The idiots in Reddit neoliberal were begging Biden to union-bust them like the morons they are.
"The railroads said that board rejected union demands for paid sick time.The major freight railroads appear unwilling to give track maintenance workers much more than they received in the initial contract they rejected last week, increasing the chances of a strike.www.pbs.org
I really hate the fact that Sick Leave is considered a privilege, not a right, in this country. Because it makes sooo much more sense to just work people while they're sick, who then get other people sick, thus leading to less productive work, more accidents, etc because goddamn those lazy workers are demanding time to actually rest and recuperate and try to recover from sickness."The railroads said that board rejected union demands for paid sick time.
“Now is not the time to introduce new demands that rekindle the prospect of a railroad strike,” the railroads said"
Hasn't "stop firing us for getting sick" been one of the big pushes the workers have been doing this entire time? My understanding is most of theirs complaints were QoL (paid sick, not being on call at all times, not punished for being sick, etc) and not pay. Everyone of course is on board with more pay but none of those QoL changes seem to have been met...
Well, somebody sure missed the -- what? -- half-dozen threads I started on how massively shit Biden is, during the 2020 Democratic National Convention alone?Anyone going to admit how non-progressive the Biden Administration actually is? How is this not an easy win for a democratic president?
You can vote for other people, that's what I do. I noticed over my years that voting for democrats doesn't do anything and when republicans gain power, it's not like the country goes to shit like the fearmongering claims so why should I be so scared about republicans gaining power if I don't vote for democrats and "waste my vote"?Two party system, lesser of two evils, etc
Trickle down economics, war on drugs, so very many wars like extending Vietnam, neo-liberalism, abortion bans, absurd levels of privatization, pick a tax cut really,Please explain how republican overarching policies have made the country significantly worse.
Those only happen under republican administrations...?Trickle down economics, war on drugs, so very many wars like extending Vietnam, neo-liberalism, abortion bans, absurd levels of privatization, pick a tax cut really,
Haven't had a Republican administration not immediately lead into a recession for my entire life.
You didn't ask me about Democrats. Though yeah, it's not like Democrats sabotaged Vietnam peace talks to influence a presidential election. And Ronald Reagan is a direct source of a *lot* of stupid neo-liberal bullshit that fell to pieces over the years. And democrats didn't start banning abortions.Those only happen under republican administrations...?
Biden's naming of acts is just as bad as say Bush's where the name of the act doesn't do anything that it's called like Biden's Inflation Reduction Act doesn't reduce inflation at all.
