  •  Your actions here are having a great impact (7+ / 0-)

    on helping to educate the public to what's happening with jobs and the economy in this country.  Of course your immediate goal is to save the company and jobs but with your clear and savvy approach you are helping many people who haven't themselves been involved yet with a similar situation understand how and why so many companies are failing through mismanagement created as a result of corporate greed.

    Hopefully Walmart employees will also aid in the education process if it progresses well since both companies have such a great presence in the nation.

    I'm convinced that if we are to save the middle class and the poor it's going to have to be done by organized labor.  The same is true with education and teachers and support personnel.

    Actually there's a lot of good citizen work being done now with the public reactions to the recent spate of business owners threatening to raise prices and reduce employees under the excuse that they can't afford either benefits or decent wages.

    Let's hope it all comes together with one powerful voice demanding change to the capitalism gone crazy which is destroying the nation.

    You have my respect, my admiration, and my support.

      the RW memes that have taken over and that the corporate media is running wild with.

      A good recent example of a feisty progressive voice interrupting authoritarian droning occurred this campaign season during the vice presidential debates. Anyone remember Joe Biden basically gumming up Paul Ryan's rehearsed spiel? Biden embodied what we need more of, in all spheres of public life.

      Couldn't link to the debate for some reason; it's on Youtube.
