So I’ve decided my internet soapbox needs a break. I need to get into the real world and get energized! Tomorrow (okay, later today the 21st) a large rally will be held at Victoria Park in London to support the locked-out Electro-Motive employees.
I’m not connected with Electro-Motive in any way, nor am I a union member, however I feel we must stand together so that Canada continues to *have* a middle class. We do not have a division of 99% vs 1% like the United States but our division is closer to 85% or 90% with just 10-15% of people controlling the wealth.
If we do not stand up for ourselves we will find ourselves in worse shape – with few jobs offering a living wage indexed to inflation, a pension plan, medical benefits or simple job security. I haven’t been to a political rally in over 15 years but I intend to be there tomorrow! Who else will be attending?
