8. But Rahm wants to get us back to those Good Old Days:
"Before there were unions, there was no middle class. Working people didn't get to send their kids to college, few were able to own their own fucking home, nobody could take a fucking day off for a funeral or a sick day or they might lose their fucking job."

Rich people matte, and it's important to keep them happy because they're the ones with the big bucks to donate. Piddling amounts from the unions just can't match the kind of funding you can get from the corporations. Who needs a middle class, anyway? Who needs educated worker bees, or worker bees with their own hives, or worker bees that want days off from service to their masters? Worker bees should work and then they should die.
