TRIMET NEWS REPORTS

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

A full time employee with no family on Blue Cross will now have to pay $80/month for his/her health insurance.

A part time employee with no family on Blue Cross will now have to pay $153/mo of his/her insurance?

The question is WHY?

Two employees doing the exact same job with the exact same insurance yet the one making the least amount of money has to pay more?

Throwing Public Unions Under the Bus

The current Congress and President Obama are intentionally creating a nationwide anti-union atmosphere. The Democrats' silence over the above issues is, in fact, a signal of approval. Public workers are being targeted because they are the strongest sector of the national labor movement and their strength is incompatible with the agenda of the political-corporate establishment: making working people pay for the bank bailouts and two foreign wars.

Truthout.org

Public workers cannot be spectators in this unfolding drama. They must learn to act collectively. Unions must educate their membership about the gravity of the coming assault. Anti-union attacks must be resisted while alternatives are proposed; state funding must be increased by raising taxes on the rich and the corporations. If public employee unions are busted, the rest of the labor movement will be targeted next – but it will be too weak to defend itself.
