  •  We need to call labor theft (6+ / 0-)

    what it is: labor theft.

    We should avoid using fuzzy phrases like: Workers are deprived of sharing in the fruits of their labor.

    The simple fact is, but for a few exceptions here and there, nobody builds a company by themselves.  It would be impossible for the Walmarts and Walmart's executives to operate those stores by themselves, just like it is impossible for the owners and executives of Hostess to operate the business by themselves.

    Somewhere along the line, executives and shareholders [and/or companies like Bain] have decided that they should get all the wealth while stripping the workers of the value they [the workers] create.

    This devaluation of workers has to stop.

    The banks have a stranglehold on the political process. Mike Whitney
