Unions are the lifeline of workers. If you work for a union in a company and you`ve managed to get pay raises to account for inflation, better health care for your families, more paid time off for hard work, and you see a new manager come in who wants to cut those benefits. It`s time to strike. They are striking for better conditions. When scabs walk through these picket lines, they say, okay, I don`t need any of these benefits, I`m going to work for you, which gives the company a free pass, which means they don`t have to improve the quality of their employees because these strikebreakers take everything they can get. This undermines unions` efforts to treat their employees fairly. I`d also be angry if I picketed for better ventilation in a fiberglass grinding warehouse, or a raise after I haven`t had one in 6 years, and that scab comes and says I`m going to work for the lowest pay and in conditions! Things are being done on behalf of workers only because union members are on strike. If a certification company has no workers to replace the striking workers (resulting in the complete closure of the plant), that particular company has no choice but to meet at least some of the demands of the unionized workers. I don`t blame them at all for their tactics. In fact, I`m pretty proud 🙂 of Go Teamsters! Another argument in favor of replacement workers is the so-called “market test theory”, which is based on the principles of supply and demand [source: Ferrara].
Here`s how it works: U.S. The law allows a company to hire permanent replacement workers only in the event of an economic strike or wage strike — not in the event of a strike based on workers demanding higher benefits or demanding unfair treatment. If a union goes on strike to demand a fair wage increase, the employer will have difficulty finding replacement workers who work for below-market wages. However, if the union demands an excessive or above-market wage increase, the employer will easily find replacement workers willing to accept the lower but reasonable market price. Unionists present this problem as a simple matter of justice. They argue that the right to strike guaranteed by the NLRA is abolished by the ability of employers to hire permanent replacement workers. But what is the right to strike? This argument is hard to swallow for many unionized workers, but there is some logic, especially in the case of small businesses [source: Lemay]. Imagine a factory in rural Michigan. Economic times are tough and the factory makes virtually no profit. The union, furious that wages have not risen for years, is calling for a strike. Today, the company is in an even more difficult economic situation. With the shutdown of production, it loses hundreds of thousands of dollars a day, and the only way to get employees back to work is to meet their demands.
As has already been said, no one likes to play the obligatory generous role of strikebreaker. It`s a bad deal at first glance. And it is obvious that there would be no capitalist strikebreakers if there were no more capital than there is labor for capital. If there are enough factories to supply a certain commodity with occasional stoppages, the construction of new factories by a competing company for the production of that commodity is a clear proof that this capital is unemployed. The first act of this new aggregation of capital will be to lower prices, to give more for less; In short, to strike, to attack the very existence of the less generous accumulation of capital whose work it is trying to do. Since it is generally bad to give the least and give the least what is left? What remains is equity, that is to say, to give as for the like, the same for the same, no more and no less. But this justice cannot be done by society as it is currently constituted. It is not in the nature of today`s society that men give as for the like, the same for the like. And as long as men continue to live in this competitive society, fighting tooth and nail for food and shelter (which means fighting tooth and nail for life with each other), the crust will continue to exist for a long time. His will to live will force him to exist.
He can be beaten and ridiculed by his brothers, he can be beaten with bricks and clubs by the men who afflict him with superior strength and ability, while he surpasses them with longer hours and smaller wages, but through it all he will persevere, surpass them and give a little more of most to say the least. that they give. It is his brother who works abroad that the American worker hits the most outrageously. As Mr. Casson showed it, an English nail manufacturer receives $ 3.00 per week, while an American nail manufacturer receives $ 30.00. But the English worker produces 200 pounds of nails a week, while the American produces 5500 pounds. If he were as “fair” as his English brother, if the other things were the same, he would receive $82.50 at the wages of the English worker. As it was, he shot his English brother for $79.50 a week. Dr. Schultze-Gaevernitz showed that a German weaver produces 466 yards of cotton per week at a price of 0.303 yards per yard, while an American weaver produces 1200 yards at a price of 0.02 yards per yard. Now I have zero tolerance for those who cross a picket line to steal someone else`s work. These are desperate times for many, but scabies is not the answer.
It spreads misery and suffering and helps companies lower working conditions for all workers. This only confirms the oft-quoted remark of Robber Baron Jay Gould: “I can hire half the working class to kill the other half.” Thanks to this website for its generous approach to making it relatively easy for people to write comments freely. My website is probably not conservative enough to conform to the views and intentions of the California Policy Center because I openly discuss the “psychic thing” and psychological/psychotronic attacks on The Golden River website. While researching unions (specifically Boeing`s connection to machinist unions), I came across this website about strikebreakers. I sincerely appreciate the approach and depth of the information provided. I was attracted by a psychic feeling about a certain man with a mixed mood on the subject. On the one hand, he feels like a real whistleblower when it comes to Boeing`s negative actions; On the other hand, I felt a wave of a possible dark side of his ties to a machine syndicate. This prompted me to take a greater interest in unions, even though I had started earlier this year with an online graduate course with an article I had selected on the old populist movement. Although populists were mainly concerned with other issues, the first unions appeared during my readings. While researching Aviation World Corruption last month, which started with the Boeing corruption, I felt this vibration from this man and began to delve into the corruption of the machinery unions and in particular Boeing Aviation in Washington and the state of South Carolina. My psychological impression is that members who feel like you`re looking suspiciously into their darkest corners have quiet arms of retaliation across the country, depending on who they can find to act on their behalf in your area. Just snooping around might put someone off.
In other words, it was a strong psychological signal that made me want to read something. I think the retaliation discussed in the scabies section of this site may extend to relatively unknown and hidden technologies and metaphysical phenomena that can be used against the public. People who are not part of the labour world – in parts of the country where there are no large unions or who lived mainly in white-collar environments – may not know what they are getting into when talking to a trade unionist. You might stumble upon something, say something wrong, hit certain sensitivities with potentially dangerous results. Websites like these can really help people if they just know where to look and what questions to ask. I will add the link to my website. If a publisher offers an author better royalties than other publishers have paid him, he harms those other publishers. The journalist of a newspaper who thinks he should receive a higher salary for his work says this and is shown the door, is replaced by a journalist who breaks the strike; Whereupon, when the gastric distress worsens, the displaced journalist goes to another newspaper and starts crusting. The preacher who hardens his heart to a call and waits for a certain church to offer him five hundred more a year is often encrusted by another preacher more destitute; And next time, it`s his turn to crust while a brother preacher hardens his heart in a calling.
The crust is everywhere. Professional scabs, who receive high wages as a class, will fight each other, while strikebreaker unions will even be formed to prevent scabs from falling on strikebreakers. Market test theory holds that without the ability to hire permanent replacement workers, unions will exercise a monopoly that raises wages so much beyond fair market value that employers will no longer be able to do business [source: Ferrara]. A capitalist, like the late Collis P. Huntington, and his name is Legion, will get angry after a long life by buying the help of countless lawmakers, condemning, in unmeasured terms, “the dangerous tendency to call the government for help” in the manner of labor legislation. Without a shudder, a member of the capitalist group will let tens of thousands of pitiful child laborers walk through his life-destroying cotton factories, crying maudlin and constitutional tears over a crust smashed in the back with a brick.
