Log in to Reply Ozinator September 3, 2011 Open a paper and go to the Labor section…it’s right after the Financial section…it’s not there??? Oh that’s right, that would be against the corporate media’s interests. The corporate media constantly runs the myth that “economic impact” means something great for everyone. jobs Feritita says? the idea behind organizing is that the worker gets a say in the share of the profits that HE MADE from HIS output and he can’t do this on his own. labor in essence is stolen from the worker who is forced to beg for the privilege to produce more than they consume with nothing to show for it while the manipulators of the gilded class buy another private jet. The joke is that at no other time in history has the worker been so confused into thinking organizing was bad. penniless debt slaves actually cheer these fukers on. Amazing Log in to Reply kill666 September 3, 2011 Unions harassing companies? employees having political power? people using the money their earn Working on wherever they want? what?? that is nonsense LMAO, so i guess cats eats dogs now.

Log in to Reply Buster Hymen September 3, 2011 Ozinator, You are full of shit. Zuffa employees can organize into the union at any time. I was forced into a union at a young age… join or lose my job. They took thousands from me in 3 short years. They made promises that when I transferred to SoCal for school that they would get me placed with my perfect work record. They lied. They only take care of the old dogs. The new members can go **** themselves. That is how unions in the U.S.A. roll anymore. What I found out later is the non-union counterparts were making $3-$5 more dollars an hour too. The unions are nothing more than a branch of the Democratic Party and this goes even more so for public unions. It is a bilking of the tax payer dollar. The flow is direct. Tax Payer $$ >> Government >> Public Union Employee >> Public Union >> Democratic Party They are the largest donor to the Democrats in the U.S. New York Unions are keeping everyone in the state from benefiting. Screw them in the neck. Log in to Reply Ozinator September 3, 2011 Busted Hymen, Your poor understanding of your own situation is exactly what I’m talking about. No disrespect to your plight but using it as an anecdotal for why Unions suck isn’t an accident; You were supposed to come to that conclusion Unions from the OUTSIDE have been marginalized, infiltrated, co-opted, corrupted and bastardized in meaning since the beginning, but now that the workers in them are so distracted and brainwashed by the efforts of the robber barons, corporatists and bankers shaping their opinions threw the media—- they blame the concept of organizing instead of the villains who are making this landscape. So yeah, the little kunts getting under table payoffs from the corporations to NOT strike and to actually let the unions die, are merely the payees. Look a little higher for who is REALLY screwing you. BTW, I wasn’t talking about the UFC fighters who don’t get paid their worth….I was commenting on the culinary union doing what the fuc they are SUPPOSED to do to protect their members. You’d call them liars if they didn’t Log in to Reply Ozinator September 3, 2011 “through” heheh Log in to Reply paddedummy September 9, 2011 Capitalist jewish pig posing as an italian doesn’t want his other employees in a union anymore than he wants his fighters in one. Instead of paying them properly to begin with the bloodsucker can F them over by making them work more, kiss his ass and jump through hoops just like DW wanted Diaz to. If GSP hates the pointless press conferences as much as Diaz, he shouldn’t do them either. Filming him spending that time training instead would accomplish the same thing promotion wise by enabling GSP to actually finish a fight. Fertita is so full sh1t, as if the few employees of his company would have the same negotiating power as the entire culinary union. Both the corrupt union leaders and the corporatists are “REALLY” screwing Buster Hymen over because capitalism and marxism are just 2 sides of the same shekel Log in to Reply paddedummy September 9, 2011 It’s impossible to seem like you are screwing your fighters in comparison to what you are making if you are comparing yourself to boxing promoters Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
