The Sweet Charity of Corporate America

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Psychopath & Sociopath, Ted Nugent at 3:53 pm by George Smith

Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America and many other good books, has a Facebook account. And she posts regularly.

Yesterday:

Yesterday at a labor event I gave a brief talk on workers’ rights. Very brief: American workers have no rights.

Then, Ted Nugent, who suffers kidney stones, certainly not from eating too much sweet:

Economic lesson No. 1: The reason business is in business is to make as much money as possible. Businesses are not social welfare experiments whose primary responsibility is to provide jobs and meet the demands of ever-shrinking labor unions …

There is good news. In the private sector, labor unions are quickly becoming extinct …

The evidence is clear: Labor unions have a history of destroying companies and jobs, and have done much to kill the economies of states like Michigan, Ohio and Illinois — all states that supported Mr. Obama.


Good news, lads! Good news! When we’re fighting the scrabbling crowds on Friday, no union workers in most places!


Trivia notice: The paperback edition of Kipper’s Game, Ehrenreich’s lone novel (science fiction, it did not sell), features a blurb taken from the old Crypt Newsletter on its back cover!
