Jobs are defined differently by Corporate America and working Middle Class and Poor Americans. Just think about it?
Jobs to Corporate America are considered “costs that reduce profits”!
Jobs to Labor is survival and “feeding my family”!
This, my dear Americans, is the facts of life and what control of government is all about; the U.S. Supreme Court decision, in “Citizens United”, meant that now, dollars not votes, will control America, and now America became a plutocratic oligarchy; that is to say, that in our America, dollars and profits, outweigh desperation, poverty, and starvation of workers to provide for their families.
Too many of America’s workers, today, have been convinced by their employers that secretaries are not “labor”, they are elitist management; and “secretaries” are no longer great secretaries, they are actually lower management and “Administrative Assistants”.
And computer programmers are no longer computer programmers but they are instead, “Engineers”; and Administrative Assistants and Engineers are no longer labor, they are part of management, not paid wages, but are “on contract”, and not entitled to be in a labor union or entitled to Collective Bargaining. Management employees are “above” labor, unions, and collective bargaining!
Teachers are no longer working teachers, working for annual wages based on a 40 hour work week, they are “professionals” with a “contract” to School Boards made up of doctors, lawyers, and business owners and expected to work 24 hours a day for the length of their annual Contract!
Personally, after being a public school teacher my entire life, I discovered that I was not labor, I was a “professional” and paid by annual contract and not wages; my first year as a “professional teacher”, I made less money than I made the previous year when I made wages as a “clerk typist” worker. God works in mysterious ways!
America is no longer “God bless American and the working man and woman”, it is now God damn America’s plutocratic oligarchy, they rule and labor loses. The average wage keeps going down, down, down, the ranks of poverty increase every day, and corporate profits are at a record high.
Furthermore, American workers have been bamboozled by corporate America and their drone politicians, to believe that the world is now a “Global Economy”, and Corporate America will “create jobs” by eliminating “American protective tariff”, so products made by American workers can be “exported” easier to foreign lands who need those products; it is a lie!
What is now exported are American’s jobs to places like China and Mexico where there is “cheap Labor”, no labor unions, and no collective bargaining, and no working Middle Class.
There is no Global Economy. With NAFTA, it is American employers moving to Mexico just over the border like the Polaris Company, to manufacture products like snowmobiles to sell to Americans, using cheap Mexican labor to produce them, paying no tariff, and paying no American corporation tax. Workers like those of Polaris become unemployment statistics.
Today’s inequity in income, in America, has created a 21st Century Feudal System; we have no Middle Class workers today, America has only two classes, “Peasants” and “Corporate Lords”.
Today the Republican and Democratic Party extremist has eliminated Labor Unions and the Middle Class workers have become a poverty Statistic.
The Middle Class workers were created in Medieval Times by the Labor Unions (Guilds); today, labor unions are being eliminated by American politicians.
America is governed by a plutocratic oligarchy, elections and candidates are bought and sold.
The liberal progressive working Middle Class and Poor, do not vote because they have no candidates that represents them; there are only Democratic and Republican candidates financed by Corporate America, who buy the elections and own the censored, prime-time news media.
Why did working Americans not vote in 2016? They had no candidate who represented their needs! The American Presidential Election had two candidates, both of whom are obligated to Wall Street.
