Every Union member needs to be made aware of what kind of changes some of the nations largest corporations are pushing for in states Worker Compensation laws all over this nation. This article about Tyson Foods shows how they treat their workers as just disposable pieces of meat. It also clearly shows how they buy off elected officials to get laws written the way they want them. We all need to keep a close eye on how Indiana’s anti-worker governor and Republican controlled state legislature look at our states Workers Compensation Law. Over the years many union members haven’t paid to much attention to this law until it directly impacts them. Unfortunately it is usually a little late to change the law.

President Barack Obama is signaling that he plans to push for approval of a landmark trade agreement in the first half of next year, rather than waiting nearly 15 months for a "lame-duck" vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact.
In the Wednesday morning, Huffington Post employees sent out a letter to their colleagues calling for them to unionize. “We believe organizing is the best way both to preserve what’s already working and to bring about positive change,” they argued. “Simply, a union will give us a voice in our newsroom’s future.”

Many Americans know that the United States is not a democracy but a “corporatocracy,” in which we are ruled by a partnership of giant corporations, the extremely wealthy elite and corporate-collaborator government officials. However, the truth of such tyranny is not enough to set most of us free to take action. Too many of us have become pacified by corporatocracy-created institutions and culture.
he United States is in the final stages of negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive free-trade agreement with Mexico, Canada, Japan, Singapore and seven other countries. Who will benefit from the TPP? American workers? Consumers? Small businesses? Taxpayers? Or the biggest multinational corporations in the world?
