The O'Bummer stimulus fell flat on its face. The only two
people who haven't yet noticed and are totally clueless are
Obama and his mentally challenged sidekick, Biden.
I suspect even that skank Pelosi knows where they are
going: OVERSEAS.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_overseas_hiring

While "Slow" Joe Biden still blathers on about job growth
"Way beyond his wildest expectations" and O'Bummer still
flaps on about shit that's "just around the corner", the people
who finance his pipedream are heading across the waters,
where the tax tables are long-term public knowledge and
not disguised in Obamaesque 2000 page voodoo economic scripts and secondly,
where the local governments don't cozy
up to the extortion of unions.

All one has to do is take a look at his czars ... not one single Engineer
among the lot, but all lawyers, who've never seen a
lawsuit they didn't like, but too stupid to hang a picture on the
wall, since a hammer is too complicated an instrument for the parasites.
They do for the Obama Government what they did
in private life: They rip people off, under the guise of the law, made by
lawyers, for lawyer. They collectively call it:
HOPE and CHANGE
... specifically, they "Hope" to get your "Change" transferred into their
bank accounts ... thank you O'Bummer ... when you run
out of excuses, there's always George Bush to blame.

Hagar's no doubt been sued by his homeowner's association (for being a

is generally correlated with the inability follow even the simplest rules
that govern society. Hagar has probably been cited for failure to bring in
his trash cans after trash day and believes he has a constitutional right to
follow his own schedule. What will be really funny is when Hags gets testy
with a TSA agent who is patting down his package.

The O'Bummer stimulus fell flat on its face. The
only two
people who haven't yet noticed and are totally
clueless are
Obama and his mentally challenged sidekick, Biden.
I suspect even that skank Pelosi knows where they
are
going: OVERSEAS.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_overseas_hiring
While "Slow" Joe Biden still blathers on about job
growth
"Way beyond his wildest expectations" and O'Bummer
still
flaps on about shit that's "just around the
corner", the people
who finance his pipedream are heading across the
waters,
where the tax tables are long-term public
knowledge and
not disguised in Obamaesque 2000 page voodoo
economic scripts and
secondly,
where the local governments don't cozy
up to the extortion of unions.
All one has to do is take a look at his czars ...
not one single Engineer
among the lot, but all lawyers, who've never seen
a
lawsuit they didn't like, but too stupid to hang a
picture on the
wall, since a hammer is too complicated an
instrument for the parasites.
They do for the Obama Government what they did
in private life: They rip people off, under the
guise of the law, made
by
HOPE and CHANGE
... specifically, they "Hope" to get your "Change"
transferred into their
bank accounts ... thank you O'Bummer ... when you
run
out of excuses, there's always George Bush to
blame.
Let us see a copy of all the wonderful
recommendations and better plan
of action that you offered the Obama and Joe Biden
team that was
asking, and still is asking for public input.
I suppose your "Redneck New World Order" heading
might have gotten
your suggestions or recommendations excluded right
off the bat, but
otherwise what exactly was in the core context of
your better plan?

Democrats proceed with $190B jobs, tax plan
By DAVID ROGERS | 5/20/10 10:19 AM EDT
In a roll of the dice, Democrats moved Thursday to take up a roughly $190
billion-plus jobs and tax package next week, hoping to complete passage
before Memorial Day and forestall threatened cuts that would affect the
elderly and the unemployed.


An unwieldy amalgam of state aid, infrastructure investments, tax cuts and
extended jobless benefits, the massive bill is a sleeping giant in this
political year and uniquely captures the hard choices facing a government
beset by record deficits and an uncertain economy.


Included are routine tax cut extensions but also landmark reforms and a
quadrupling of the fees now paid by oil companies to cover damages for
spills like the BP disaster in the Gulf. Going into November's elections,
the spending represents a huge, costly, almost defiant commitment by
Democrats to preserve a safety net for the unemployed and restore stability
to Medicare reimbursements - important to physicians and their elderly
patients.

The O'Bummer
Brain-dead Ronnie Ray-Gun started the job destruction.

America is fundamentally divided! Like no time since the 1850s, that
ominous decade leading up to the Civil War a century and half ago. And
like a political slipknot, the rope strands will continue to tighten
before they loosen once more.

The vision that burned on TV screens across America on election night
2000 remains. Changed in essence neither by acts of terror or
subsequent war. An electronic ghost, its shadow impixelated still on
our silicon culture. The story of our time—the struggle between the
remnants of the old Roosevelt tradition and the new Reagan-Bush
coalition, the latter resurrecting in yet another form the 1920s
Coolidge-Hoover vision of America.

A new physics has penetrated the molecular structure of America. A new
political equation for the 21st century. A political E=MC2 Now P=CM3.
M for Money, Media, and uncompromising religious Morality! C for
chronic global economic crisis. P for Power. A dark energy ripping
apart the quantum structure of civil society in America. A political
entropy, growing in force as the various elements of the American
social fabric accelerate ever faster in opposite directions.

THE DANGEROUS CONVERGENCE

At no time in the last century—not in the worst years of the 1930s
Depression or the upheavals of the 1960s—has America faced a
potentially more dangerous convergence of several fundamental forces.

Structural Economic Crisis

One such force is Economic. Economic crises are generally viewed from
the perspective of cyclical events. But underlying the periodic
cycles, known as recessions, are more fundamental longer term
structural change. Its laws of movement not always as well understood.
Today structural and cyclical forces interact in new, unforeseen or
unanticipated ways. And with each passing month we enter new
territory.

The twin phenomena of massive exportation of jobs and of jobless
recovery under George W. Bush are not new, but have been developing in
intensity and duration following each recession since1980. More than
five million quality jobs were lost on George Bush’s watch between
2001-2004. Jobs that continue to disappear at an alarming rate,
churning over, being replaced by part time, by temporary work, by the
growing millions of marginally self-employed, the uncounted millions
of hidden unemployed, by the discouraged and underemployed, and by
lower paid service work at, or near, minimum wage. American workers
have not shared in general productivity gains now for three decades.
Real average hourly wages and earnings of the 100 million plus workers
that constitute the core of the American working class have not risen
at all for at least as long. Working class families have compensated
by working more than 500 hundred additional hours per family per year,
and by taking on historic levels of installment debt. More than forty
five million Americans have no health coverage whatsoever, and tens of
millions more barely any at all. Retirement income and security are
fading for millions, while social services are cut, tax burdens shift
from the rich to the rest, and education quality declines as costs
rise.

Meanwhile the world moves inexorably toward more deeply synchronized
economic cycles and intensifying global competition. New forces sweep
the American corporate elite along in an endless search of new markets
abroad. A search intensifying within the U.S. as well, as the very
interstices of American society itself are scoured relentlessly for
new possibilities for commodification—all corners of culture, all
manner of personal relationships, and all variety of once available
public goods and services. Education. Government services. Public
security. The military. Even trafficking in human body parts. Nothing
is allowed to remain outside the hungry maw of the market.

This is not the Great Depression of the 1930s. But neither is it the
typical post World War II recession. U.S. monetary policy has
prematurely begun to turn restrictive once again, paltry tax cuts for
workers have been spent, the mortgage refinancing boom as a source of
household asset income is over, jobs in the millions recycle from high
paid to low, flow to east and south Asia at alarming rates, while
chronic high oil and gas prices continue to decimate workers’ incomes—
a short list of multiple factors that all but ensure another recession
in the US economy within the next 24 months and a resumption of
synchronized global downturn among the major industrial economies, a
number of which have already turned the corner on the descending road
to recession.

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney have both publicly declared we have
entered a period of endless global warfare—with forces beyond our
shores intent on destroying the American way of life from ‘without’.
Meanwhile the undeclared, unmentioned but no less endless economic war
continues being waged and intensified from ‘within’, no less
effectively destroying the material foundations of that same American
way of life.

Assault on Civil Liberties

A second fundamental force at play today is the current assault on
Civil Liberties and the destruction of the most basic rights of
American democracy. Skulking behind the screen of the War against
Terrorism are those in key positions of power in Government and civil
society who actually believe there is too much democracy today in
America. Their attitude and viewpoint slips through public discourse
periodically to revealing true intent.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, darling of the Radical Right, in
a speech in Ohio stated he believed that Americans now had more
democracy than that guaranteed by the original U.S. Constitution. Some
of it could therefore be taken back and still remain within the
guarantees of that Constitution, in his view. More ominous still were
the words of General Tommy Franks, commander of U.S. forces during the
2003 Iraq War, who declared in his retirement interview that the next
major terrorist event in the U.S. would mean the imposition of martial
law. According to Franks, there will always be a war between the Rich
and Poor. It is the natural order of things. Under cover of section
213 of the Patriot Act government agents may secretly burglarize homes
without notice, and do so; obtain library records; seize bank,
telephone and internet accounts while issuing ‘gag’ orders on
businesses preventing them from notifying customers of such acts; and
employ roving wiretaps on citizens never accused of any crime.
Meanwhile plans for expanding the Patriot Act quietly move forward,
below the public radar, including draconian measures allowing the
government to strip Americans of their very citizenship and deport
them to foreign lands in the event of another terrorist attack.

At the same time and in violation of the 1876 Posse Comitatus Act
passed more than a century ago to prohibit military involvement in
U.S. domestic politics, the Army’s Special Forces are now engaged in
preparing police departments across America in the use of urban
warfare tactics. A new Northern (US) Command that never existed before
in US history has been established to deal with potential conflicts
within the continental U.S. For the first time in memory the regular
Army was ordered to standby for possible intervention in social
protests that occurred against the World Trade Organization (WTO)
meetings in Seattle and Miami. And ‘What If’ reports circulate and are
debated within American war colleges and among high levels of the
planning staff in the US Army considering scenarios for a coup d’etat
in the U.S. in 2012.

The still unfolding assault on liberties and rights is more serious
than anytime in the last century—including compared to that of the
Cointelpro program of the 1960s, McCarthyism of the 1950s, the illegal
internments of American citizens without due process in the 1940s, the
aborted military coup against Franklin Roosevelt in 1933, or the
infamous Attorney General Palmer raids following world war I. These
latter were not official policy entrenched across major government
power bases in the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. In
contrast, today efforts to rollback civil liberties and democracy are
the institutionalized policy of the current Bush administration, its
many radical friends in Congress, and its ultra-conservative
supporters on the U.S. Supreme Court. Only the politically gullible
and naïve can believe there are no plans, awaiting only the next
provocative terrorist event almost certain to strike America’s power
grid or a major port facility, to deny Americans even more of their
basic civil liberties.

The growing threats to American democracy since September 11, 2001
have not taken place in an historical vacuum. Rather they are the
latest in a chain of events that include the brazen, politically
motivated impeachment of a President in 1998, the constitutionally
questionable selection of George Bush as President in 2000 by the
Supreme Court, and the passage of the most comprehensive legislative
assault on the Bill of Rights in all of U.S. history. Like an
undetected necrosis within the body politic, however, they spread and
undermine the sense of legitimacy in the U.S. political system across
large segments of the U.S. population.

Growing Cultural Divide

A third fundamental force converging with the above two is the gaping
Cultural Divide in American today which grows ever wider with each new
defining event. Fanning the flames of this divide has been the
conscious policy of the Bush regime and the ascendant radical wing of
the American corporate elite. At the heart of this cultural
polarization in America has been the damp pall of religious morality
descending upon the political landscape since the latter years of the
1970s. The right wing of the Republican party leadership has learned
well, and has developed into a political art, the ability to distract
the American populace with fabricated moral values and issues—as they
pick everyone’s pockets while backs are turned.

As their checkbooks and wallets shrink, American workers from Kansas
to California to the Carolinas are left debating and fighting over
peripheral issues such as gay marriage instead of the economic
destruction of the American family, abortion instead of the
miscarriage of American democracy, prayer in schools instead of the
wholesale failure and eventual privatization of the American education
system, stem-cell research instead of the absence of health care
coverage whatsoever for 45 million American citizens or the lack of
adequate health care for another 50 million more.

The problem of religion in politics today, as ever in the past, is
that religion is the enemy of democracy. Democracy is based upon
compromise. But how do you compromise with the ‘Word of God’?
Political compromise to the religious mind is synonymous with heresy.
Sooner convince a devout racist that all men are created equal. Or a
fascist that all men and women are born with the same inalienable
rights. And we know where that all leads.

With the lid on the bottle of the religion genie now removed, cultural
conflicts and divisions in America will continue to deepen. Much of
the cultural polarization growing in America today has its ultimate
roots in differences between secular vs. religious morality and
values. At this very moment the Radical Right are financing and
consciously promoting the splitting of traditional religious
organizations in America, protestant and catholic alike, into
conservative and liberal factions. Meanwhile George Bush provides
their organizations tax cuts and ‘faith based’ handouts in payment for
election assistance and political services rendered. The cultural and
religious polarization will therefore continue to worsen, as the right
wing of the Republican Party coalition continues, as it has since the
late 1970s, to promote religion and religious morality as a domestic
political weapon.

The Historic Confluence

The civil conflicts and disturbances of the 1960s were sporadically
political and marginally cultural, but never fundamentally religious—
and even less so economic. The conflicts of the 1930s were primarily
economic but did not produce a corresponding institutional restriction
of democratic rights. And the conflicts of those years were certainly
were not religious or cultural in character. In contrast, our current
period is, and will continue to be, characterized by growing civil
conflict over basic economic interests, over democratic rights and
civil liberties, and over secular vs. religious morality and values.

The coming conflicts in America will therefore be at one and the same
time economic, political, and religious-cultural. Either one would be
serious development in its own right. Their confluence therefore is of
particular import. Furthermore, it is likely all three will be
exacerbated by constant war, continuing in the middle east and
possibly coming in the Caribbean basin as well.

THE CENTURY-LONG AMERICAN PERESTROIKA

American history shows that every few decades the corporate elite and
their political representatives restructure the economy to exploit
opportunities for expansion in a changing world. To assist the
restructuring, the domestic ‘rules of the game’ between Business and
Labor, the social relations between their respective associated groups
and constituencies, are redefined and changed.

Over the past century the restructuring and redefining of ‘rules of
the game’ have occurred on at least four separate occasions.

The First And Second Corporate Offensives

The first restructuring and change in the rules occurred at the turn
of the 20th century, as the U.S. began to reposition itself as a
newcomer and competitor on the global economic chessboard. The Spanish-
American War, the first offshore colonies in the Caribbean and
Philippines, the acquisition of the Panama Canal, the corresponding
growth of corporate trusts, and the creation of the income tax and the
Federal Reserve system to ensure revenues and to regulate the flow of
financing for the new economic expansion were the most notable
elements of this first restructuring.

A second restructuring and change in the rules of the game took place
in the 1930s in the wake of the Great Depression. Unlike the first,
now corporate interests found themselves on a definite defensive and
the rules of the game were changed again in order to maximize the
effectiveness of that defensive. Economic regulation of business was
introduced to reduce volatility and instability in the economy, in
particular in the critical sectors of Transport, Communications,
Energy, and Power generation. The Banking System was overhauled, rules
on foreign trade rewritten, and a new emphasis on fiscal policy tools
introduced. This was the ‘business side’ of what was then called the
‘New Deal’ at the time. At its core, the New Deal of the 1930s was as
much, if not more, about ensuring business stability as about
containing labor conflicts.

On the ‘labor side’ of the New Deal changes in the rules of the game
were also introduced to stabilize an increasingly volatile labor force
by providing minimal retirement guarantees, by allowing workers and
unions to collectively bargain, assuring minimal working conditions,
temporarily permitting government employment as unofficial last
resort, and a host of other measures—all ultimately necessary as well
to support the new focus on assisting U.S. corporations dealing with
cut-throat international capitalist competition and ensuring general
business stability.

A third restructuring took place in the immediate post World War II
period, as the American corporate elite repositioned itself for the
Cold War and prepared for an unprecedented, several decades-long
global economic expansion. At the heart of this third restructuring of
the past century was the establishment of the U.S. dollar as the
world’s currency, new rules and institutions governing world trade and
monetary regulation, the creation of bodies like the International
Monetary Fund, World Bank, and other U.S. dominated financial and
trade institutions. Further hallmarks of the third restructuring were
new innovations in the U.S. financial system, a thorough overhaul of
corporate and investment provisions contained in the U.S. tax code,
and the completion of the close integration of the U.S. government,
industry, and military begun during the second world war.

On the labor side in the post-World War II restructuring, some of the
rules of the game previously introduced in the 1930s were ‘re-
adjusted’ in a manner decidedly favorable to business. New legislation
in the form of the Taft-Hartley Act sharply shifted back the balance
of power between workers and their unions in favor of companies and
management. Rights to strike, organize and bargain were fundamentally
curtailed. The income tax was now permanently extended deeply down
into the working population—while guarantees of employment by the
government, promises of national health care, and assurances of civil
rights in education, housing, jobs made during the World War II period
were effectively abandoned.

The Third Corporate Restructuring & Offensive, 1946-1959

Corporate America has never accepted President Franklin Roosevelt’s
New Deal—that combination of policies and laws passed in the depths of
the 1930s recession that were designed to check the growing militancy
of American workers and unions while stabilizing the worst extremes of
the capitalist business cycle by means of regulatory policies and
other measures.

