13. Is this real?

 

I mean shitloads of unions have fallen in line behind Clinton, despite many of their members wanting Bernie.

You'd think Clinton and the DNC would want shitloads on the platform committee.

Think about this: Lack of Retirement. Lack of Health Benefits. Sick Leave. Low Pay.

The government can mandate these things and make more programs to provide these.

However if we have a strong union movement then there is not any reason for gov't to be involved. Workers would be able to bargain and strike and get these things for themselves.

Maybe with the political process so corrupt the rich figure they can hold benefits to the workers at a lower level by buying the politicians, and letting the gov't provide them, rather than allowing us to have unions.

Sort of sad the dems are ok with it.
