My apologies if there’s been too much Wiley on my blog for your liking.  Just geeked for 100% publishing.  Get live.

Wiley - Average Worker.

We’re already used to seeing the regulars on Fox’s Cashin’ In attacking minimum wage workers and and supporting companies that want a race to the bottom on wages and claiming that we don’t need the government to interfere because the “free market” will take care of everything instead.

So what happens when a business decides to buck the trend we’ve seen where CEO pay is hundreds of times higher than the average worker at most companies, and actually pay all of their workers at least $70 thousand a year? They go on the attack, of course.

After a lead in explaining what Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price announced this week and showing some snippets of interviews with him, here’s how host Eric Bolling started things off on this Saturday’s show:

BOLLING: Okay Michelle, thoughts on this guy? Personally I think he’s a socialist, but your thoughts?

Yes, or course he must be a “socialist” to believe in pay equity.

No other wealthy and industrialized nation in the world has a healthcare and education epidemic like we do nor a staggering amount of income inequality as we do. The average CEO now makes a 354 to 1 ratio salary to the average full time worker. 50% of all workers over 25 make under the minimum wage which if adjusted with inflation would amount to around $30 p/hr. The top 1% has obtained 95% of all wealth in this country and Fortune 500 companies now make an average of $42k per employee. At what point does this wealth “trickle down”?

We must stop favoring plutocratic Politicians who keep telling us corporations are “people” too. And we must stop believing that unions are bad because they bankrupt businesses when they are the only Democratic means for an employee’s voice in the workplace. Can we please just diminish the 1950s Red Scare tactics of the ultra-rich who brainwashed Americans not only into endless War but into delusion that the ideologies of Socialism and Communism are a singular Tyrannical entity; without actually attempting to understand the complete differences between the two. Adopting from these ideologies we have privileges such as social security, medicaid/care, public parks, workman’s comp, 40 hour work weeks and salaries, so why stop there?

We must bring Democracy back from the dead and into the hands of the majority, not the few. They keep reminding us that Corporations are the ones who provide jobs for the working class. “A rising tide lifts all boats”? Yeah, if everyone actually had a boat. How about, “a rising tide sends all jobs overseas”?

It’s exciting to see someone who is a brave enough to stand up to the abusive policies of those who have deteriorated the working class for their own benefits. And who will ask each of his opponents who they’re working for: Us or Them? Even if he doesn’t win, he’s going to shove it in every single one their faces. Democrat or Republican.

Australian workers’ living standards falling, think tank warns

A new report outlines how Australian workers’ living standards are falling, with real wages going backwards in 2013 for the first time in over a decade.

The report by progressive think tank Per Capita finds that the average worker saw a $118 fall in the purchasing power of their pay in 2013, as wages failed to keep pace with inflation.

Tumblr at work

So I am watching this training video about being overwhelmed with all these social media options at home (and work as this is work related crap). Then they mention Tumblr as a social Media.. I was actually surprised that they think the average worker at a large insurance company uses Tumblr!!

Good thing they don’t know what is on MY TUMBLR!

people who go study fields that are obviously ideologically biased and then treat what they’re taught there like the gospel truth, something objective, indisputable and undeniable and call people with varying points of view who challenge it “uneducated” are much more intellectually deficient than an average physical worker after like six years of primary school.

AP Calculus AB and BC

consider thug!takano. consider thug takano jumping onodera but failing because his friend haitani is an asshole who insists on making these jobs harder than they should be. consider thug takano breaking into onodera’s apartment while he’s out, planning on making him keep quiet about it, but onodera’s neighbor from across the street, chiaki, saw takano scaling the fire escape and calls onodera to tell him, hey, some thug is scaling your fire escape should i call the police? but onodera’s father is a police officer who was against onodera moving to the city in the first place since he didn’t trust ritsu to be out on his own. onodera’s only been living there as an average office worker for a month and he simply can’t ask someone else for help just because he’s having some street trouble with a thug. he tries to resolve the situation by himself and takano, never one for unnecessary violence, finds it hilarious when onodera bursts into his own apartment, brandishing chiaki’s (unlicensed) hand gun like he knows how to use it, especially since the safety’s still on.
