Neoliberal Rule as Trauma

Reinhold Bianchi | With the absolutizing of profit maximization and its merciless amorality, the neoliberal elites pursue a ruthless dehumanization of workers by reducing them to a cost factor to be lowered. With the dehumanization of their victims, they dehumanize themselves and rob themselves of real human acknowledgment. more...  0 Comments

More Trouble in Latte-Land [The Nation]

Liza Featherstone | Today Starbucks faced legal and political trouble from its own workers. On the third anniversary of the founding of the IWW Starbucks Union, baristas in Chicago marched into a shop and told the manager they were signing up. (Starbucks workers have chosen to organize without government-mediated elections, through an interesting model called "solidarity unionism.") Meanwhile, baristas in Grand Rapids, Michigan announced that they were filing a legal complaint against the company for violating their organizing rights through unlawful surveillance and other questionable tactics.

A historic betrayal of auto workers

Jerry White | German automaker DaimlerChrysler announced yesterday that it had agreed to sell majority ownership of its North American Chrysler Group to the private investment firm Cerberus Capital Management for $7.4 billion. The sale paves the way for the carve-up of the 80-year-old auto company and a massive attack on the jobs, wages and health and retirement benefits of Chrysler’s 80,000 employees in the US and Canada.

Even before DaimlerChrysler officially announced the sell-off at a press conference in Germany, the United Auto Workers (UAW) issued a statement endorsing the sale of the company to Wall Street speculators, saying it was “in the best interests of our UAW members, the Chrysler Group and Daimler.”

DaimlerChrysler Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche praised the UAW for its support in the opening sentences of his remarks to the press. The surrender of the auto union was so immediate and abject it evidently took some auto and financial analysts by surprise. more...  11 Comments
