From time to time, this writer has attempted to establish the forces that work against employees through out the workplace. Sometimes labeled the “Enemies of the People.” At the top of this pinnacle, is God. From God’s, directive, men were to be “fruitful,” “multiply,” “subdue,” and have “dominion.” This inspiration eventually gave birth to Capitalism. The main tenets of Capitalism are “Production,” “Commerce,” and “Profits.” or P.C.P.
Nothing in American culture, is tolerated, that will either compromise, or jeopardize Capitalism. In a nutshell, God, and Capitalism must be considered the enemies of working people everywhere. Because the objective is make a few very rich and most very poor. It is not the Christ way! The Christ way is as follows, “…, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. In today’s vernacular one job st equitable wages is enuf. See Luke 10:7. But modern day reality is as follows with many people in the middle verily surviving financially. Since it has been mostly that way from the inception of the nation more than 200 years ago. It must be recognized that it will never change. Until the American work force collectively, asserts enuf is enuf. Enuf is interpreted this way, “REVOLT!”
It started in this manner, men using their ingenuity. Created what they knew was to become an American hoax. They said, “… We hold these truths self evident, that all men were created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness,” the Preamble to The Declaration of Independence, Which was to be followed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. From which came the First Amendment guarantee of “speech and “assemble.” Which must also be declared to be hoax because those self evident truths are not tolerated. When they interfere with the trio of God’s declared order; tagged the P.C.P. Speech and Assembly in right to work states are dangerous avenues to pursue for protesting employment unfairness. Such behaviors can result in firings despite constitutional guarantees that say otherwise. Because employees are forced to waive such rights in order to be employed.
Americans through out our Tampa Bay community, all of Florida, and the nation. Must understand the implications of all this because it denies them what they cherish and need. “Life,” “Liberty,” “and the pursuit of happiness.” which has its foundation in Money. But will never be realized, because our federal, and state governments have no interest in economic equality. For employees within their respective jurisdictions, because they are partnered with corporate America, your employer. Who collectively have the goal of making sure that economic equality is not realized by the American work force.
Some states, have unleashed a devastating blow to economic equality. It started when, Florida, in 1944 became the first state to enact, Right to Work, legislation. Since then, more than two dozen states have enacted such legislation. Meaning many of those people will have to work more than one job in order to make ends meet.
Where ever, such legislation exist, this is what the people in those states experience. When they successfully find employment. They must sign a form which states as a condition of their employment that no employment agreement is entered into. That they can be fired for no cause, what so ever. Meaning an employee can receive an exemplary evaluation and then “fired.” Employees as a collective body can not negotiate for an employment package that takes steps toward assuring them economic equality. For real practical purposes, the states, that enact, Right to Work, laws must be seen as the enemy of employees seeking economic equality. And the enemies of Christ because His concepts of social and economic justice is in opposition to forced inequality.
In that this writer lives in Florida, the first state to enact such legislation. Here are some of the effects experienced by the people of Tampa, in Hillsborough county. Wages paid to employees are among the lowest in the nation. Benefit packages offered to employees are very poor compared to states that do not have right to work laws. Remember we are talking about your, “Unalienable Rights,” which are. “Life,” “Liberty”, and “the Pursuit of Happiness.” Which can not occur, without money.
The students in the Tampa public school system and through out Florida are near the bottom of the ladder academically because so little money is spent on education. Which includes teachers, who rank among the lowest paid in the nation. Teachers can not afford to live in the Tampa Bay community. Things are so bad, that its been suggested that legislative financial assistance needs to occur to make housings affordable for teachers. One teacher complained to this writer that she took a $15,000 reduction in salary to teach in Florida. Why? Her husband moved his business to Florida because he could pay his employees less money.
Here is something else that people need to understand. Academically, schools are being pushed by corporate America to see that students are prepared for the work force to the extent that they can advance the P.C.P. agenda of capitalism. Meaning a sub standard education that qualifies them for a high school diploma, but not college. Of course there are pockets of exceptions. But generally with standards that are not as rigorous as those of former graduates, and most noteworthy, the standards of states without, Right to Work legislation.
While this part of the discussion focused on Florida, all states with Right to Work legislation have the same impact and results. Such legislation is designed purposely to destroy all aspects of “Life,” “Liberty.” “and the pursuit of Happiness.” Way beyond employment, education, and housing. It impacts employee safety and environmental safe guards; just to name two.
The solution, is for employees to see that they have an unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as a civil right. Which equates to economic equality. Then to organize, and secure for themselves this civil right. That has been denied them for over 200 years.
