Please fire me. I just worked 20 hours and got a $9 pay check because of union dues.

Where do you work? I’m doubting this is true. It would be illegal to cause you to earn less than the federal minimum wage.

Isn’t getting paid terribly low wages go against the purpose of being in a union.

I don’t know what the labor laws are where they are from. But they made about $2.23 an hour. That’s not legal here in Washington state.

Union workers earn about 30% more than there nonunion conterparts.

It has been over a year now since the members of the union Familias Unidas por la Justicia went on strike demanding an end to wage theft, substandard housing, and racist abuse at Sakuma Brother’s Berry Farm. On Friday, July 11th hundreds of farm workers and community members who have pledged to act in solidarity with them came out full force to commemorate the day the strike began. The union’s messaging was clear: La Lucha Sigue (the struggle continues) until a contract is signed. Familias Unidas por la Justicia and their supporters (students, other unions, members of the Skagit Valley community) are dedicated to seeing this fight to the end. 

Our stance is not “WE LOVE BERRIES,” instead “We respect and recognize the dignity and rights of the women, men, children, and people who provide for us. We dedicate ourselves to supporting their struggle for just working conditions because that is what you do for friends, neighbors, and human beings.” 

Community is not about turning a blind eye to injustice. Holding one another accountable for the health and prosperity of every member is how communities are built and sustained.

Familias Unidas por la Justicia, now 500 members strong, is determined to protect the well-being and legal rights of its members. How anyone can be against that is baffling.

Senator Bernie Sanders gets it; the attack on unions is an attack on workers and the middle class. We are all in this together!

So why isn’t this all over the news? Had a group of Blacks murdered a white cop…

So wait… tf happened that all 3 of these drunk assholes killed a cop

well, apparently, the white woman was getting arrested by the officer - his name’s kevin jordan, by the way - and her boyfriend (bowman) saw she was getting arrested and shot k. jordan multiple times in the back.

here’s the article i read: 

http://abcnews.go.com/US/georgia-officer-killed-shot-back-waffle-house/story?id=23948960

lord, I was thought they arrested her.

From their Facebook

There will be a candlelight vigil on Friday night starting at 8PM at the old walmart parking lot. Participants should start gathering around 7:30. The vigil is open to the public. Officer Jordan’s family will be in attendance.”

Just in case anyone wants to attend

Conservatives love to fling rhetoric about assaulting a police officer being a horrible, heinous crime. But a black police officer gets killed in a red state, in a place of business, during a previously nonviolent arrest? Silence.

Ridiculous

Omg… My Spirit Hurts Bruh…
