The cultlike belief among America's exploited that they are actually temporarily embarrassed millionaires is the greatest gift crony capitalists could ever have asked for, and one they are delighted to fuel.


I'll never forget an anecdote my friend's dad told me. A union rep tried to tell him "we're trying to protect you from the company," and he said "I am the company!"

Anyway, Union Pacific laid him off several years ago, despite record profits.

This is precisely one of the problems with unions for me: instead of being able to simply negotiate my own contract with my employer, I have to participate in union meetings and be part of the union crowd to have a strong voice in the terms of my employment. It's another layer of bureaucracy and politics that I don't need.

So I have mixed feelings about unions. I like the idea of evening the negotiation power between employer and employed a great deal. The problem is unions as organizations get subverted into other things. Police unions come to mind particularly but pretty much all of them have had issues with organized crime, protecting the lowest denominator employee and making it hard for rising stars to actually rise (becomes a time in service game, not fact you're greatest talent in the building).  It leaves me conflicted in that I really want the benefits they bring but some of the detriments are just dangerous.

Sure lets unionize all the things... after we adjust a bit just what a union means and is in America.

It is high time Democrats remind the lower-middle and tradesfolk that they are their friends.

There are many economic opportunities in the modernization of our infrastructure that will be possible, if the Senate will cooperate.

Wouldn't a nationwide program of wind-farms to provide a part of the power we eat every day be a good thing?

That's a lot of linesmen jobs, a lot of shop jobs and a farking shiat-ton of electrical maintenance jobs.

Combine that with heavy investment of rural areas for cannabis cultivation and maybe some of the legitimate pinch rural America feels will relax enough for them to start articulating what they think will fix the "farking everything" that is broken there.

Because that's the problem. I honestly don't understand what is wrong in that part of America, despite the fact I grew up in that part of America. It's real farked is all I can gather from my extended family, who stayed.

the money is in the banana stand: austerity101: UNIONIZE EVERYTHING

I can't afford a plumber to fix my toilet because of union rates! The government should pay for my toilet to get fixed.


Sounds more like you're butthurt because, thanks to a union, someone else has a job that pays a living wage. It's not the plumber's fault that your McJob pays dick, and you can't afford to get those Big Mac shiats unclogged.

"President-elect Joe Biden is expected to push to make it easier for workers to unionize and hold employers accountable for working conditions, a sharp U-turn from the business-friendly employment policies pursued by President Donald Trump" every single Republican since the party started.

I can't think of any Republican who has not tried to or managed to take power and rights away from workers for the past 100 years. Certainly since WWII, labor has been getting pushed off the cliff. Republicans know how to keep the boot on.

And there's this hilarious bit at the end:

Scabby the Rat

The fate of the snarling inflatable rats that often show up at picket lines as a symbol of labor strife could depend on the composition of the NLRB.

The agency is considering whether to crack down on their use, which the NLRB's Trump-appointed general counsel has argued is unlawful under the National Labor Relations Act and not protected by the First Amendment because the rats are used to "menace, intimidate and coerce."


Protests with rat-shaped balloons? Scary! Terrible! Ban 'em! No First Amendment for you!

Protests with loaded guns and death threats? Freedom! Mah rights! Shall not be infringed!

What a bunch of snowflakes.

Compromise? Give the balloon rats guns. Everybody wins!

starsrift: In the US, the only thing more remarkable than the effort to disdain public health care is the de-legitimization of unions. It really is honestly and truly amazing how corporations, buying politicians, have ensured that blue collar workers will vote against their best interests again and again, year after year, decade after decade.


The cultlike belief among America's exploited that they are actually temporarily embarrassed millionaires is the greatest gift crony capitalists could ever have asked for, and one they are delighted to fuel.
