  1. You know, for all the talk and action that most Republicans and some Democrats in office have taken against unions throughout in the United States over the past 40 years, for some reason they don’t seem to want to do anything regarding holding police unions accountable.

  2. LETS GOOOOOO!!! SOLIDARITY FOR THE WORKERS.

      Some entity that knows how to, PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:

      * Create a national non-profit organization that looks out for the interests of the American workers. Could even call it the ‘NEO’, National Employee’s Organization.
      * Model it after the AARP that looks out for the interests of older people.
      * Anybody would be allowed to join and/or support the organization and those that didn’t want to wouldn’t have to. It would not be a union but a non-profit organization.
      * I can foresee the ‘NEO’ eventually putting forward political candidates and supporting judges who are sympathetic to their cause. Given enough support, I can even foresee the Constitution of the United States being amended in a clear fashion that even Supreme Court Justices could only interpret one way.
      * It’s ‘We The People’ that truly make America great and it’s the ‘American worker’ who actually built America to be what it is.

      Rise up, unite in a national organization, and let’s take ‘our’ nation back for a better America and a better world.

      POWER TO THE PEOPLE !!! POWER TO THE EMPLOYEE’S !!! POWER TO THE NEO !!!

      * Note also: As this is my own idea, you have my permission to copy and paste this into your own files and/or elsewhere to help spread the word and to build consensus on making this idea a reality.

    The stock markets help to raise money for companies when they need capital to expand, and this in turn creates the potential for investors to make money on stocks. Investors can get help from experts who can guide prospective investors for the best. Investors need people like Joel D Ayers.

  9. I wish Amazon and Walmart would unionize too! Better yet, I wish there was a political party that supported workers instead of the corporations.

  19. Capitalism hasnt given you one damn thing, LABOUR HAS!!!

    • Jathin Emmanuel Joseph | January 5, 2021 at 12:14 PM | Reply

      Labour is rewarded because of the idea of private ownership. Private ownership enables the labour of individuals to bear fruits on the basis of the need for the particular skill in the economy.

      This is why people are not paid the same. Because, they have not expended equal amount of effort. Skills highly prized by the economy need time to cultivate, which is why individuals able to hone those skills are paid well.

    • The American Way : Socialism for government & corperations, capitalism for the poor.
