If you really want an overall picture of how American busunesses have been messing over American workers for generations, and the reasons, which include far more than unions, here's an interesting historical lesson from John Kennedy, from 1952. He was there while it was going on, and he has a far more cokmprehensivce idea of it than you do, George:
Here's another Obama ****-up; they're discontinuing the White House tours, but their administration is giving Egypt $450 million.
Our government is so screwed up, they don't know up or down! Bunch of incompetents!
As long as I can remember, all past presidents have said that the White House belongs to the American people. It's paid for by our tax dollars, and operated by the National Park Service.
Ryan Plan Could Give $400,000 Tax Cut to Richest

It's a little early to judge the full impact of the new House budget plan offered by Paul Ryan. While the plan details the taxes it would cut, it doesn't detail the taxes it would increase to keep revenues the same.

But a new analysis shows that the Ryan plan (at least the part that's been announced) would cut taxes for just about everyone, with the top earners getting the biggest tax cuts.
According to an analysis by the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, overall taxes would fall by an average of $3,000 per taxpayer, raising after-tax incomes by five percent.
The top one percent of earners - those households making more than $575,000 - would see their taxes fall by an average of $225,000. Those making $1 million or more a year would see an average tax cut of $408,000 a year.

Households making $50,000 to $75,000 would see their taxes cut by around $1,100 a year.
Of course, we don't know what taxes would be increased to offset the plan's proposals. The house budget would repeal the Alternative Minimum Tax, enact ordinary income tax rates of 10 percent and 25 percent, repeal the 2010 health-care reform and reduce the corporate tax rate to 25 percent.
In total the changes would reduce revenues by $5.7 trillion over 10 years - an amount that would have to be made up in other tax increases to remain "revenue neutral," or to not add to the deficit.

"The changes specified in the budget would reduce revenues by nearly $6 trillion over 10 years," said Roberton Williams of The Tax Policy Center. "That's a big revenue hole that has to be picked up somewhere else."
A Ryan spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.

GOP: We’ve been lying all along
Boehner's admission that we don't really have a debt crisis reveals his party's ulterior, program-cutting motives
BY DAVID SIROTA
But suddenly, thanks to yesterday’s declarations by Boehner and Ryan, the charade’s most sacred lie has been exposed. In acknowledging that “we do not have an immediate debt crisis,” GOP leaders are admitting that there is, in fact, an alternative. They are also admitting that their longtime claims to the contrary were ends-justify-the-means tactics to manufacture an unnecessary panic — one that they hoped would scare America into abruptly accepting the kind of draconian policies polls show the public opposes.
Now that the truth is out, maybe a more reasoned debate can begin and more pragmatic policies can finally take center stage.
