That is absolutely correct, if you're a worker and you strike here in America you're just a damned communist according to anyone NOT in a union.
Europe is heavily dependant on public transportation, only a handful of cities would feel the impact if all public transportation in America stopped.
Destroy the unions and keep the workers down, that way they can't strike and the capitalists can still make money.
When strikes occur in America they only seem to reflect poorly on the worker. "They're just too lazy!", "They think they deserve more for doing
the same job!"
There are a LOT of people in America who would be happy to do away with the welfare benefits the states and country provide the citizens. In Europe
such ideas cause riots.
The United States is the only industrialized nation that doesn't mandate paid vacation time for workers.
The United States is the only industrialized nation that makes people pay for health care.
Why is it Europeans are willing to fight for benefits but Americans seem only willing to fight to take them away?
