution was all about. What the American worker did not understand is that a "service economy" is fundamentally a "low wage" economy and an "insecure" job economy. It is all about being a servant economy for the upper classes.

By being anti labor and anti union it plays into their game plan to keep wages low and workers insecure. An economically starving worker will work for anything if desperate enough.

Obama can do what he wants, but business controls the situation and IS NOT COMMITTED to creating decent jobs. So unless workers elect progressive pro union legislators over monied conservatives NOTHING will change.

3. Workers are also viewed as

lazy and worthless if they are seen sharing a joke, taking a bathroom break or in any way trying to make their job a little better.

Corporations are desperate to return to the "Golden Age", because for them it was.

8. I Do NOt See Things Changing Unless Pro Labor Politicians Know They Can Win Elections - Right Now -

you cannot get an openly pro worker and pro union politician elected. We tried that in a local Colorado election and the main fundy church and GOPPERS in the district won overwhelmingly. As of now it is an un winnable representative seat in a working class suburb.
