53. The GOP with the help of free trade Democrats
have been heavily involved in union busting since at least the Reagan years. It really is about cheap labor more than anything else. As long as the large corporations control our government the working man is effectively screwed. My household income has been cut in half during the Bush years. They kept one promise. They cut my taxes. Because I no longer make enough money to pay very much in taxes. But of course I am still expected to be the good little consumer and spend what little I have left to keep these large conglomerates in business. Can you say 'depression.' It is hard to spend what you no longer make.