At the heart of the New Deal of the 1930s were laws that gave American
workers the right to form unions and bargain collectively (National
Labor Relations Act), that established the right to a minimal
retirement guarantee (Social Security Act), created a minimum floor
for chronically falling wages and hours (Fair Labor Standards Act),
provided emergency Government last resort employment to the jobless
(Works Progress Administration), while simultaneously providing
regulation for the worst abuses by corporations in the utilities,
energy, banking, Wall St., and other industries that were a major
cause of the Depression itself.

Since the New Deal, Corporate America has continually probed, tested,
and explored ways to neutralize and roll it back. At times it has
moved more aggressively in this direction. At other times less so. But
it has never surrendered the basic goal of reversing the New Deal
someday altogether.
With the return of a Republican Congress in 1946, yet another effort
was launched to change the ‘rules of the game’ between Business and
Labor at the sphere of production level. That effort culminated in the
passage of the anti-Labor Taft-Hartley Act of 1947. Taft-Hartley took
back many strategic advantages unions and workers had prior to its
passage—not least of which was the right of recently formed unions to
provide jobs to workers through a closed shop union hiring hall. As a
consequence of Taft-Hartley, workers in the newly formed, fast
growing, and economically strategic unions in the manufacturing sector
would not be permitted to look to the union for their jobs. The
employer would henceforth be the source of that most critical
foundation of loyalty: the hiring process.

With Taft-Hartley, unannounced strikes were now also declared illegal.
Strikes of major geographical or nationwide impact could also be
terminated for up to nearly 80 days by federal edict and injunction.
Management rights were expanded dramatically. Federal government
bureaucrats now by law were required to become involved in all
collective bargaining negotiations prior to and following any strike.
And occupation of corporate property by workers (i.e. sit down
strikes) was strictly prohibited, solidifying prior court decisions
outlawing the same.

Subsequent further revisions to the new ‘rules of the game’ were
passed later in the 1950s in the form of the Landrum-Griffin Act,
along with multiplying court and administrative decisions. These
deepened the original intent of the earlier Tart-Hartley Act—i.e. the
neutralization of union power at the point of production! With Landrum-
Griffin, remaining loopholes permitting strike action previously not
addressed by Taft-Hartley were disallowed. In particular sympathy
strikes were no longer tolerated. Nor would workers and unions be
allowed to refuse or handle products made by other workers in a
dispute with their employer.

By the end of the decade of the 1950s some of the most effective means
of expressing union power were thus stripped away. The back of much of
union and worker solidarity was thus broken. Key social relations
between corporations and workers had been fundamentally restructured.
The ‘rules of the game’ significantly changed. Union membership
growth, measured as a percentage of the workforce, which grew until
the economy peaked in the early 1950s, thereafter began a decades long
historic decline that has continued to this day. Any rise in union
membership after Taft-Hartley, Landrum-Griffin, and the flood of court
and NLRB decisions based on them would come from the economic growth
that might occur in industries already organized. That net union
growth would not result from union organizing campaigns. But as those
once growth industries themselves later declined, so too would union
membership begin to plummet en masse. Union and worker economic power
in private industry plateaued in the early 1950s, never again to
advance to any significant degree as a direct outcome of union
organizing initiatives in the core sectors of construction,
manufacturing or transport. The drift downward would continue until
1980, after which the drift itself became an accelerating decline due
to corporate and political policies initiated under the Reagan years.

The one exception to the above union membership decline was the drive
in the 1960s and 1970s to organize public sector workers (city,
county, state, federal,) and, shortly thereafter, farm workers. It’s
not surprising that both of these areas of the workforce were left
outside the control of Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin laws’
restrictions on union power. But aside from these two exceptions,
Labor in its strategic base of construction, manufacturing, and
transport otherwise marked time throughout the decade of the 1950s.

The 1960s: The Hiatus

The 1960s represented a hiatus of sorts for corporate forces intent on
rolling back the New Deal and further restricting strikes, organizing,
and union bargaining.

With the overwhelming electoral defeat of right wing Republican Party
candidate, Barry Goldwater, in the 1964 elections those among the
corporate elite advocating a more aggressive offensive were eclipsed
for the moment by more moderate elements, now temporarily ascendant,
who believed there was little to be gained at the time by
unnecessarily aggravating union and worker opposition. There were
windfall profits to be made from the Vietnam War, from the
intensification of the Cold War, and from the Space Race with the
Soviet Union. Moreover, there were rising social protest movements by
minorities, students, and the emerging womens movement. To attempt to
directly dismantle or even restructure the key social programs of the
New Deal, or try to restrict further union rights to bargain and
strike, would only risk adding the protest weight of American Labor to
that of the other peripheral social groups and movements in motion at
the time.

With the more aggressive wing of the corporate elite thus temporarily
marginalized during the 1960s a modest extension, the ‘last hurrah’ of
the New Deal occurred with the passage of the Medicare Act at mid-
decade. The New Deal’s original promise of comprehensive Health Care
for all proclaimed thirty years earlier, then cut short by World War
II and the post-war reaction which followed, was reborn as Medicare—
albeit now only in partial form as health care only for senior
citizens. Medicare would be the last expression of the Roosevelt New
Deal and the result of a unique confluence of historical developments
at that time which would not be repeated since.

By 1970, the decision had essentially been made to extricate the US
from its Vietnam quagmire. The social movements of the previous decade
began to lose momentum. The US had won the Space Race by landing
astronauts on the moon and had compiled a massive advantage in
missiles and warheads over the decade. Thus the conditions underlying
the decade-long hiatus in the corporate offensive against American
workers and their unions began to dissipate.

In this environment circa 1970-71 two new developments of strategic
import absent in the previous decade began to emerge. The first of
these was a new wave of capitalist competition in Europe and Asia that
had not heretofore impacted U.S. corporations in the post World War II
period. By the late sixties the American corporate elite was finding
that it actually had to compete with foreign rivals for the first time
in many years.

Labor’s Last Hurrah: 1969-1971

The second new development at the close of that decade was the re-
emergence of union and worker militancy. It marked a newfound
willingness by unions in the strategic sectors of construction,
transport and manufacturing to strike aggressively for wage and
benefit gains—a development not seen since the mid 1940s.

