Stand for the American worker

August 08, 2012

Dear Editor,

Many years ago, the wealthy paid taxes, and unions made sure they paid workers a decent, living wage. And they were still wealthy. But the unions started to lose power and wages started to go down. The government had employees that made decent living wages, but that made the job creators in the private sector look bad.

Luckily they had plenty of money to spend on commercials and soon we all believed that the private sector wasn’t being paid too little, it was the teachers and firefighters that were being paid too much! We’re distracted by the oldest trick in the book: Divide (the public and private workers) and Conquer. If we stand united as American Workers, we can begin to thrive again! Vote for the American Workers!
