    all these left-wing political ideas are a big scam, and you can look at California for proof.

    35 years ago , in Los Angeles, cops were complaining because they started at 25k while plumbers, union or not, were making 50k+
    the post office started at 10 to 12 and no one wanted to work there.
    the average company had to decide if they were going to keep you within 3 months, because there was some kind of regulation about firing people, where companies were reluctant to do so.

    then ,California opened the doors to illegals and all the left-wing crazy politics.

    California was a "Right to work" state but changed the name because illegals were suing the sate ,claiming they had a right to work.
    now, California is an "At will" state, which is worse.

    people talk about how "Right to work" and "At will" have an effect on unions, but the average company has the ability to fire people when ever they want, without reason.

    you'll notice that California is run by Democrats and they WANT the "At will" AKA "Right to work" policy.

    most of the work has been given to illegals, and it's not uncommon to see plumbers and other "craftsmen" working for minimum wage. craftsmanship quality has taken a massive drop.
    most of the regular unions kept raising their wages benefits until companies were forced to move over-seas.

    now, most of the union jobs are government related, which falls in line with Socialist policy that only people involved with the government should be making money.

    cops start at 60k and no longer eat doughnuts, every day is Sizzler for them.
    teachers start at around the same pay to sit in the class with their feet up, regurgitating Socialist politics.
    we had a big outcry recently because lifeguards were getting paid 150k to sit on the beach.

    the people who do all the work are at minimum wage.
    and getting into a Socialist union job is a gift from Satan himself, a lot of the applications say on it "who do you know?", like the one i had when i applied for HVAC/plumbing union some years back.

    we went for a while with these government unions making big money, but now the state is broke and union jobs no longer pay what their older employees made.
    the city bus department dropped their wages, "next tier" drivers don't have the wages or the benefits the people they work with do.
    people get hired into unions then get dropped 6 months later.


    why should people who struggle at 20k pay for somone else to live at 80k?

    it's game over for this BS.

    no one can blame the Republicans here.
    people in my area don't even call themselves "Republicans", they are liberals who run for which ever is available.

    the only way people can fix this is to bring back a serious nationalist attitude

    Amazing how often the tactic of attacking grammar or punctuation is posted in lieu of any discussion on the content. I guess when you have nothing else........................
