Our war was began with slavery. Once employers realized that not only could they profit from their business and product, but also from the pockets of
those that they employ, it's been a problem. There has been an ongoing war with employers since the first act of employment. We currently live in a
society where slavery is not only practiced, but encouraged by the same standards that are supposed to protect us.
I'll give you a hint, if you work and just make enough money to pay for rent and food, your a slave, there isn't any nice way to hide it. Employers
have been not only allowed but encouraged to run our slaves into the ground. It's so bad that most people that work for entry wages also qualify to
be fed through food stamps from the state. Walmart is a big offender, our tax dollars are going to walmart to support their poor wage pay outs.

Just to show you how much the greed can affect on you. I remember years ago when we had a spike in our employment. This was followed with a dip.
People were getting laid off, and they were filing for unemployment because it paid better than a minimum wage job. In a way, people were striking.
The employers struck back by cutting all hours so that they no longer have to pay into an unemployment fund, it was just an easy way to be greedy.
The problem is that the greed started way back when you took the job, they didn't pay you enough to afford anything other than rent and food, what
about the other things in life you need like health insurance, car insurance, a car, the electric bill, gas for the car. They demand we show up
everyday, on time to our shift because we are important, we just aren't important enough to pay a decent wage to.
Obama raised the minimum wage, and what followed was an immediate hike in the cost of everything around us. Business owners refuse to allow their
profit margins to be toyed with, even if it means paying the employees a crapy wage. This is why Obama forced health care, we are worth it, and we do
deserve it, in fact we deserve so much more, but its just a start. We live in a shaky time, and I agree it's big mess.
There are petitions from all 50 states wanting to secede from the united states. It's only a small amount of people, but basically its the
republicans or business owners wanting to seperate from the union so that they can take their slaves and do how they see fit with them.
