Robert Scheer on the Economic Crisis

Will Unions Respond to Economic Crisis?

  • Unions have lost their competitiveness in the global economy.
  • Workers have maintained their consumption, but not their jobs.
  • Tax cuts mostly go to debt servicing.
  • American workers have lost their security.
  • World economy dependent on what happens in the U.S.
  • Absence of militancy promotes little change (thank you Ronald).
  • U.S. can’t compensate with sales to the Chinese working class. That is not happening.
