All of you should be forming unions.

Getting organized is how you will grow political consciousness.

Stop voting Democrat, and issue political demands directly.

With your foot on the neck of the 1%, you'll get concessions for abortion, gay rights, environmental protections, etc.

And then you'll be organized enough to go take over the DNC.

Maybe. But right now it's time to binge Obi-Wan.

That's why I'm just focused on getting rich for myself.

You should be boycotting Disney (along with Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and everything else).  I do!  I don't watch that crap.

You won't get what you want until you threaten the capitalist economy.

But Americans are a labor aristocracy... you live in relative comfort off wealth extracted by imperialism.

So good luck sucking the taint of a fascist theocracy (put there by capitalism to make your lives even worse).

Maybe there's comfort for you in the afterlife?

A union for cosplay characters?  I think maybe you all take yourselves a little too seriously.  It's a game, not a job.  If it is, you chose that and I don't give a fark what you get paid.

I don't get paid for dressing up like a hiker and hitting the woods either.  If thousands of city-dwellers suddenly decide that they're Hiking Heritage, and they should be paid for putting on a thousand dollars of outdoor gear and walking down a trail with a covered wagon, should I care? We should honor it.  It's their heritage.

The culture of narcissism strikes again.  On-line porn is popular too.  Doesn't mean that I have to support it.  Try doing something that actually matters, and I'll support you.  Being popular with the hordes of constantly bored mega-consumers isn't something that's worth my support, no matter how special you think you are.

Having a union doesn't give you that, nor should it.
The point is to establish a healthy mutual relationship where nobody has a foot on anyone's neck, and both parties have a firm grip on each other's balls, and a mutual desire not to hurt one another.

Considering the 1% had explicitly proved their desire to hurt everyone not them I am fine with stepping on their throats.

Considering the need for more security to deal with drunk patrons and serious risks from stunt injuries I can understand why they want to Unionize.

Uh - okay. Not sure what that means in the context of response to what I said, but, whatever.
At any rate, everyone should support unions - they are better for everyone, in the long run.

You suggested a mutual respect standpoint with goodwill from both parties.

Which would be a poor choice for anyone in a union since the 1% has explicitly shown a complete lack of goodwill and a malicious desire towards the worker.

As such the worker should go for the throats, because anything less is dumb.

But yes, all except police unions should be supported. Police unions are not unions, they are gangs.

We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune! We're taking turns to act as a sort of executive-officer-for-the-week. But all the decisions *of* that officer 'ave to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting by a simple majority, in the case of purely internal affairs...But by a two-thirds majority, in the case of more major.....

It's dinner theater. People chose to eat the food they cooked for them and the performers provide a show. So yeah its a job and they deserve to be paid and treated fairly for it.

Their first demand is a return to having off the 80 church mandated holy days every year along with Sundays?
