Private business support Wisconson protestors.
Hey you corporate class types, here is an example of a fellow greedy pig having a conscious unlike many in that class.
A PIZZA JOINT donated pizzas to the protestors. So not all business owners are pricks and can value the working class. While quite sure that they pay some of their workers minimum wage and no health care, this act shows that there are private businesses that seem to want to do the right thing. I would guess that this business would if it could do all those things the government does for it's employees if it could.
What stops private business from doing it is big business. Big business competes for profits, not consumers which explodes the pay gap, which prevents smaller businesses from doing the right thing, which some would do if they could.
So when people accuse me of hating all rich people or all businesses go fly a kite. This is a business that knows even their workers have rights. It is a business with a conscious.
And my understanding of the story is that the unions accepted the higher costs but merely didn't want their bargaining power taken away.
In the first amendment it says "the right to peaceably assemble". So it's ok for big companies to pool their money to break the backs of those who work for them, but it is not ok for the worker to do the same?
"We can't afford it" Said the governor, in which "bargaining power" has nothing to do with the budget. And on top of that he funded another tax cut which we also cannot afford which seems to amount to the same "cuts" he wants to make by killing the unions.
AND, even the unions who were exempt from this bill also supported the other protestors.
NOW we have a private business bravely and rightfully support the working class.
I think more and more people are getting wise to the corporate abuse that has rapped the public and falsely accuse those who point out the abuse of hating business owners.
KUDOS TO IAN'S PIZZA, A PRIVATE BUSINESS SUPPORTING WORKERS RIGHTS!
Supporting workers is not a bad thing and when you do, much of the government help people in the middle class and poor, would go away.
Granted this is about unions of government workers, but there was a day when there were far more private unions. Those big companies could not abuse their workers because of their right to assemble.
If I didn't hate cold weather, I would move to that state. I only hope this workers rights spreads even in the private sector so we can stop this abusive power the corporate class has over our government. Being rich is fine, being abusive to the rest of us is not.
KUDOS TO IAN'S PIZZA!
