I want this to serve as a reminder to ANY person, Tea Partier or otherwise who opposes unions that union members are America's last remaining True patriots. Now I know that the Tea Partiers call themselves "patriots" but they actually support policies that allow and encourage corporations to outsource manufacturing and jobs to places like China and India. When American corporations outsource jobs to China they are transferring American technology and trade secrets to China. Need I remind you Tea Party "patriots" that China is a Communist country!
When our corporations offshore our jobs, we lose high paying private sector jobs, the kind of jobs that made the American dream possible and allowed our parents to put a comfortable middle class roof over our heads. Those jobs paid wages that were much higher that the salary of a government worker and usually had decent benefits! The proud unionized American employees who held those jobs were taxpayers who contributed to the American tax base. Need I remind everyone that both the Republicans and the Democrats support "free" trade agreements that send our jobs overseas because the same corporate lobbyists control BOTH parties. The Tea Party has a "free" market, hands off corporations mentality that also makes job offshoring possible. Unions are the last remaining defenders of American jobs and the American dream!
These days, government workers generally make lower salaries than their counterparts in private industry but have better benefits due to all of the corporate conniving that goes on in the private sector.
Government workers pay taxes, buy food, homes, appliances, cars, etc. which helps our economy. When a Tea Party politician advocates eliminating a government employee's job they are hurting local and American businesses by wiping out that employee's purchasing power. They have also lost another taxpayer and put him on the unemployment rolls. That same Tea Party politician will then whine that the government has to cut unemployment.
In closing, If you work for a living and advocate eliminating the jobs and right to collective bargaining of government employees, you are hurting their families and your community. What would happen to your family and lifestyle if you lost YOUR job? If you feel that they make too much money or have better benefits, don't envy them, unionize YOUR workplace!
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
Proud To Be On:
