How did we enable the Republicans and some Democrats to destroy the effectiveness of Unions as justice, domestic tranquility, general welfare, liberty in the fabric of our country frayed?
The fabric of our country has been frayed because it is falling into the hands of corporations, elitists and those who simply want to destroy the middle class. These oligarchs can only succeed if we stop fighting against them. Those who still care must stand together to preserve the values in which we believe.
My dad, who recently passed away, was a union construction man for his whole adult life, so when I caught a showing of the local AFL-CIO convention held in Washington state - still a strong union state..so far- I was intrigued by a speaker who explained some new things happening in communities to beat the corporate nonsense - companies where labor and management have an equal role in how the company operates and work together to better the business. I know the Germans have something similar. I've also seen and heard of various companies around the country that have alternatives to the corporate pyramid. I think it would be a great idea to focus on, promote and encourage these kind of enterprises.
