If you still have a job, you're probably noticing that you haven't had a pay raise in a long time. The price of almost everything that we need for everyday life has jumped up like crazy, making life a struggle to survive for working families and people on a fixed income.
Corporations are lucky in that they can give themselves unlimited pay raises by raising the prices of the products they manufacture or sell. When bloodsucking commodities speculators raise the price of gas, coffee, many foods or for that matter, anything by even a small amount, America's corporations take that as a signal to raise their prices by large amounts.
Good old "free" enterprise works wonders to help line the already bulging pockets of the top 2% wealthiest Americans at the expense of working Americans, people on a fixed income and the ever growing poor that now includes many former members of the middle class. Each and every price increase is taken out of the hides of the bottom 98%. Let's see, stagnant or non existent incomes, prices that seem to rise logarithmically overnight and indifferent electeds who, at best just pay lip service to the problems of the bottom 98% while they cater to the needs of the top 2% is a sure fire recipe for trouble. Many of the great politicians of the past realized that and knew that extreme capitalism can be as dangerous as any other system. Even President Nixon instituted wage and price controls at one point. My message to our electeds is that they had better kick the high priced corporate lobbyists out of their offices and start listening to "We The People", represented by America's unions before it's too late!
