Labor Leader Demands Tax Code for Working People to Replace GOP Tax Scam for the Rich

Labor Leader Demands Tax Code for Working People to Replace GOP Tax Scam for the Rich

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

Testifying before Congress on Wednesday, the leader of the nation's largest communications and media labor union urged lawmakers to pursue tax law reforms that serve the people of "main street," not the rich.

"Across the economy, large corporations are retaining profits for wealthy executives and shareholders rather than investing in the U.S. economy."
—Chris Shelton, CWA

How about Labor Management urging nationwide, wildcat strikes before the passage of a bill damaging to their members instead of putting on a show for the media after the damage is done. Not only do workers have to battle corporate management and the government, in most cases, they have to fight against their own leaders. Most of the teachers strikes are happening because the members tell their leadership to go pee up a rope and walk out anyway.
