Neither Party Has a Solution

Feb 17, 2020

In the past weeks, workers were talking about impeachment proceedings. Most agree that the politicians did what we expected. The Republicans were not going to vote to remove Trump (although they recognized that he lies, is corrupt, and acts in his own interests). The Democrats were not going to be able to remove him, and finally focused on upcoming elections as the only solution.

After watching this, it was clear that neither party is focused on the real issues facing workers. We are drowning in everyday problems—stretching a “too-little” paycheck to cover “too high” expenses.

Our money is being used to support policies and processes that don’t benefit us. Neither party has a solution for pushing back against the rip-off we are enduring every day from bosses, bankers, and their spokesmen.
