Corporate Scabbing

You know the ones.

Locally here it’s City Market, King Soopers and Safeway.They’re all (more discreetly now, since somebody has been going around vandalizing their “Now Hiring Scabs” signs … leave us have a moment of silence to reflect upon the tragedy of Corporate Property like those less-than-a-penny-apiece signs having rude sayings written over the Corporate Message… and mourn for the poor, poor multimillionaire owners of the stores…

okay moments up…)

But like the sign said, they’ll hire anybody who is both dishonorable enough to make a quick buck Fucking His Fellow Workers To Death And Beyond, impoverishing them and their children and locking them into perpetual Wage Slavery…

…and somehow even with that Morally Retarded attitude they somehow made it to adulthood without committing a major crime that would reflect badly on the Background Check.

Now, the Corporate BigPigs made the decision to cut lower-management jobs like actually having a human sit down and read your job application while you’re sitting there. Apparently a face to face interview on that level isn’t dehumanizing enough.

So just anybody who knows how to operate his fingers can waltz into the store, can access anonymously a computer terminal, for instance the one at King Soopers on Uintah is right between the pharmacy and the… oh, you’ll find it, if you’ve a mind to do so.

Of course if you’re bold enough to use readily traceable elements in the application like Your Real Name, Birthdate, Drivers License or Social Security numbers… then more power to you.

Most however would use a name like “Joe Momma” or “Yumus B Frigginhigh” or “Figg Pucker” or “Anne Ominous” and wear a wig because you’d be right under the security camera…

Former Employer: Colorado Department of Justice
Position: Inmate
Reason for leaving: Made Parole

“Do you have any active warrants for your arrest?” “explain”
Only if you count the Homeland Security one, but I didn’t do it, nobody saw me do it and they can’t prove that I did it.

“Do you have any medical problems that might affect your job performance?”
Well, aside from the uncontrollable bowel movements, the severe flatulence and this hacking cough, no.

Now, aside from the frankly EVIL nature of Scabbing, the Corporate State has a few added goodies that subsidize the practice.

You know how Colorado has a limited version of the “Right To (get abused, underpaid and generally be a slave at)Work Law”…

Well, if you have Conditional Employment, such as being on standby as a Scab, the Department of Human Services, which ordinarily would require you to actively seek employment in order to get Rent assistance, food assistance and AFDC… will let you sit on your Piggish Selfish Arse at home collecting the money without any pretense of looking f or work.

That’s a Corporate Welfare Subsidy even the most hard-core “conserve”ative would get behind in a heartbeat.

Shit, boy, if Bill Owens or Pete Coors were the Governor they probably would have instructed the county DHS caseworkers to give you Extra, just because you’re a Holy Warrior against those bad, wicked, naughty Unions and their Uppity Workers who believe in the silly ass notion that they’re actually as good as Real People.

I mean, if people have been on Standby for the past 4 months, what have they really been doing to support themselves, Hmmm? And according to Corporate Propaganda they’ve got 3700 of them on call.

That means the State of Colorado and the Yankee Gubmint are paying The Scabs on behalf of Kroger and Safeway in order to help them “break” the Union.

Oh, and for y’all Scabs, if you really believe in the Corporate Lie about how wonderful their opportunities are, then you would actually believe that you, being (no doubt) Qualified To Work and Willing to Work, why, (Wave a flag and have somebody in the background singing “America the Beautiful”) you should be able to find a successful career ANYWHERE in America.

So why are you waiting around on your fat, lazy, unqualified Collective Arse waiting for a one-time opportunity like Scabbing a Strike?

As for the Customers who have said they would willingly drive across town just to deliberately cross a picket line, give the One-finger Salute to the workers and give the Stiff Arm Bellamy Salute to the Corporate Masters, why would you want to have unqualified, Broken and Spiritless Workers packaging your groceries, the ones you’re going to feed to your kids?
Are you REALLY that evil, not only hate American Workers but you would accept substandard cowards like Scabs feeding your family… man, you guys must hate your kids too…
