CONTRACT FEUDALISM

There is seemingly no depth to which US bosses won’t sink. The latest attempt to degrade and humiliate the work force is something called “no fault attendance." According to the Anarcho-Syndicalist Review #41 (www.syndicalist.org) “workers are penalized for every lateness or absence regardless of its cause.” The system works on a point scale, so many points for being late, six points and you are disciplined, twelve points and you are fired. “It doesn’t matter if workers are sick or had an accident on the way to work.” Welcome to 2005, which is starting to look an awful lot like 1005! Fired for attending a meeting, fired for supporting the wrong candidate, fired for blogs, now fired for being sick. How much longer will US workers put up with having their faces pushed into the mud by these psychopathic bullies? For more info on contract feudalism click

Great post, Larry. This "no-fault absenteeism" sounds like the other side of "time banks" and "paid time off."

I got his by the comment spam a couple of weeks ago, and started using word verification myself. Works great for me.

Speaking of things that work great, can I interest you in some penis pills....

Great post Larry,this truly is a feudal time again .we the citizen are pawns in a global system run by bullies(corporate ones)where collusion is the norm.Collusion in gazoline pricing,cars,collusion in pharmaceuticals,cell phones ,computers,education,books, music,food(malbouffe)and any consumer products you can imagine.And I thought collusion and monopoly were illegal illegal.
