New business group plans to focus on Mo. elections

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- A new business group opposed to an expansion of union organizing powers says it plans to be heavily involved in Missouri's U.S. Senate and House races.

The group, called the "Coalition to Protect Missouri Jobs," opposes a federal initiative to provide union organizers access to the phone numbers and email addresses of employees at specific companies. It also opposes measures allowing unions to organize smaller subgroups of employees and shortening the time frame before unionization elections.

The coalition announced its formation Tuesday at the Missouri Capitol.

Group director Jason Klindt said the coalition is funded by businesses and affiliated with the national Workforce Fairness Institute. He says the group wants to survey candidates about union issues and "will be highly involved in educating voters" about their positions.

I am being sarcastic but let's work everyone for as low as a wage as we can, let's take their health insurance away or make it so expensive they couldn't get it if they wanted too. Let's have them work two or three jobs just to make enough to keep them in debt and make sure they can't save anything because the wages are so low and inflation is so high. Let's make sure we distroy the family unit. Let's do away with retirement plans, ss, disabillity, and medicare we don't want the little people to live long either. So when they work an inhuman amount of hours just to barely survive and die at an early age, we will have one less person in this overly populated world to take up space, but don't worry large comglumerates will still receive their government handouts in the form of subsidies while the rest of us pay for it with our health and well being. The constitution was changed by the supreme court it's now "We the corporation" not We the people. Only a few will survive the assault being launched on society as a whole and it won't be the working class. Organizations like this will make sure of it, while they enjoy the tax money provided by the working class for their enjoyment only, in the form of subsides. Check into it yourself those are oil, natural gas, chemical, energy and insurance corporations that receive your tax money, while your families will starve or die from lack of food and medical care. But that's OK we need to save the rich man some money. And our politicians on both sides just keep getting richer in the form of campaign contributions and lobbyist. They twist eerything to make it seem as if they have your best interest at heart when it's only their own that interest them. Don't fool yourself into believing these people are even considering you. They are currently working on legislation getting all pollution controls, contamination and their resposibillities for making the citizens sick because of pollution emmissions a thing of the past but it's all with your best interest at heart while they keep receiving your money in subsidies. How sad for us? and No politician cares! that's the truth. Dishonnesty is alive and growing. All under the disguise of creating jobs at your expense.
