FF15: Much Ado About Nothing

At least inside the echo chamber of people who forgot, never had the chance to see, or never learned what a real worker-led labor movement looks like.

Unfortunately, publicist-choreographed, money-guzzling, one-day show strikes that are geared toward television crews and getting Hillary Clinton elected won’t create real working-class power and thus won’t do us much good in the long run. Rank-and-file workers need to take this out of the clutches of the bureaucrats if anything worthwhile and lasting is to come of it. It is probably too late for that though. Organized labor has once again taken tremendous opportunity and flushed it down the damn drain in its belief in the power of the almighty capitalist state.
