    Default Hoffa: Congress, Stand for Workers

    Yes, I have read all the anti Pelosi remarks on this site for years but lets give her a chance. I mean what have the old men republicans done for you lately????

    Starting tomorrow, there will be a new sheriff in Washington taking charge of the House of Representatives. And the Teamsters are confident that she will get things done for the benefit of U.S. workers.

    Soon-to-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pledging to have the backs of hardworking Americans. Last summer, she told hundreds of union members gathered at town hall at the Teamsters Health and Welfare building in downtown Detroit she would prioritize the passage of pension reform legislation that protects the nest eggs of workers and retirees alike. Now itís time move on this top issue.

    To that end, the Teamsters are calling on Congress to quickly pass legislation that would provide a lifeline for faltering multiemployer pensions like the Teamstersí Central States Pension Plan. As it stands, there are more than 300 multiemployer plans across the country in danger of failing. The issue has real implications here in Michigan, where some 43,000 residents could be devastated by pension failures.

    Over the past several years, thousands of Teamsters have come to Capitol Hill to tell their elected officials about the struggles they and their families will face if proposed pension cuts become a reality. For some facing health issues, it is questionable whether they will be able to afford the procedures or medicine that they need. Others worry about whether they will lose their homes.

    Cut your taxes ? Really, you can't answer that until you file your taxes for 2018. But we do know this administration gave a 1.5 TRILLION dollar tax break to the wealthy.

    As for economy taking "giant crap". It already has. Anybody with investments will tell you the markets haven't done anything the entire year of 2018.
    The good thing is, corporate American has added plenty of burger flipping jobs and low minimum wage service jobs.

    Yes ABFwife...Capitalism at its finest...So a few can profit...The rest have to suffer...

    We force our young into massive debt and provide ''GIG'' jobs for them(temp jobs with no benefits)...We force our older people out so they can't provide for their own retirements...And all of you who think you are ''SAFE''...YOU ARE NEXT...

    https://www.azquotes.com/quote/544715

    The sad part of this is that the older people who this is happening to think they are ''ALONE'' and feel shame so they won't reach out to others,when NOW is the time for the old and young to realize that they are facing the EXACT same thing and that NOW is the time for them to JOIN TOGETHER...

    And you don't need an Ivy League education to understand the problem....''UNIONIZATION''...Unfortunately,most workers today don't seem very INTERESTED in Unions...Why is that?...Propaganda...Corruption...Ignorance...Comb ination of all three I suspect...

    Way too many Americans are totally and historically ignorant of WHY Labor Unions Organized...Consequently,they are just as totally ignorant of WHY the disparity between the ''UPPER CLASSES'' and the ''LOWER CLASSES'' is growing rapidly...Some are so brainwashed they are falling into the PIT of regarding HARD FOUGHT advances in Labor simply as ''Entitlements''...And if the situation in this country CONTINUES down this path...The ignorant shall shall find EDUCATION in future employment and experience...I can Damn Well GUARANTEE THEM THAT!!!!!

    You See...They're COMING for ''ALL OF US''...Old-Young...It Doesn't Matter...Americans better ''WTFU''
