This country has become a self-centered, consumer-oriented society...no-deposit, no-return. For the past 30 years the rich have been glorified and making money is a virtue...no matter how it's made. If you made it off the backs of someone else...so be it...sucks to be them. We've applauded corporate greed as "progress" and allowed the corporates to frame the lexicon regarding the economy.
Yes...I find the term "job creators" as highly offensive as that 1%'er probably made most of his/her money offshoring or "consolidating"...not creating jobs but eliminating them and have the US government pick up the tab. They shirk taxes and have beaten down the middle class to obsolence.
It's long overdue for the labor movement to re-energize...for workers to show solidarity and for unions to reach out to the disenfranchised...
