It is time Americans take down the GOP veil of deceit and work once again to strengthen American Unions.  Unions are responsible for everything good about working class Americans way of life. GOP lobbyist are responsible for everything that has contributed to the crushing of American unions. The top 1% of Americans own 42 percent of the USA. Without unions being in American history, think about what America would look like today. Our soldiers are on food stamps all across America. A lady dies in Florida because of lack of finances to purchase life saving drugs. A lady dies in New Jersey, while sleeping in her vehicle, getting rested up so she could work a second shift on her full time job. Unions are representative of workers. The union is a collective body that speaks and negotiates the wishes of workers to CEOs and politicians. Lobbyist are a collective body that speaks and negotiates the wishes of CEOs to politicians.

Without unions would USA have:

Ended child labor

40 hour work week and paid overtime

Worker's comp benefits for workers injured on the job

Unemployment insurance for workers who lose their jobs

A guaranteed minimum wage for workers

Pensions for workers

Healthcare insurance for workers

Paid sick leave, vacations, and holidays as standard benefits for most workers

the right for public sector workers to collectively bargain

Occupational Safety and Health Act

Family Medical Leave Act

Lobbyist are there for American Legislative Exchange Council, who are a body of corporations, headed up by CEOs whose goal is to develop wealth through massive unemployment of the American worker. This happens because of the GOP.  GOP protects CEOs with laws to outsource US jobs, and bring in Foreign workers to do jobs, claiming Americans won't do the jobs, or can't do the jobs. Call this crap!