The union bargaining and strike wave at the end of the decade was led
by the construction trades unions, who achieved first year gains in
wages and benefits of more than 20% as a result of a series of
regional strikes in late 1969-70. Their gains overlapped with the
expiration of contracts by Teamsters and west coast Longshore workers,
who also struck in 1970-71 and achieved similar significant
improvements in wages and benefits.

Following the successful strikes and negotiated gains in Transport,
unions in basic manufacturing, in particular Auto, consequently sought
to match the gains in construction and transport before them. Worker
and union militancy in one sector thus immediately influenced another.
‘Pattern bargaining’ within an industry (eg. GM contract settlement
influencing Ford influencing Chrysler settlements) was one thing, and
bad enough from the perspective of the corporate elite. But to allow a
similar development to occur between industries like Construction,
Transport and Manufacturing was unacceptable! Not since 1946 had
anything similar happened. It was a situation the corporate elite
could not, and would not, tolerate.

While prohibiting sympathy strikes and limiting the right to strike
and the scope bargaining, the Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin
legislation of the 1940s and 1950s did not succeed in prohibiting the
strike per se. Nor did such legislation prevent the still loose but
growing coordination of strikes between unions. Those laws could not
effectively address the successful leapfrogging across industries and
the wage and benefit gains produced in 1969-1971. It was a loophole
that needed closing. With Nixon now in office the corporate elite once
again closed ranks. The hiatus was over.

To help resolve the problem they turned to Nixon to check the nascent
challenge from Labor. Nixon’s response was to impose wage controls on
the construction unions in 1970, followed by a general 90 day freeze
on all wage increases for all workers in August 1971.

Under the wage freeze workers and unions could still strike. They just
couldn’t get anything if they did. That made the strike effectively
meaningless. Led now by the Executive Branch of government in 1970-71,
instead of Congress as in 1947 and 1959, it was a new way to restrict
strikes and determine the outcome of bargaining in favor of
corporations and management. Following the ‘shock event’ of the
initial 90 day freeze, subsequent strict controls on union bargained
wage increases were imposed and remained in place for more than two
years. Negotiated average wage increases in union contracts were
reduced by more than half, and in some industries like Construction
more than three fourths, during 1971-73 as a consequence.

The mysterious death of militant auto union president, Walter Reuther,
in a plane crash in 1970 and the stripping of militant Teamster
president, Jimmy Hoffa, now incarcerated, of his position as head of
the that union in 1971 helped ensure that the brief historic 1969-1971
experience of Labor strike and bargaining militancy would not be
repeated again.

In contrast to the decidedly negative impact of wage controls on wages
and union bargaining, nominal and totally ineffective controls on
prices were also imposed but did nothing to stop the record inflation
of 1972-73 that surged to double digit levels. As a result of the cuts
in negotiated wage increases and the acceleration of inflation, the
prior gains of workers in terms of real wages achieved during the
previous three years, 1969-1971, were wiped out. Workers without
unions fared even worse.

The true underlying plan and intent of the wage controls program under
Nixon was summed up by Arnold Weber, who headed up the Nixon Payboard
during those years, 1972-1974. Years after, in 1979, when it was all
but history, Weber admitted in a Business Week magazine interview that
“The idea (of Nixon’s wage-price controls) was to zap Labor, and we
did!”

Following the wage freeze and controls, the corporate elite and U.S.
government followed up with plans to ensure the experience of
1969-1971 would not be repeated. The first target was the construction
unions who initiated the strike wave in 1969. The plan was called the
‘double breasted operation’. It was an open shop drive much like that
which occurred during the 1920s in that sector. Led by the
Construction Business Roundtable, which would later morph into the
influential Business Roundtable interest and lobby group, the
construction industry during the remainder of the decade of the 1970s
was successfully de-unionized, beginning especially in the residential
housing sector and outside major metropolitan areas but later
extending within metropolitan areas as well. In the process what were
previously region-wide contracts within the construction industry,
which were once the rule, were more and more ‘balkanized’—i.e. broken
up into smaller geographic area contracts that further reduced union
bargaining power. By the end of the 1970s the backs of the
construction trades unions were broken. They would never lead a strike
wave again.

By the time the wage controls were formally discontinued in 1974 the
economy was already headed into a sharp downturn. Controls on wages
were no longer needed in an economy entering the steepest recession to
date since the Great Depression of the thirties. Negotiated gains in
wages, benefits and other conditions by unions were minimal during the
recession of 1973-75, well below what would have been the limits of
formal wage controls had they been continued.

If the wage controls and accelerating inflation of 1971-73 wiped out
the wage and benefit gains achieved during the strike wave of
1969-1971, then the recession of 1973-75 set in motion what would
become a long wage march backward. For more than three decades since
1971 there has not been anything resembling coordinated strike action
across industries between unions and workers in America. Nor is it a
historical coincidence that real wage gains of American workers from
1973 on halted, stagnated, and then began to decline for the next
thirty years as well, despite three decades of record productivity
gains by corporations over the same period! Thus three years of formal
wage controls turned into three decades of informal, but no less
effective, real wage stagnation and decline! A virtual thirty year pay
freeze.

The cross industry bargaining and strike militancy of the 1969-71
period can thus be seen as a ‘last hurrah’ of union power at the level
of the sphere of production—much like the passage of the Medicare Act
a few years earlier marked the high point and ‘last hurrah’ as well of
the New Deal in the sphere of social legislation.

Nixon’s ‘New Economic Program’

Nixon’s wage freeze, wage controls, and subsequent neutralization of
the 1969-71 gains of workers and unions in construction, transport and
manufacturing marked a return by the corporate elite to a more direct
and aggressive offensive not seen since the passage of Taft-Hartley in
1947.

