Squeezing the Proles.. and Fixing the Polls

Meyerson Has succinctly summed up the global game being played out now---it's called " Squeezing the Proles".

So it’s come to this: When European employers look to the United States, they see roughly the same thing that U.S. employers see when they look to China: millions of low-wage workers who have all but lost the right to organize and a government intent on keeping things just the way they are.

The erosion of worker power and the growth of employer supremacy here have transformed the bottom half of the U.S. workforce into a vast exploitable mass worthy of a colonial backwater.
