    Did you know the United States is the worst among the nations with the world’s leading economies for workers’ rights ?
    Did you know that wages have remained stagnant during the Trump years as workers pay ( adjusted for inflation ) remains the same as 40 years ago ?
    Did you know that child labor has remained remarkably widespread with a reported 2.5 million working particularly in agriculture ?
    Did you know the American worker puts in more hours then their comparable foreign worker ?

    Trump Keeps Giving American Workers a Raw Deal
    Although Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that American workers are “thriving” during his presidency, this contention rings hollow. The mishandled coronavirus pandemic, of course, has created levels of unemployment, hunger, and misery in the United States not seen since the Great Depression. But even in the years before the pandemic, when Trump claimed he had created “the greatest economy in history,” American workers were left far behind.
    Overall, wages remained stagnant during the Trump era, with gains in take-home pay eaten up by inflation, leaving “real wages” for workers the same as 40 years before. By contrast, the compensation received by their bosses rose dramatically, leading to an executive-to-worker pay ratio of 339 to 1.
    Perhaps most significant, American workers were largely stripped of a key protection against exploitation: labor unions. Unscrupulous U.S. employers effectively used legal and illegal tactics—including harassing union organizing drives, firing union sympathizers, and waging vicious, anti-union campaigns—to deprive workers of union representation. As a result, although nearly two-thirds of Americans approved of unions and roughly half of unorganized workers said they would join one if they could, union membership in the United States fell to an all-time low, with severe consequences for workers.

    When it comes to unions, the story is much the same. American unions represented a much smaller portion of the workforce than labor organizations in comparable societies. In 2019, when union membership in the United States fell to 10.1%, it stood at 90.4 percent in Iceland, 66.1 percent in Sweden, 54.2 percent in Belgium, 34.3 percent in Italy, 25.9 percent in Canada, 24.2 percent in Ireland, and 23.2 percent in Britain. Union membership in OECD nations averaged 16 percent.

    Not surprisingly, in a 2020 report, the International Trade Union Confederation—representing 200 million workers in 163 countries—ranked the United States as the worst among the nations with the world’s leading economies for workers’ rights.

    Trump just seems to bring out the worst in people. These radical righties, and all the other militia radicals support dictator Trump. For decades, most people understood the fringe elements of militia groups, skin heads, nazi wanna-be's and other brain dead idiots were sick and demented. Seems they have been resurrected within the cult of trumpism.

    Proud Boys brutally beat Black Lives Matter protesters after Trump rally
    "Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators gathered in Oregon City on Labor Day for a planned vehicle rally," Jonathan Levinson and Sergio Olmos reported. "The rally's organizers did not lead the caravan into Portland, as happened at the previous week's event. Instead, vehicles drove from Oregon City and headed south on Interstate 5. Some drivers traveled with their vehicle doors open on the highway, or with people perched on top of vehicles as they drove."
    "Members of the Proud Boys, an extremist group that regularly engages in street violence, and other demonstrators traveled to Salem after the official rally concluded. They congregated at the Oregon State Capitol Building, where some carried firearms and baseball bats," the network reported. "In one clash between the groups, members of the pro-Trump group attacked a counterprotester with a baseball bat and pepper spray. After a second similar attack, Salem police officers and Oregon State Police troopers arrested at least two men with the conservative demonstrators."
    Demented sicko's.

    Animals ?
    You mean those that beat people with baseball bats and use pepper spray against peaceful protesters ?
    What I notice in your comments is the fact you claim people "got what they deserve".
    Haven't heard you condemn any of the violence from the militia boys, those "very fine people".

    At least we know by your remarks you endorse violence and division.
    Here is more about those very fine people.

    When the ‘Alt-Right’ Hit the Streets: Far-Right Political Rallies in the Trump Era
    Between 2016 and 2018, Americans witnessed a major upswing in street mobilization by far-right groups, making it one of the most active periods of on-the-ground, extremist activity in decades.
    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has documented 125 rallies, marches and protests nationwide, which were organized and attended by far-right extremists, including white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, the “alt-right,” and right-wing reactionaries during these three years. There were 74 of these events in 2017 alone, the SPLC found.
    For the boogaloo boys and similar groups, taking to the streets is not a return to the far-right politics of protests that the nation previously witnessed, but a shift toward more authoritarian, anti-democratic – and even violent – tendencies within the radical right.
    In the spring and summer of 2018, the Proud Boys, an all-male group of far-right reactionaries, took the lead. The group carried out a series of rallies in the Pacific Northwest where members outfitted themselves to go to battle with anti-fascists.

    Two months ago this week: President Trump told Chris Wallace "We're signing a health care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health care plan..."

    Trump Administration had the nation loan Teamster company YRC $700 Million. And the nation now owns 30% of us......nationalizing us to an extent.

    How many concessions did we take under Obama?
    Why our union would support Biden over Trump is confusing to say the least.....