Up to 1970 the Executive Branch of the federal government had left the
task of such offensives pretty much to corporations on a company-to-
company or industry basis to implement directly at the sphere of
production, or to Congress and the Courts at the legislative level.
Now, however, with Nixon the Executive branch of government was fully
engaged. The new phase of the Corporate Offensive that appeared
initially to emerge in the early 1970s under Nixon represented a
renewed consensus that set new precedents in Corporate-Government
cooperation. This deepened direct coordination between corporations
and government, important for our analysis, focused on three policy
areas in particular—not only on restructuring labor-management
relations and thereby on controlling labor costs at the level of
production level, but also on trade relations and tax restructuring as
well.

This broader Corporate Offensive embracing taxes, trade, as well as
wages was called Nixon’s ‘New Economic Program’, or NEP. Introduced in
August 1971, the NEP targeted rolling back of union wage gains
resulting from the strikes and bargaining of 1969-71, as noted above.

However, a second element of the NEP was a broad initiative to cut
corporate taxes. The Nixon NEP tax cuts established new precedents in
tax policy that would be resurrected again by Reagan in 1981 and
expanded upon even further by George W. Bush after 2000. In fact,
1969-71 marks a watershed in US tax policy history. For it is in this
period that the Great American Tax Shift begins to accelerate. More
and more of the overall burden of taxation in the US would henceforth
shift to the working class, while lightening the load for corporations
and wealthy taxpayers. The tax rate on corporations, for example,
peaked in 1969 at 23% and has been declining ever since, until today
it is barely 7%. Within the structure of the overall Federal Tax
burden, a similar shift from the more wealthy to workers has also
occurred over the same time period.

The NEP’s third set of policies involved trade relations and programs.
Trade policy can be understood simply as those measures which lower
costs for US-based corporations in world markets and/or raise costs
for their competitors in the same markets (including the US home
market). Additionally, trade policy means forcing open foreign markets
on favorable terms to the US corporations previously restricted or
denied them. And conversely it can mean inhibiting market entry by
foreign competition in those markets in which US corporations
dominate. Like the renewed direct offensive against union wages and
the beginning of the great tax shift, the aggressive trade policy that
has been a hallmark of the Corporate Offensive for the past twenty-
five years had its initial origins as well in the Nixon NEP.

At the heart of the NEP trade policies was the decoupling of the US
dollar from the gold standard. This move gave US corporations a
strategic weapon with which to browbeat other nations and economies
when trade disputes arose. The world was now indisputably on the
dollar standard. No intermediary ‘currency’ like Gold to enable
foreign central banks or corporate competitors to hide behind. They
could either purchase U.S. dollars or not. The consequence of the
Nixon move was to force other countries to invest more in the US as
well as directly purchase more US government securities to maintain a
trade balance. Buying gold was no longer an option. Buying dollars was
now the only game in town. Foreign currencies now had to peg to the
dollar, which permitted the US to indirectly, albeit partly, to
control the value of those currencies—a tremendous advantage in
maneuvering in disputes over trade and in allowing the US to export
its inflation abroad.

An even more direct ‘trade’ measure announced as part of the NEP was
the imposition of a 10% imports surtax, which resulted in immediate
windfall gains for big manufacturers like GM, US Steel, and others in
textiles, electronics, and other import sensitive industries.

The various trade related measures of the NEP were designed to provide
a clear cost advantage to US companies in international markets, which
they did at the time. Their direct effect was in one sweep to reduce
an over-valued US dollar in world markets and make US corporations
competitive once again in those markets. This was the ultimate trade
objective of the NEP, the same objective all Free Trade policies of
the US corporate elite since the NEP.

The NEP trade measures thus may be viewed as the historical
predecessors to the aggressive trade measures undertaken later by
Reagan, the development and passage of NAFTA under George Bush and
Bill Clinton, the opening of imports from China, and to efforts
currently underway by the US corporate elite and Bush to replicate
NAFTA throughout the Americas by extending it to the Caribbean basin
(CAFTA) and expanding it throughout the southern hemisphere (FTAA),
and by forging in the interim multiple bilateral, country trade deals
designed to outflank and drive still resistant nations into CAFTA-FTAA
trade blocs dominated by the U.S.

Just as there is no ‘free lunch’, there is nothing ever free about
Free Trade. Someone always pays—either the foreign capitalists or the
American worker—when it comes to reducing costs and/or opening
markets. All the academic theory, rationale, justifications and claims
that everyone gains from Free Trade in the long run is either ideology
or obfuscation covering up the fundamental reality that Free Trade, in
the short run, is essentially a zero sum game regardless what the
clever ‘long run’ arguments and defenses may be. And while some
arguments for Free Trade may be true in a purely logical sense in the
long run, the ‘long run’ may in fact be very long indeed. As the 20th
century guru of the economics profession, John Maynard Keynes, has
said: “In the ‘long run’ we’re all dead.”

If the decade of the 1960s can be described as a hiatus in the postwar
Corporate Offensive, the early 1970s and the brief Nixon period can be
understood as a kind of dress rehearsal for what would later emerge
under Reagan and other Presidents after 1980 as a renewed aggressive
phase of that Offensive. The NEP shows clearly the ground pioneered by
Nixon in this direction. Other possibilities he may have planned that
were cut by the events of the last years of his administration also
reveal the historical transitional character of his term in office
with regard to the current Corporate Offensive.

In his 1972 re-election campaign Nixon spoke about a ‘New American
Revolution’ that would take place in his second term. The focus of
this revolution would be domestic policy. While not all elements of
this potential radical redirection of domestic policy were clear at
the time, one proposal that was frequently raised by Nixon in his
first term was his desire to impose mandatory arbitration in all union
contract negotiations.

There is some evident that Nixon’s plans for a New American Revolution
in his second term also intended to address the restructuring the
welfare system, a further overhaul of the corporate tax system, plans
to open up more trade with China, and the introduction of further
business deregulation. All these would later become initiatives under
Reagan, Clinton and George W. Bush. The close relationship between
Nixon and Reagan in particular, both on a policy and personal level,
is often overlooked.

