This could be the average worker for any American company in the last 20 years. Since deregulation (Thanks millions Ronnie!) American businesses have
been bought, sold and scuttled to increase the bottom line for the investor and corporate raider class. It has allowed the consolidation of every
industry in to a few hands and destroyed any sense of competition. It has made the creation of new businesses nearly impossible as these mega
corporations get endless tax breaks and unfair advantages through their paid army of lobbyists.
You can work your butt off for years, take forced pay cuts and reductions in benefits, endless amounts of crap from management people who know nothing
about the actual business but only look at numbers and they will still throw you out in the cold for a few dollars more in profits. Eventually, there
is no more profit left to be made as poor management practices have destroyed the very thing that gave them their wealth. No biggie for them - they
can write it all off as losses and when liquidation time comes they are first in line with their hands out to get every last penny before the workers
who actually did everything get anything except a pink slip and maybe a "we're so sorry".
The middle class is dying for the very reasons this man is describing. It is class warfare and the workers are the losers in this fight. We would all
be as furious as this man is if we were to squarely face the reality of what has happened to American industry. Without jobs we have no future - only
complete dependency upon government for everything.
