Should America form a national union for all American citizens?
I have lived in NYC for 49 years and have worked in many
industries. I started working full time at 15 years old in 1978 making 2.50 per
hour and working 12 hours a day, scrubbing pots and pans until my hands
blistered like third degree burns. I had Brillo embedded in the skin under my
fingernails. I later graduated into working as a messenger for a large
corporation and promoted many times for working very hard. I worked in the
banking industry back when computers were just being used on Wall Street, where
I worked at the time. They were IBMs, CRTs, and Vydacs and were very hard to operate. I
have experienced in my life many work places and many different situations. I
have worked for maybe 10 corporations in my lifetime. I was a was a
bartender at night because working for corporations did not make you very much
money at my level. I worked 17 hours a day for a long time, had little time for
my son, and did not see him often. I worked for almost 20 restaurants and nightclubs, I was also an actor.
All those years of hard work amounted to nothing. I was also one of the top salesmen in the country in the 90s selling indoor advertising. This present system allows
cracks that too many good people can fall through, that are hard working loyal citizens.
People lose everything by being out of work for just a year or two for no fault of their own. Everything you
have worked for all your life can disappear in just a year or two. A billion pots
scrubbed a million miles you walk with a package and when you are middle aged,
you have nothing. Its time we changed this system to a system that works for
the common man, not just the common man that is lucky enough to bag a city,
state or government job. A system that everyone that is law biding and works hard can get a
decent job. Any man or women with basic intelligence no matter what his credentials,
should be able to work and survive with dignity in America.
A national union with every American paying into it will
assure all Americans that want to work will work. All Americans that have
worked and paid taxes in this country will be able to retire at 60, after working at least 10 to 25 years with a guaranteed pension of between $2000 and $5000 on average with a cap of $8000. per month. So he or she can live
decently through out is life, our system at this time keeps the poor poor and
the rich rich. Every day we are creating another step on the ladder to middle
class, this must end. American companies in this country FROM this country that go
over seas for cheap labor should be shunned and boycotted. Americans must stand
together and only hire Americans, and be conscious of the ultimate goal of every American citizen living a good decent happy productive life. A national union will join us all in the goal of 100% employment, this will give every individual a voice and empowerment
to control his or her own destiny.
