RECESSION LINKED TO WORKERS' RIGHTS

Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, writes on the AFL-CIO website about the relationship between the current economic recession and the suppression of workers' right to organize over the past three decades. As unions have been attacked, wages have stagnated, and economic growth has become increasingly driven by bubbles — the stock bubble in the 1990s and the housing bubble in the current decade. Baker calls for a return to wage-driven economic growth to pull us out of the recession and put us on a path toward long-term stability.

RLCC: The capitalist who hate egalitarianism did their best to bust the unions. The acceptance of regulated unions itself was a stopgap measure against even greater egalitarianism (anti-classism).

Jesus though put the last first. If everyone would do that, it would level everyone in the end into one class. However, it would never stop raising everyone higher than anyone will ever otherwise go on this plane of existence. That's what the capitalists don't understand. They retard everything including themselves.
