This is what happens when workers band together and make demands. Special thanks to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders for rallying with the workers and drawing attention to their plight
Unions representing nearly 10,000 Disneyland workers accepted a contract that raises pay to $15 an hour beginning next year.
It’s not the workers costing taxpayers, it’s the greedy employer, Walmart, that refuses to pay people enough to survive!

Jeff Bezos is an immoral megalomaniac.
“His net worth this year has gone up $52 billion, more than the annual GDP of more than 100 countries, including Lebanon, Macau and Slovenia. The increase this year alone is more than the entire worth of Asia’s richest person, Jack Ma, chairman of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.”
All this and he can’t pay workers a livable wage or give them bathroom breaks. Bezos = trash. #BoycottAmazon

Please stop using Amazon
Amazon workers on strike have also called on consumers to boycott Amazon in solidarity with their struggle against the e-commerce giant.
Utilities like National Grid have no issue overcharging and gouging their captive customers because they are a monopoly. This is how they treat their employees though
Unionized gas workers locked out by National Grid have officially lost their health care.
They all pretend to be progressive until it’s time to treat their employees fairly. Shame on planned parenthood!
“But it’s especially troubling for a reproductive rights organization to take an anti-union stance, given that unions are central to feminist progress.”
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is challenging its staff’s decision to join the Service Employees International Union. Shame on them

He was later imprisoned for the relationship and drafted into the army when he was killed in action, whereas his partner was murdered in the concentration camps.

If profits were shared equitably amongst all, workers wouldn’t need to fight automation. We have the technology to automate most jobs at this point, it’s only bad because when it happens people lose their income. If we all spread in the production, automation would mean more leisure time for us all.
Increasing automation has become a sticking point alongside other issues that could see workers bring city to a standstill
