Attacks on Labor are Destabilizing the American Economy
Deep Learning! Laws harming working families are not passed because they make sense for society as a whole. Benefitting only the masters of capitalism, they're written into law thanks to well-funded misinformation campaigns, the propagation of fear, and a divisive jingoism.
Opposition to organized labor is well funded and constantly on the attack against the workers' movement. They're so good at it too. So good, in fact, that many Americans believe their case for eliminating prevailing wages, passing scam "right to work" laws, or eliminating the minimum wage.
Regardless how well crafted, reasonable and appealing their Trojan Horses appear, every challenge and strategic battle that ends up reducing workers' rights has hastened the decline of Western civilization and led to the growth of a societal cancer, inequality.
