    this is happening in the 21st century in the USA, the gross abuse of workers.
     Guess me me me and my my my never goes out of style.
    Will be in West Sac after work at Walmart, showing some support for the hard workers of America.

    What do we want? Universal health care! When do we want it? Now!

      It is not difficult to believe at all.  It's been going on and on since the American people were led to believe that happiness depends on things like houses, cars, designer this and that, and it has taken years to manifest into this.

      This little story right here is the foundation of the class war that is being fought by the people at the bottom of the work/pay scale.  Not only that, but this election didn't do a damn thing to gain back our status as humanity and the power of the song that seemed to be so vital to the campaign.  Did you hear Springsteen sing, "We Take Care of Our Own" at any of those events?

      Like hell we do.  We do this kind of #$%^ to people who want to do better.  We step on them when they're down.  The mom with the premature baby got to me.  And on top of her pain she had a STACK of medical bills that she could never pay.  So Medicaid paid them for her.

      They like to call these people all kinds of names and put them down, but this sick society we live in created this.  What is the damn Dept. of Labor doing to correct this wrong?  I bet they are doing nothing.

      Sad story.  This is American in November 2012.
