Before you close the doors ...

Stop buying from runaway companies that evade paying taxes, like Burger King. Stop buying at companies that won't pay their workers a living wage, like Man Donald's' and Walmart/Sam's Club. You pay less by buying non-union but you pay twice; you pay the public assistance they have to take to survive. What would better serve our ends as union workers? Roundups and deportations, or paring fair wages and benefits? Who will pay your pension and social security without a crop of new workers? The union and the government have already spent all of the 'reserve' funds that were supposed to finance them. Why do you think unfunded pension plans like ours and social security are collapsing?