The Interregnum: 1974-1977

But Nixon’s ‘New American Revolution’ follow up to his ‘New Economic
Program’ did not happen, notwithstanding his 1972 re-election. It was
abruptly cut short by his Watergate scandal, impeachment, and his
ultimate resignation in 1974. The Gerald Ford caretaker Presidency
that followed was consequently preoccupied with the fall of Vietnam
and the steep recession of 1974-75. The election of a little known
Democrat, Jimmy Carter, in 1976 further delayed any resumption of
plans for a domestic New American Revolution and any renewed Corporate
Offensive that may have been envisioned along such lines. By mid-
decade of the 1970s the corporate offensive initiated briefly by Nixon
stalled. A kind of Interregnum set in between late 1973-early 1977.

By mid-1977, however, corporate forces again began to plan a renewal
of what had begun earlier in the decade but was cut short by the
intervening political events of 1973-76. Organizations like the
Business Council, Business Roundtable, CFR, Manufacturers Association,
Chamber of Commerce, and others joined with more aggressive ‘Sun Belt’
business forces and right wing oil entrepreneurs, and once again
together set about redefining new ‘rules of the game’ and launching a
new phase of restructuring.

New business political action committees (PACs) and lobbying
operations were set up circa 1977-78 and corporate money was funneled
in amounts previously unseen or even imagined. A new aggressiveness in
financing pro-business electoral candidates, instead of spreading the
money more equally around between Republican and Democratic candidates
as before, was adopted. A new alliance with grass roots religious
organizations that were pioneering direct mailing and other fund
raising techniques was forged, especially in the South, which was now
targeted in particular for Corporate-Republican political initiatives.
A new focus on polling, consulting, media and public relations
expenditures in political campaigns was adopted. Radical right
elements financed and founded dozens of conservative ‘think tanks’,
whose primary task was to define a new ideology of the Right wedding
the old economic arguments with new political and religious moral
ideals, while simultaneously undermining in the public mind any
legitimacy associated with concepts of ‘liberalism’ or the benefits of
business regulation. Cultural themes and moral issues were introduced
in a systematic manner onto the American political landscape,
primarily as vehicles for attacking the civil rights revolution of the
preceding decades and as a means for mobilizing the religious right
for a host of corporate objectives at the grassroots level. A so-
called ‘Committee on the Present Danger’, composed of the most
powerful corporate elements and their surrogate representatives
(including Ronald Reagan), was formed during the decade to directly
attack Carter’s policies.

This new political equation of money, morality and media was tested
out in the 1978 Congress and the final two years of the Carter
Presidency.

1978-79: The Corporate Elite Cross the Rubicon

While more overt elements of a new Corporate Offensive did not begin
to take shape until 1977, less obvious but no less important piecemeal
changes in the ‘rules of the game’ were being implemented throughout
the decade by the courts and Executive branch administrative bodies
like the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). These incremental but
collectively significant developments further tightened the screws on
union organizing, political action, and workers’ rights on the job,
albeit still on a company by company basis. By the late 1970s the
construction unions and workers had already been seriously impacted by
the ‘double breasted operations’ union busting strategy, launched by
the Construction Users Anti-Inflation Roundtable. Now it was the
manufacturing unions turn to experience the negative impact of the
NLRB and the courts over the latter half of the decade on union
organizing and bargaining activities.

In response to the growing legal web restricting organizing and
bargaining, the AFL-CIO, proposed comprehensive Labor Law Reform
legislation to counter the growing restriction on and regulation of
union activities. With a Democratic Party now in power in 1976 both in
Congress and the Executive branch it appeared there would be no better
time to pass general Labor Law Reform. Perhaps the New Deal itself
could be reinvigorated in other ways as well—just as it was in the
1960s with the passage of progressive social legislation in the form
of Medicare.

But Labor Law Reform, as well as other worker and consumer rights
legislation, were resoundingly defeated in 1978 by a massive corporate
lobbying campaign reflecting the newly coordinated, well-funded and
aggressive Corporate attack on any legislation that in any way seemed
akin to the New Deal or protective of working class interests. In
terms of financing, organization, and its intensity, nothing like the
1978 anti-Labor Law Reform lobbying effort had been seen in post war
memory up to that point. Leading the charge was the renamed and
expanded premier corporate lobbying group, the Business Roundtable—the
same business organization which earlier in the decade in 1970 as the
Construction Users Anti-Inflation Roundtable had led the charge to
establish ‘double breasted operations’ and the open shop in the
construction industry.

Attempting to restore some of the original intent of the New Deal
‘National Labor Relations Act’ of 1936, the AFL-CIO made the Labor Law
Reform bill of 1978 its central political and legislative goal during
the Carter administration. When both that goal and the bill went down
to humiliating defeat, it marked the first of what would become a long
string of failed legislative attempts to resurrect progressive
legislation in the decades to follow under Reagan and Bush.

Union efforts to resurrect the New Deal legislative tradition thus
died with the defeat of Labor Law Reform. Henceforth, unions and
workers would be on a constant defensive at the social-legislative
level. 1978 was clearly the watershed with regard to the Corporate
Offensive at that level. Thereafter, union efforts would focus on
trying to prevent the further unraveling and dismantling of the New
Deal tradition and its progressive laws.

If the defeat of Labor Law Reform and the renewed targeting of New
Deal legislation by corporate interests marked a renewal of the
Corporate Offensive ‘from the top down’—then ‘from the bottom up’ new
corporate strategies at the point of production were being rolled out
and tested as well after 1978. The imminent fourth Corporate Offensive
in the 20th century would not only occur at the legislative level, but
at the sphere of production level as well.

Earlier in the 1970s the corporate focus was on eliminating leapfrog
bargaining, strikes and settlements across industries. At the end of
the decade the focus would expand to breaking up within industries
what was called ‘pattern bargaining’. In intra-industry wide
bargaining, for example, a nationwide settlement with a company like
GM or US Steel would be replicated at a Ford or a Bethlehem Steel. The
test case for this occurred in 1979 at Chrysler Corporation involving
the autoworkers and their union, the UAW. Chrysler would become the
test model for a new corporate strategy and formula at the sphere of
production for undermining intra-industry bargaining and contracts in
manufacturing. It was a harbinger of things to come.

