The American worker only gained a decent life by one method.. STRIKES.
And they were not peaceful. The picket lines were forceful things. Scabs couldn't get through, and those that slipped through were followed home and
they didn't/couldn't make it back the next day. the keeping out of SCABS while on strike is THE WHOLE IDEA!! if strikers allow other people to
scab the work, what is the point? The nation has been brainwashed into thinking that a strike was just a bunch of people sitting around with "honk if
you support us" type signs while the workplace was still humming along.
The police wouldn't interfere with the strikers back then, after the people beat them to bloody pulps for interfering with their livlihood (re:
LIFE). The early days of the labor movement were VERY BLOODY and VIOLENT.
Until Hundreds quit bowing down to Dozens, this will not change.
Also, the other part is the actual SCABS.. mostly, immigrants are the modern day scabs! if the MILLIONS of them were NOT HERE, the employers would be
FORCED to PAY more or else nothing gets done. The scabs have done a GREAT amount of damage to the middle class through lowering wages, stealing jobs,
and pushing up rents.,, for this reason, I have and never will befriend and immigrant. they are mooching off the backs of my ancestors AND ruining
wages and stealing jobs, AND over burdening MY countries social services.
There it is. The ELites are feeding off us every time we purchase something, a portion of what we pay goes directly to their pockets.
1. every workplace needs to go on strike and ENFORCE the picket lines ensuring NOONE scabs the work.
2. run EVERY illegal and their anchor babies out of the nation
3. let the police know that no longer are the strikers gonna be pushed around
4. I guarantee that if the three things above are administered with discipline things will improve within WEEKS!
this is the recipe, too bad MANY are ignorant to the REAL labor movement in the decades past.
