A toast to Steven Slater | SocialistWorker.org

This year has had the highest job flight ever. People who stayed at their jobs for fear of the market only to be treated worse by their employers and customers are fleeing their jobs to anything else. I hope that the rising pressure from the working class leads to stronger unions and a return to worker’s rights. Remember when employees had rights and when the bosses actually backed up the employee when something went wrong? You can’t keep yourself at 100% for that long before something gives. Americans produce over double what we did forty years ago but we get compensated less for this hard work. This can’t be sustained.
