SORT BY Relevancy
When President Obama pushed his health care overhaul plan through Congress, he counted labor unions among his strongest supporters. But some unions leaders have grown frustrated and angry about what they say are unexpected consequences of the new law -- problems that they say could jeopardize the health benefits offered to millions of their members. The issue could create a political headache next year for Democrats facing re-election if disgruntled union members believe the Obama administration and Congress aren't working to fix the problem. "It makes an untruth out of what the president said, that if you like your insurance, you could keep it," said Joe Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. "That is not going to be true for millions of workers now."
Today, we going to examine the ongoing battle between Public Labor Unions and the Republican Governors in the Midwest United States from Wisconisn, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. What will be the future of collective bargaining? What role does the public safety/privative labor union movement fit in this battle? What will happen if a TEA Party or GOP Candidate wins the Governor's office in the Commonwealth of Kentucky? Our featured guest is from the American Legion in Nevada conversating for Patriotic Freedom Rides on Armed Forces Day on May 21st.
The bill debate for HR 1120 will be today at 11:30AM ET. The GOP is strongly against the National Labor Relations Board. Follow the bill debate America. This bill is about working Americans. The GOP has pieced together material they feel will end labor unions in the workplace. Labor unions are the closest thing working Americans have to lobbyist. American workers need a voice just as CEO's of America and foreign companies operating in America has VOICES, like ALEC. OWS is the voice of the people and consequently they are villainized by corporate money mouths. We the people need jobs. We the people need better paying jobs. We the people need to be able to have a voice in our work environment. We the people need to keep the accomplishments we have made over the decades, thanks to unions being our voices with corporate representatives. Job uncertainty is nothing but a GOP hoax to justify continued outsourcing of USA jobs, while not hiring American workers. Be sure your representative stands against HR-1120 or you just may be standing in a line that used to be the unemployment line. For you do know, the GOP have plans in the making to end unemployment benefits as we know it.
Issue: Corporations, job creators and even some workers do not respect our labor. Who's to Blame?
Though both corporate productivity and corporate profits climb, workers' wages remain stagnant. CEO's continue to see big payouts, even during economic downturn. Corporations are being accused of wage theft. America can't even get our legislators to respect our labor through increasing the minimum wage.
However, without the productivity of the worker you don't have profits. Why don't workers get paid more for their productivity? Laborers, they get no respect.
Is the government to Blame for not raising the minimum wage?
Would a $2.00 wage increase kill business and force them into layoffs?
Do you feel that a worker's productivity is not always worth a certain wage?
Do workers even know what their labor is worth?
Dave Calwell joins Joe from Fox Sports to discuss the Michael Sam issue, is he getting special treatment in any way because he came out as gay?
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

When Do You Know It's Time to Go?
In this episode we discuss how we all could work less and be more productive under a technologically driven socialist economy and society. Today there are over 7 billion people on the planet, but yet the majority of us work just as hard and as long as we were working a hundred years ago. While technology has automated many of the jobs and tasks people used to perform, technlogical unemployement under capitalism has lead to more unemployment, lower pay, and more work hours—that is, except for the rich elite. So listen in, and let's talk about work and leisure under socialism.
