“Nothing so strongly impels a man to regard the interest of his constituents, as the certainty of returning to the general mass of people from which he was taken, where he must participate in their business,” George Mason, July 1788, to the Virginia Ratifying Convention.
With their constituents consisting of the nations corporate conglomerates. Which is why Senate Majority Leader Sen. McConnell, a very crafty manipulative politician. Will block any legislation from coming up before the full Senate that would be adverse the their interest.
Make no mistake, Trump loves McConnell because he’s also able to keep his republican colleagues from voting on any legislation adverse to the donald’s interest. Because to otherwise would return those senators to be a constituent from whence they were plucked!
That is why the nations method of taxation is so unfair. With wages not being sufficient for survival unless one has a second or third job.
Wages by law should be indexed to the cost of living, and automatically rise in accordance with the rate of inflation. Benefit packages, for most workers are non-existent. That needs to become an abusive relic of the past.
The nations health care system is horribly inadequate. It must be replaced with a single payer health plan for each and every America. Founded by the federal government, and paid for by the nations corporate conglomerates. Some which pay no taxes, or at the best, very little in taxes.
Corporate conglomerates, and lobbyist of various sorts, with the passive permission of the United States government, have just about erased the unionized work place. It’s an American tragedy, because unionized work places worked with success to eradicated the inadequacies cited above. Often at great personal sacrifices.
One of the solutions is to bring back the unionized work places. This current government made up of republicans, and most democrats would fight such efforts by going, as far as, to pass legislation making it illegal to unionize the workplace.
Here’s a sad example how union busting works where unions exist. In Florida, it’s illegal for public employees to abandoned the work place by calling for a strike. School teachers in Florida by law can’t strike. If they do, they’ll lose there teachers certification. Once that occurs they become ineligible to teach in Florida. Consequently, Florida teachers are among the poorest paid teachers in the country. And, Florida’s education of students has a poor rating also.
So here’s, how Florida deals with unionized teachers. It’s pathetic and undemocratic! Unionized school teachers have a collective bargaining agreement with individual school boards. Together they try to reach a contract agreement. However, if they reach an impasse in contract negotiations. The school board by Florida law can impose a contract upon the teachers union. The power of unionized collective barging agreements is the power to strike when negotiations reach an impasse. Strikes do wonders for economic, and social equality between the employed and the employer.
