This one is for “the Las Vegas 98,”

I’d call them ‘the crazy 98’s’ of late,

to have the gumption to stand up for

their rights and secure their fate,

to send a message of strength in

numbers more than weakness to be…

Paulina Corona said,”This is a union,

and everybody is in it together,” we see,

for to many have walked away from

their support for what looked easy…

to lose backing of your voice [of your

rights] is to then feel so darn queasy,

the union is the condom between you

and the company you work for, to true,

and without any damn protection here

is to learn you just might be through.

Has this country gone that soft… that superficial… that they would give up their chance to improve: working conditions, reasonable pay for work [labor] done, humane treatment over “we’ll treat you any damn way we want to” or concern for the future for a  I want it now mentality? Sad when you think of it this way so when I see people sticking together I have to say,”Hats off to you… for standing up and not caving in.”

Labor is such a black AND white issue that effects us all. Without standing together we all lose.
