What are they really after? Connect these 7 dots.
#1, they're against extending unemployment benefits to people
who have been out of work for more than 6 months,
even though there're still only 1 job for every 3 unemployed.
#2, they don't want to raise the minimum wage
even though today's Federal minimum is 25 percent below what it was in 1968,
adjusted for inflation.
#3, they're against extending Medicaid benefits to millions of low-wage workers.
#4, they want to cut food stamps.
#5, they refuse to invest in education or job training.
#6, they don't want to rebuild America's crumbling infrastructure
or add any other jobs program.
And #7, they're out to bust unions.
You see pattern here, it's waging a war against the poor and working class,
in order to keep people down. Because when you're unemployed,
without any support, without any bargaining power, and you have to feed your family.
You're desperate.
And when you're desperate, you'll take whatever they're willing to pay you
even if it's next to nothing.
And you won't dare make a fuss.
You won't complain about the unsafe work conditions,
or toxic chemicals leaking out of the storage tanks, or anything else.
You won't run the risk of trying to form a union. You won't get involved in politics.
You won't make a ruckus or rock the boat in any way.
You'll take whatever they choose to give you, because you are sinking.
Make no mistake, this war against the poor and working class is designed to make sure
Americans who've been losing ground for 30 years
don't dare do anything about it.
Without extended unemployment benefits, a declining real minimum wage,
no Medicaid, no food stamps, no education, job training or jobs program, and no union.
You'll do exactly as they tell you and that's fine with them.
But it's bad for America.
As a first step to stop this war on the poor and working class,
call your senator and demand the senate-passed extended emergency unemployment benefits.
As a second step, watch "Inequality for All" and get the big picture.
