The Indiana State Legislature is following Wisconsin’s lead.

The R’s pushing Union-busting and the D’s walking out.
Yowza. Our Democratic “Socialist” Governor, Hickenlooper, is looking at cutting public school K-12 budgets.
BUT….
Nobody’s talking about the R.T. phrase. As in, Really and Truly pay the damn bills.
Industry makes beaucoup bux off having educated workers and public transportation and the niceties of a civilized society being available to everybody.
Especially the workers who ultimately pay the highest tax, it’s called Corporate Profit Margins and it’s exacted on us without representation. No Official representation, that is, we still have plenty of police protection from the onerous task of Freedom, actually being allowed to pool our resources, our lives and our labor in collective bargaining in order to assure us an equitable wage, one that allows us to be paid at least what it costs US to produce our labor for the profit of the Rich. In Texas it’s already illegal.
We have to sacrifice OUR quality of life, OUR retirement, OUR health care and that of our children and grandchildren for generations to come, or so the Tea Party Anti Tax Crusaders tell us. Insuring continued profits for the Parasite Class on the backs of the Working Class, as always.
The mill-workers backside fits the office chair far better than the mill-owners hand fits the shovel.
