Workers Should Not Pay for the Bosses’ Crisis!

Sep 1, 2014

We live in the wealthiest country in the world… but what benefit do we get out of it?

Our labor created this wealth, unimaginable wealth, wealth never before seen… and yet, nothing is going right, not for us.

It’s a disaster… but who is going to fix it?

  • Not the big companies – their constant push for profit caused the problem.

  • Not the big banks – their speculation pushed the whole society to the brink of collapse, and they will do it again.

  • Not the Democrats and Republicans – their policies are based on taking from working people and the poor to give to the rich.

WE have to fix it. WE need to push back, together, millions of us, all of us who are exploited by this greedy capitalist class.

It’s true, there is no fight now. But this capitalist class, grabbing for every drop of profit, will push people to fight.

Sooner or later, there will be a fight. And our problem, then, will be to make the bosses pay for their own crisis, to win what we need to protect our lives, the lives of all ordinary people.

  • Too many times before, when workers fought, their fights were diverted, their struggles were led into a dead end.

    We must prepare now, so when we fight, we know what we need to fight for.

  • We will need our own policy, our own program.

For a Working Class Fight Based on a Working Class Policy!

To Protect Ourselves ... We Need to Fight!
