It is time to call a spade a spade. The Big Labor thugs continue to show their true colors by attacking one of America’s most sacred holidays, Thanksgiving! The Big Labor Bosses, a.k.a. Gasping Dinosaurs, have their own selfish interests at heart, working to save their lifestyle, political influences and ultimate power. These tenacious tactics all come at the expense of the very members they claim to represent! Shame on Them for using this special occasion to further their own agenda. In connection with their buddy in the White House, on the very day that celebrates the Pilgrims Awakening to the reality that socialism does not work and free enterprise and free markets are the only true path to prosperity!
In their quest for survival, the Big Labor Turkeys are willing to destroy American exceptionalism and execute the most devastating and effective portion of their so-called Corporate Campaigns against American businesses. Simply put, their actions are an attempt to reduce business revenues during this critical fiscal season. This effort to bring businesses to their knees and submit to forced unionism comes on one of the proudest days in American history.
Mirroring the attacks against my company, as chronicled in The Devil At Our Doorstep, the goal is to publicly embarrass and intimidate businesses into capitulation. Big Labor shares a motto with Saul Alinsky, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” Simply put, that is what these outlandish and unpatriotic demonstrations are all about! The Shame is on Them, not on the businesses that have led this country and its people to be the most prosperous in the history of the world!
The recent atrocities Big Labor has inflicted and planned to inflict upon businesses across the country during this holiday week are nothing short of a disgrace! First, we watched the Twinkie debacle, where head of the Bakers Union – Frank Hurt, despite desperate pleas from the rank and file membership, let his ego make the decision not to negotiate with Hostess and sacrificed 18,500 jobs. Instead he stood by the union mentality of power and intimidation, which forced Twinkie Maker Hostess to Close, costing 18,500 Americans their jobs in this stagnant economy!
This week, the UCFW and their partners in crime decided that Thanksgiving and token “Black Friday” was a perfect opportunity to apply pressure to Wal-Mart’s employees, whom they have been attempting to force unionize over the past several years. Their strategy was for a Black Friday walkout and picketing of Wal-Mart stores across the country. This would be an attempt to publicly embarrass Wal-Mart, but more importantly reduce their revenues during the most important time of year for the retailer. The union claims that this walk out was in response to Wal-Mart opening late on Thanksgiving Day and forcing employees to give up their Holiday and return to work.
These same type claims were made against EMS during the SEIU’s Corporate Campaigns! The SEIU were experts at finding disgruntled employees, which every company has as some people are never happy, then use these people and coercion and intimidation to reinforce the ranks. They then use these people to process the campaign of Death by a Thousand Cuts and engage the sympathetic and oblivious mainstream media to support them! What the mainstream media fails to realize is that these people are a very small minority. Case in point, when the SEIU realized that its campaign against EMS was failing, it called upon EMS employees in a last ditch effort to strike on Labor Day weekend. The result was that approximately 10 out of 400 employees in Indianapolis went on the picket line. You do the math, less than 3% of EMS employees, and half of them were union salts!
Despite the fact the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and its radical Obama recess appointees will do everything it their power to favor Big Labor, all charges against EMS were dropped by the NLRB Administrative Law Judge who noted the claims were unbelievable, contrived and without merit! Similarly, Wal-Mart employees have already come forward and admitted that Wal-Mart only provided the opportunity for employees to choose to work if they desired. Typical that Big Labor depicted this as “forcing” employees to work against their will, using the gullible and easily mislead recruits to attempt to verify its position! I am sure the NLRB, which is desperately attempting to achieve Card Check through Regulation vs. Legislation will do everything in its power to assist the newly reelected President by repaying his Big Labor buddies and bring businesses across the country to their knees!
Keeping up their destructive reputation, our old buddies the SEIU decided this was the perfect time to make life miserable for California travelers on the biggest travel day of the year by Striking the LAX Airport in attempt to disrupt travel and impact airport vendors and airline revenues! Another selfish attempt by this radical union to place survival ahead of respect for a national holiday and American citizens! In most cases, like the protestors at LAX, the people picketing are not even employees of the company, but hired guns brought in to create a disturbance and get media attention. Shame on the SEIU Fat Cats!
Americans must stand up on this great day in history and ask themselves are these the type people we want determining our destiny through their “puppet” President in the White House? The answer is NO! This collective group is responsible for the immenent Decline of American Exceptionalism! Stand up America and take our country back. When the going gets tough, the tough get going! After all, this is an appropriate time of year to establish peace and American prosperity!
