The CEO of Dollar General recently acknowledged that his company stands to benefit from rising inequality. “As middle class continues to go away,” he said, the economy will create more of the chain’s “core customer.”
Dollar General is resisting attempts by employees at its Missouri stores to form — or even ask about — unions.

The Connecticut General Assembly 2017 Regular Session convened January 4th and adjourns June 7th
The President is out of control.
Not just Trump, but the presidency in general. The president currently can launch a war with no congressional approval, execute American citizens with no over site, approve wire tapping and spying with no warrant or justification, and seize anything they want in times of “emergency”. The empirical president is here
One of my biggest criticisms of Obama is that he cemented many of the unconstitutional powers in place that Bush had accumulated. Not only did obama leaves these powers in place, he legitimized them in an air of bipartisanship and expanded them through subsequent NDAAs. Now Trump pulls these levers.
Do you think Congress will finally step up and take their war powers back? Will they put an end to the empirical president?
Keep your eye on the UK General Election comming up in 7 weeks, Under the British Parliamentary system the Prime Minister and call an Election at any time within a 5 year period, this is what is called a “snap election”, Prime Minister Thersa May of the Conservative Party is a political oppurtunist who thinks she can solidify her majority if she wins and election now, Jeremy Corbyn who is the Leader of the Labour Party has an uphill battle, if he were to prevail it would be a boost for the American Progressive Movement, a Progressive victory in another English speaking Country with comparable inequality and social problems.
People who think the private sector and corporations in general are “run efficiently” are extremely ignorant.
I have never seen more waste in my life than I have in corporate America. Brand new working computers thrown in the trash, merely to create more “capital investment”.
Equipment that operates perfectly destroyed because it “no longer has salvage value”.
People continuously being trained and retrained because it’s “cheaper” to train new people yearly than to give raises.
Executive bonuses and stock options that are tied to stock price and not quality of products or services, or herald health of the company.
This is just the tip of the ice burg.
