    knowing that others are facing similar situations too.

    Unfortunately some Americans condone, encourage and even defend "company procedures" used to treat people this way. And when workers complain, they're slapped with the standard "you're not a capitalist, you're a communist" criticism.

    Until we begin to understand that capitalism does not mean letting companies -- and their bosses -- walk all over us and treat us like a disposable temporary resource, we'll continue to unjustly lose our jobs.

    It's a good reason to support legislation like the Employee Free Choice Act; to regain our voice and power at work!
