EXPOSED! – WATCH: TARGET’s New Anti-Union Propaganda Video – “Happy fun time is over”

Target Union

 

Like Walmart, many of Target’s employees are underpaid, forced to work part-time schedules and are forced to resort to safety nets like SNAP, housing assistance, Medicaid, and EITC while shareholders reap the benefits of their hard work and Target’s CEO, Gregg Steinhafel, makes almost $14,000 per hour–(that’s $3,000 per hour more than Walmart CEO Mike Duke)

So natuarally TARGET, like corporate welfare queen Walmart is TERRIFIED of unions coming into their stores

Now, Target has updated its anti-union training video that every Target team member is forced to watch–and it’s one of the worst things you will ever see.

Meet Ricardo and Dawn, the hip young Target anti-union propagandists (and of course non-union actors)! It’s their job to walk new employees through the dark and scary netherworld world that is the encroaching on them. The threat of unions to take away their freedoms and kill puppies (or is it take away their puppies and kill freedoms?).

Dawn highlights the fun “open-door” policy and explains that if a union comes in, that all will probably end. The dictatorial union bosses will force employees to sacrifice their ability to even maintain day-to-day communications with management without union involvement.

“But if the unions did try to organize our team members, chances are they would change our fast, fun and friendly culture,” Dawn adds later. That’s right–if you bring in a union, happy fun time is over!

The video warns that jealous unions “want what we have.” Why? What is so wonderful about Target that unions fear it so? “We’re a target, because unions are threatened by us. And here’s why: when we take business away from retailers that are unionized, those companies may downsize, reducing the number of employees. And that means the union loses members, which is a big problem for the union business. Did you notice how I just called it a business? Because that’s what it is.”

The 15 minute video is complete and utter Koch brothers bullshit.

Avoid TARGET at all cost.  Its nothing more than a Walmart type pig with lipstick.

Video – Tea Bagging Asshat "Journalist" Andrew Klavan Spreads Propaganda About Public Unions

Andrew Klavan who describes himself as a “conservative jounalist” and who I describe as no better than a middle aged, tea bagging, jewish male Tokyo Rose.  Has made a cutesy little propaganda video for his fellow GOPer’d and teajhadist called: Behold! Your Public Sector Unions at Work.

So take a minute and watch this sophomoric, oversimplified, full of shit cute little propaganda cartoon which is perfect for moron teabagger consumption.  And think to yourself why he never mentions that the public sector worker pays TAXES too and the fact that Klavan never mentions that he himself is a member of The Writers Guild Of America  and used to describe himself as a liberal. I guess times got hard and he just rolled with the flow.

Video – Watch Pro Union Wisconsin Protestors Break Out In Song Comparing Protests To "Les Miserables"

A group of Madisonians perform a protest song from Les Misérables during the demonstrations in the Capital against Scott Walker and SB11. This was organized in less than 24 hours.

Of course the TEABAGGERS are going INSANE over this.

I thinlk its very relevant.  But at this point I think “A Tale of Two Cities” storming of the Bastille would be better.

BLOG SWARM – TWITTER SWARM! – Ohio Senate Bill SB 5 – Anti Union, Anti-Gay, and Un-American FIGHT BACK TUESDAY! Call and FLOOD The OH State House!

As I posted yesterday Ohio ReTHUGlicans and Tea Party loons are not only trying to screw over Ohio’s State Employees, Unions and blue collar workers workers but they’ve also secretly added an attack on LGBT Ohionas as well stuck into the middle of  the controversial Senate Bill 5.

We MUST put a drop to this.  This whole GOP loony Tea Party bullshit of taking away from the people of the State to balance the budget of their screw-ups and allowing them to use the power that they have to destroy the REAL Americans and also use their power to push a rabid bigoted hateful agenda.

It’s time to say enough of this bullshit.  We’ve played nice against the GOP and the Tea Party and it doesn’t work.  Face it. Nice guys don’t win.  It’s time to get angry and it’s time to have our voices heard. Because for us not to stand up and do something….anything and try and stop these assholes makes us just as bad as they are and then we deserve what we get.

Being “above it” and taking the “high road” is the reason why Democrats get walked all over.  Being “above it” and taking the “high road” is why Heath Care reform and become a lame watered down joke. Being “above it” and taking the “high road” and not fighting back against the GOP and Tea Baggers is why they are in power today and being “above it” and taking the “high road” is why 40 years after the Stonewall Riots we still not have equal rights and are treated as second class citizens.

First Wisconsin and now Ohio which has the nerve to not only to attack and try to bust up Unions but has to the nerve to bash LGBT Ohioans at the same time.

And let me make one thing perfectly clear.  This is not about the budgets.  It’s not about money.  These GOP bills are about busting up the Unions which are the last bit of muscle that the Democratic party has.  this is nothing more than the GOP trying to obtain absolute power so they can corrupt absolutely.

We ALL must do our best to stop them!

Today at The Ohio State House in Columbus there will be a massive protest Statehouse Against SB 5 and Kasich’s Anti-Worker Agenda but more than just physical protesters are needed.

I am calling on you ALL out there weather you live in Ohio or not to take 5 minutes and stand up and FIGHT against this Bill.  Weather you be gay, straight, black, white or purple.  If you are Pro Choice, Pro Gun Control, Pro Union, Pro Civil Rights, Pro Equality or just Pro Sanity we must ban together and PROVE that we will not let them do this and walk all over us.

Call  Ohio State House and tell them that you will NOT STAND FOR SB 5.  Lets jam the phone lines. And you know what?  You don’t have to be nice and polite.  Get angry.  BE ANGRY.  AND LET THEM KNOW IT!  Anger is an important weapon.  Tell them the truth.  Tell them whats in your heart and call them out!

Lets try to get as many phone calls and emails as we can to Columbus because if we don’t stop this now we are all in danger of losing whats left of our way of life.

Contact the Ohio State House and tell Gov. Kaisch and Lt. Governor Mary Taylor and tell them what you think about SB 5

Phone: (614) 466-3555
