Butt Draggin’

`

Preface: Having slaved away, for decades, in the workaday world, this now retiree doth speak from experience. Factoring in everything that my late father, a dedicated union man, had taught me; as well as my being well-read on most labor / management issues, I should be able to address whatever crap I’ve not seen, first hand.

Yesterday was Labor Day in America. That I’m weighing in one day late, in itself, should serve as a powerful op-ed. However, seeing how that could also, quite easily, be misconstrued as apathy, I shall now labor onward…

I do speak of a national holiday, which has been rendered utterly meaningless by “our” elected lethargic leaders, of all political stripes; they, who can be counted on for one thing:

Butt Draggin’

Year in year out, they do little to nothing to:

  • elevate minimum wage so it will always be a living wage
  • ensure a non-toxic, non-hostile, safe work environment
  • crush unreasonable demands for increased productivity
  • deep-six attempts to union bust, downsize and offshore

Soooooo… just how, pray tell, doth anyone ever motivate THEM to actually represent US?

You know, to serve the best interests of average Janes and Joes? To dig us all out from the bottomless pit of poverty? To see us all thru to those oft promised, yet, too elusive better days?

Needless to say, rarely, if ever, doth anything bode well whenever an issue gets distilled down to:

US v. THEM!
