Scott Walker And The Labor Unions
The Labor Unions Protest.
Wisconsin workers on the streets.
Soylent Green,is... People.and the Workers in Wisconsin That the Governor Wants to Strip Their Collective Bargaining Rights From, Is... Us, the Middle Class!!!
So Scott Walker has had several great accomplishments lately, first he has managed to mobilize a dormant and lethargic labor movement that realizes its very existence is in jeopardy,not only in Wisconsin but in all fifty states,with Wisconsin spearheading the attempt to demolish whatever is left of the powerful Labor Unions that lifted the working poor into the middle class, and therefore creating the most vibrant and largest by far economy on the planet.Second Scott Walker has made it perfectly clear to all who want to see that the issue was never about having the public employees contribute to their benefits or make economic concessions to help reduce the state deficit since the workers almost immediately agreed to these concessions but the governor Scott Walker's response was that there were no negotiations to be had except for the workers to agree for the Labor Unions to be terminated.Third , he has made it obvious that if you work for a living ,you put your eight to ten hours of hard work every day, you risk your life to contribute to the safety of your fellow citizens as is the case of firemen and police and you happen to earn more than minimum wage you are a greedy selfish bum that cares nothing about the economic well being of the state of Wisconsin and wish for it's bankruptcy.
Now the last point I would like to make is the fact that all these people that governor Scott Walker keeps trashing day in and day out on every talking head's show and Sly Fox news network IS US we are the middle class, we are the taxpayers there is no battle between taxpayers and workers we are both, and the way forward is not to drive the middle class into poverty its to move up in our economic capability and not down. Isn't it curious how the right wing nuts on the radio keep repeating that even the hint of raising taxes for the rich is anti american because they work hard for their riches and its their money and that's the american way to have as much as you can acquire through hard work and effort and intelligence(which I fully agree).But when it comes to workers or the middle class if they have wages that allow them a decent standard of living , say like autoworkers earning 28 to 70 dollars an hour, they will bring a whole industry down by their greed. or Public employees earning 18 000 to 100 000 dollars a year are the reason for budget deficits that will jeopardize our children's future?
