It is time to bring back the unions! The best economy the US had higher levels of unionized employees.

US workers need someway to push back at the multinational corporations, and gain some clout back.

Multinationals want US workers because so few of us are unionized, while in Europe, most of the countries have a unionized workforce.

With their national health care, and higher salaries, most Europeans, and Australia, and New Zealand, enjoy a higher standard of living than Americans.

There is no reason for Americans to have to put up with the workplace bullying from managers, and bosses. You have no recourse without union.

And in the states that bought the big lie and allowed, "right to work", for less, laws to be enacted, it is even worse.

Americans have been officially screwed, and we allowed it to happen. Wake up folks!

Call your local union and organize!

Unionize so they can bring in illegal aliens to take your job.
