14. Union bashing run amok
We have heard decades of unsubstantiated dogma that union members are lazy and produce inferior products. I am sure the propaganda was the work of rich-Republican America. Now it snapped back and will destroy a big part of the economy.

Then they will just make fun of the Rust Belt residents as they had displaced coal miners and transient Oakies.
