Thanks for that info. And you bring up a great point. Labor does attempt to organize, but there are ruthless forces dead set against it.

Much of this traces back to our country and the corporatists who run it, so the American people do have a role to play. We have to change that role from passive consumer to active protectors of labor anywhere the multinationals setup shop.

Getting the money out of politics would possibly get it done. The politicians, the ones we'd elect anyway, could/would end this whole system of labor exploitation if they weren't dependent on campaign contributions from the multinationals.

Other course of action (boycotts, occupations, citizen to citizen worker alliances with other nations, etc.) are also worth pursuing.

We can't let this stand, no way, it's an evil system that knows only environmental destruction, inhumane working conditions, and obscene profits for those at the top.
