The Occupy movement is a wake-up call to the citizenry to recognize that we have a choice to stand with organized labor that created the middle class or side with corporate America, which is in the process of taking organized labor down and, with it, the middle class.
It’s always been about money/power, not about wedge issues: sexual orientation, religion, abortion laws, race, gender, immigration – issues that generate hate/fear. The 1 percent could care less about these issues.
The wedge issues are used to secure votes to ensure that agendas are met to secure advantageous policies for Wall Street and corporate America – regulation reforms allowing capitalism to run amok, gutting our economic ststem.
The plan? Wise up. Do we want to return to pre-union United States? No vacation, no sick leave, 12-hour days, child labor, no retirement packages, wages that allowed barely enough to live on? Support those who support us, the workers. We built this country.
The plan? We are the plan.
