⛓️ Prison For Union Busters Bankers are leeches and most of them belong in prison. They create negative value and steal resources from our children.
💸 Raise Our Wages A single income used to support a family, that standard of living was stolen from us
😡 Venting Billions For A Stock Buyback While Doing Mass Layoffs. Never Believe They Care About Workers.
💥 Strike! More than 600 Portland city workers have walked off the job. Workers represented by the union Laborers Local 483 officially went on strike early Thursday after nearly a year of negotiations. The workers have been without a contract since June 2022.
💥 Strike! Teaching and research members make an average of $19,500 a year - a salary that is impossible to live on in Philadelphia. It's time Temple University negotiated a fair contract with living wages for graduate workers. #TempleUnionMade #Strike
🤝 Join A Union The psychological and societal impacts of layoff culture are beginning to take their toll. This isn't about a recession, profit, or even worker quality. It's about seizing back the bargaining power they lost during the COVID-19 pandemic through fear tactics and intimidation.
Just did an interview where the HR lady said "I can't tell you what the pay range is for that position".
I told her I would pass then, as I didn't want to play games.
She seemed shocked as she started stumble over her words.
I set time aside for this interview. I could have been playing video games. 😂
But seriously, you can't even tell me what the range of pay is? Just another tactic to pay someone the least amount of money.
💥 Strike! More than half a million workers are on strike across the UK today, the biggest strike in a decade. Schools are closed, railroads are halted, and government offices are empty. The unions are striking for better pay with the cost of living soaring.
There is a war raging in Europe. Our countries are in an energy crisis ''because of said war''. More families struggle to buy food or keep their homes warm. People with an education that work fulltime every week even struggle now.
Meanwhile, oil companies made a combined record profit of € 259 billion. Almost every company made record profits. And still, pay stays behind, big time.
Unless a big revolution happens i don't see anything changing for the better in the next 10 years. And a big revolution probably won't happen because: we are not clear on our goal, we have no leadership, our beliefs are fractured and we rather post 'funny' Tweets instead of actually changing anything.
We can vote all we want to hope for ''change'' but we just shuffle the same people and ideas around every 4 years. It's absolutely meaningless.
💥 Strike! Solidarity with the teachers, train drivers, university staff & civil servants of the United Kingdom going on strike today

📣 Advice I have arthritis, handed in my notice, and work kept begging me to stay. I put my foot down and they all fight back.
I have arthritis in my hands and told HR at work about it early December. It started getting worse mid-December and handed in my notice as I wanted to give them enough time before their major project in February, and for me to recover as I was in a lot of pain. HR asked me to kindly stay till February to help this project despite me only needing 1 month's notice (that would've meant leaving mid January) so I said fine, an extra few weeks to help them out. I can do that. They then asked me to work a few hours a day part-time from February as they couldn't find anyone to replace me so quickly and it would be a big help. I agreed. I then woke up Monday January 30th and my right hand wasn't working. I could move it now and then but it would stiffen up and not move/seize in a curved line making work really hard (a lot of typing). So I told HR and handed in my notice again saying that I couldn't do the few hours a day and I wanted to leave immediately without the 1 month notice period due to the inability to type now and then and the pain I was in, and said that I had been as supportive as I could be since my first notice email. The department then has a meeting about me behind my back and my line manager was angry I didn't say anything to her about my notice before handing it in and that I legally have to give one month's notice from my resignation, despite handing it in mid December to HR which she knew about/asked me to stay on till February. So now they want me to work 4 weeks with one intermittent hand to help the company and my colleagues are complaining about how my sudden departure (as I am refusing to go back/may need surgery if the arthritic joint is causing carpal tunnel) is making their jobs harder as the project releases this week, but it isn't sudden at all. I am feeling guilty enough and upset enough that I am losing my body's function and they do this and everyone is blaming me. What should I do?
