Democratic Socialism

Big GM plant in Lordstown, Ohio is shutting down ending thousands of good union GM jobs as well as high paid jobs (including benefits) with GM suppliers.

Thousands of the formerly middle class Blue Collar workers now scrabble for ………………………….

………………………………….. low wage no benefit McJobs at Walmart or McDonalds or delivering pizzas. 

During my life time, scientific advances and automation have made American manufacturing ever more profitable and ever less labor intensive. All of the bigger profits and advantages have accrued to the corporations and the ultra rich factory owners. Wages and benefits constantly erode for American working people. Not just for these factory workers directly affected either, but all down the job food chain, as the “market value” of labor cheapens across the board.

Democratic Socialism is the simple idea, that American workers should share in the fruits and profits created by new technology and ever changing conditions.
