"Right to Work" a LFR Rant. [View all]

Note to Readers= This is in an editorial vein of writing. It is her thoughts on the subject. For those that disagree, she looks forward to your PM's.

"Right to Work"?
More like "Right to Enslave"! The only winners are the corporations. People now get to work for whatever the business is willing to pay. Usually minimum wage. And those that work for just that can tell you that it is not a living wage.

Once a state goes to "Right to Work" they will see businesses come in, but they will see more people needing help. Case in point, Walmart. Person needs a job, they get hired by Walmart, thy have to take what they give or leave it. There is always another desperate person who needs work. They people who get jobs at Walmart's, as we have seen, needs help because the money is not enough to keep going.

Now that is just one business (and yes there are other with the same business plan). When right to work comes in, others that didn't work that way now can. Now, people are selling themselves short just to have some sort of a job. They end up working harder for less pay. Why? There is always someone else desperate to have what little hope a job can give.Which means you have to work 3 times as hart to keep them happy with you or they just get someone else.

That is why I use the term "Right to Enslave". The "Have" and "Have not" way we are now are living in is built for this. And this is why the Middle Class is dieing. It is also why many do not dream anymore. They see no point, they are "Have not".

What have we done to ourselves? What are we doing to ourselves? It is not a new thing. It has been coming to this for a while. It is like the frog experiment. You place the frog in boiling water it will jump out, you place in cool water it will stay. You slowing turn up the heat, the frog cooks. We are the frogs. We are getting cooked. Many still don't see it.

So now what? That is the hardest part of it. We can live with this new Noble and peasant lifestyle that has developed, or we can start fighting back. People have started this. They still need backup. They need us to put the heat to the powers that be. We need to stop being cooked and start cooking. The next move must be ours. If not, we better learn to stop dreaming, stop being people and put up with what little we are given. What are you going to do?
