Joe Biden the union buster

Wednesday, November 30, 2022 1:07 PM
Who would have thought a corporate capitalist that has been in DC for decades would side with billionaires over workers. Just shocked! What do you all think about that bullshit? Political chess? Incompetence? Tongue fucking his rich donors? Is he doing the right thing?

This was expected. I wish they would go on strike anyways. Denying union wirers sick days is low

It just proves how weak and feckless demented Joe is. Someone told him to kick it over to congress, because it is Lose-lose for him. Stop the workers from striking, and you're anti-union. Affirm their right to strike, and you add catastrophic damage (during Christmas!) to an already downspiraling economy. Just pathetic.

If you recall, a couple months ago, ole Joe assured us he had eliminated any possibility of a strike. Now that the election is over……..

Put Joe Biden anywhere else on the planet and he is right wing. He has spent over 40 years fucking the American people and enriching his donors so this is 100% on brand for him.

“Put Joe anywhere else on the planet and he’s right wing” Right there is why we need to protect our borders. Say less. Realizing that having people here who actually would vote for less government is such a rare thing and the rest of the world is FUCKING STUPID!!!!!!!

Biden is right wing even by us standards. Democrats have moved to the right since Clinton. But at least some want to take the party back. The right is the loony bin these days though. Biden is basically the same as Manchin. They have most of the same donors. But yeah Biden is to the left of the alt right.

Biden is a thug; the Clintons were thugs; the squad are thugs ......big surprise. Everything Biden does is anti-union and Trump's protectionism against China was pro-union.

The House voted to approve the original rail agreement, and also approved a separate provision to increase the number of paid sick days from one to seven. It is now up to the Senate. As far as Biden - he is left of center. If you look at his legislative record there is a ton of stuff that helps average Americans, and many bills including the recent IRA that raise taxes on the wealthy and large corporations. Portraying him as favoring the rich over average workers is nonsense. The government is stepping in as a last resort to avert a rail strike by enforcing a deal that a majority of the unions already voted to approve.

I’m not a Biden fan, but he did the right thing. The country can’t have a freight strike now - would really fuck up the supply chain and economy. He burned some political capital going against the rail unions who he usually panders to.

Sometimes Presidents you don’t like do the right thing. The stupid people with Trump derangement syndrome could wrap there minds around that. Trump said China should have to account for the spread of Covid, a worldwide health and economic disaster, and the only reaction from the dummies was, “He’s racist!”

The strike would have been a huge victory for workers. The railroads would have no choice but to sign yhe contract. Biden fucked the workers over.

Union membership in 1975 among non-governmental employees was 23% of all private employees. It’s declined precipitously and steadily to 6% last year. Biden remade the NLRB and changed a bunch of the rules to make it MUCH easier to organize. There’s been more Union activity/interest/positive polling in the last year than there has been in decades. He is undoubtedly very union friendly. But threaten to derail shipping and travel (pun intended) just before Christmas travel and shopping? And he’s anti union for keeping them at work, with extra comp and benefits until they can negotiate a CBA? That’s compromise. Need proof it’s compromise? Everybody hates it. That’s the tell tale sign of a good deal.

Rail workers should strike anyway. If they weren't pussies, they would strike. Jimmy would be right if both sides had grudgingly agreed, settled the case and been pissed. Sorry, but that's what lawyers call a good settlement. Not when some third-party thug comes in and says this is the deal and both sides hate it. Thats what they do in China, Russia, Iran and other countries where politics are similar to what Buden is doing. Old fuck Biden cannot die soon enough.

Can you imagine the comments if they had let the strike happen and inflation went to 20%? That is a serious question to all those saying Biden is a thug. By the way, they also call him a pussy, so which is it?

Biden could have done a lot more. What he did benefited businesses not the workers.

"That is a serious question to all those saying Biden is a thug. By the way, they also call him a pussy, so which is it?" Why not both? Exhibit a: Putin

Donald Trump is a thug, like Biden, and a pussy, like Biden. Hey Hitler loved animals and was a vegetarian, so its seldom black and white. Biden is a thug because he isa liar, a cheat and assisted his son in committing crimes. No doubt that pissing away our armaments in Ukraine is payment for silence. He's a pussy because he bends over for Iran and China while they fuck him....
