“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.”

Bosses of major companies have begun using corporate funds to campaign for their candidates.
Heaven forbid! If you are a worker at Georgia-Pacific, Cintas, Koch Industries or a host of small companies, your mailbox may contain a letter urging you to support your boss’s choice of candidates.
One boss said that if Obama ever levies a higher tax against him personally, he will lay off workers. Another defends his threat to cut jobs if Obama wins by saying that it’s not using threats: “it’s like telling your kids to ‘eat your spinach, it’s good for you.’ ”
So much for “If you know what’s good for you!” from your friendly job-cutting, profit-sucking boss. Spinach will be all we’re left with if we depend on either candidate or their corporate messengers to save us.
