Forum Post: Fighting Unions, Out in India

Libe(R)topians and their desire for control is Worldwide, as I've said before.

Unions are at the very top of the community based ideology that they spend lives and money fighting.

Some unions, fight back just as hard.

I get your sentiment. Unions are even a more taboo subject than politics itself when it comes to the good ol' US of A. US? Does that stand for "United(?)" States? If you work for any corporate or private business enterprise, best keep your mouth shut. If you're in any shop or business that's non-union, best not speak of it. If even ex-union members talk them down, what can you say? Further what do union execs do to attract members in a public forum? Nothing. What business would openly support unions? And people that are in unions act as if they're in a special club, (at least the ones I've met). In the meantime, there's been such a battle mounted against them from the 70s and beyond, the fact that any are surviving is a miracle. I think unions and their members need to be more vocal if they want support and they need to show their gratitude as well.

Union members are in a "special club." It's called, 'The Strength in Unity Club.' Our job is to convince people, whether they are union or not, that they are one of the few entities that can help in reversing our down-ward spiral.

What gratitude is it that you would like them to show and for what?

[-] 1 points by nazihunter (317) 7 months ago

It's not what I'd like that I'm speaking of. I'm merely putting out some thoughts that might help them gain more traction. I am speaking of myself when I tell of experiences with union members and people who speak against them. Unions, (I believe), need the help and support of people who are not union to survive. To that extent, they should be gracious.

How long have we been doing this? Two years?

And yet, when the dingalings here repeatedly stated, "I just wish the unions fought for everybody", where were you? That was a fantastic opportunity for you to step up and demonstrate something similar then.

Well in that case, I offer apologies. I only have time to act as a part-time cheerleader. If OWS would coordinate with their locals on issues, I would offer more support and contribute to their activities.

No, you wouldn't,

Was that pro or con?

At any rate, I found this to be an example of libe(R)tarianism in other parts of the World, as well as an example of workers in other nations attempting to unionize.

It's the kind of thing that gets ZERO effective COVERAGE, here in the US.

It was pro. Capitalism is failing because of wage disparities, poverty and the absence of living wages. Billionaires like the Kochs are spoiled babies. Their behavior needs extreme modification. I applaud your efforts to that extent.

[-] 1 points by nazihunter (317) 7 months ago

It sure does. We need to start taking names and making wanted posters to put out on the people doing this. Just who are the people that made this decision and why? Judges receive nice paychecks, work short hours and get generous pensions. But, if they could get payoffs, consulting deals, etc., why should they vote on behalf of the workers? That's they only reason I could think of why they would want to vote in a backward-19th century manner. Give me the names of the offenders and I'll make wanted posters for my blog.

Their names will be here.

Don't know for sure, but it sounds and works, just like all the other ALEC attacks on class action suits.

These judges should be called out, and put out of a job.

Since they made tarring and feathering illegal..................:)

[-] 2 points by nazihunter (317) 7 months ago

Yes, we need to start a great compiled list of fools that need to be put on wanted posters.

[-] 0 points by Builder (4202) 7 months ago

It's probably less work to compile a list of those in Congress who don't need to be put on wanted posters.

[-] 0 points by AlwaysIntoSomething (42) 7 months ago

Lead it off with any high ranking politician that accepted corporate money from the corporations that make up the board at ALEC.

India only counts, when it's anti Monsanto stuff?

Sad.

Where's all those "I'm not anti union" people now?

Posting about events in the US 100 years ago!

This is happening now, and it's not all that different.

EDIT:

How about Thailand then?

Can you make Thailand count?

Yep. They run like little bitches to the gardens. But, you knew that. It's even funnier listening to all the third party numnuts.

[-] -1 points by shooz (17787) 7 months ago

I like how they run away from issues on the Occupy network.

I've posted many and got little response from the remaining members of the "soap opera".

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 7 months ago

They run from anything. But, here's the deal.

I'm getting ready to give them something to cry about in a minute.

They like to poke at you and put words in your mouth and make all kinds of insinuations, and when you react, they get all indignant.