In 1979 Chrysler Corporation was facing bankruptcy due to a series of
bad business decisions and a slow response to new competition from
Asia. Chrysler asked for a billion dollar bailout guarantee by the
U.S. government. Responding to demands by Chrysler’s bank creditors,
President Carter supported Chrysler management and its banks’
insistence on major concessions by the UAW and auto workers as part of
the condition for the loans. Carter leaned on the UAW to agree to
concessions in exchange for the government guarantee of the bailout of
the company. From this strategic settlement was born the new model
that would spawn the corporate runaway shop movement of the 1980s,
widespread concession bargaining by unions, and ultimately would
produce what came to be known as the ‘Rustbelting of America’

What the AFL-CIO and UAW did not realize at the time was that the
Chrysler bailout was not an isolated, one time event. It was the pilot
program. It was the test case of how to break the back of union
bargaining power in manufacturing. It would lead to the decades-long
corporate practice of unrestrained outsourcing. Combined with Free
Trade practices and policies at both the government and sphere of
production level, it would lead to subsequent exporting of US
manufacturing jobs on a massive scale.

The Chrysler model was eventually replicated elsewhere throughout
manufacturing during the next two decades. Chrysler was the analog for
the manufacturing sector comparable to what was already underway with
the ‘double breasted’ open shop drive in the construction industry.
Both would decimate union membership. Not coincidentally, UAW union
membership peaked in 1979 at 1.5 million members at the time of the
Chrysler settlement. It has since declined to 624,000 at the end of
2003.

The Chrysler model made effective use of the threats of the plant
shutdown and the runaway shop to paralyze unions and workers with a
deep fear of losing their jobs. Once that fear was sufficiently
established, it then legitimized and helped promote the widespread
penetration into collective bargaining and union contracts of new
‘rules of the game’ at the point of production. Increasingly common in
union contracts thereafter were corporate provisions like two-tier
wage systems, unrestricted outsourcing, expanded management rights
language, lump sum pay bonuses in lieu of scheduled wage increases,
and the steady elimination of Defined Benefit Pension plans and their
replacement with Defined Contribution and Individual Pension plans
based on 401Ks. All the above became staple corporate demands and
objectives in contract negotiations, particularly in Manufacturing
during the Reagan era and beyond. Collective bargaining increasingly
focused on concessions during the new decade of the 1980s, and
concession bargaining has continued to deepen and spread ever since.

While concessionary bargaining did not originate in 1979, it now
became conscious corporate strategy from that point, practiced by more
and more major manufacturing corporations. The Chrysler model thus
marked the beginning of the decline of intra-industry bargaining
within the manufacturing sector. It ushered in concessionary
bargaining on a wide scale. At the point of production the new
corporate strategy was simple: threaten to close down the plant and
use the threat to break up industry-wide contracts, then install two-
tier wage schedules, expand managements rights clauses in contracts to
enable almost unlimited freedom to outsource and/or remove entire
groups of workers from the bargaining unit, give workers lump sum
payments instead of raises in their wage schedule, and substitute
pensions with no guarantees of retirement payments for union pensions
which guaranteed levels of benefits. Chrysler became the model of what
the Corporate Offensive could achieve with the right combination of
business-government pressure, threat, and aggressive action.

Sources critical of Labor tend to blame the leadership of the
manufacturing unions as primarily responsible for allowing the decline
in union bargaining power in manufacturing since Reagan. They cite the
unwillingness of the leadership to directly confront the plant
shutdown/runaway shop developments of the 1980s due to fear of a
Reagan response similar to his destruction of the Air Traffic
Controllers at the time. They note AFL-CIO leadership over-reliance on
Democratic Party help, which was never delivered, instead of taking
action and developing its own industry level counter-strategy. Or they
point to more senior, better paid workers too willing to agree to
lesser pay and benefits (two-tier wage schedules) for younger workers
coming into the industries. But American workers in manufacturing and
elsewhere did fight. In steel, rubber, meatpacking and elsewhere. They
just did so in a very fragmented, industry by industry, and more often
company by company approach. There was no coordinated effort to stop
the snowball effect of the plant closures-runaway shop strategy, or
the legislation and changes in tax and trade that made such corporate
strategy financially attractive.

These criticisms also overlook and greatly underestimate the massive
corporate effort that underlay that offensive launched during the
early Reagan years to undermine the manufacturing unions in America.
They assign little or no role to the Government policies that provided
the incentives, or the role of the courts and NRLB in legitimizing and
institutionalizing the various changes at the sphere of production
level reflecting the “new rules of the game”. More than any other
cause, it was the CEOs and governing boards of corporations that took
the lead in destroying industry-wide bargaining agreements with their
constant threats—frequently followed by action—to shut down plant
after plant and move them first to the South, then to Latin America,
and then elsewhere offshore.

Today outsourcing and offshoring are words the American public has
become increasingly aware of as more and more white collar
professional, business services, software engineering, and other tech
jobs are also rapidly being transferred abroad. But outsourcing and
offshoring have been devastating manufacturing jobs in America since
Reagan and the early 1980s. In mid-1979 there were 21.2 million
manufacturing jobs in America; as of the end of 2004 the number has
declined to only 14.3 million. Just about 7 million high quality, well
paid, good benefits, mostly unionized jobs have been lost in the U.S.
in Manufacturing alone, nearly 3 million of which occurred under
George W. Bush during his first term.

By the end of 1978, barely two years after taking office, the Carter
administration was essentially played out as a force that might
establish an effective defense of the New Deal and protect prior
legislative gains. One of the great historic shortcomings of the
Carter administration was its failure to develop any strategy
whatsoever to revitalize the New Deal—as had been done, for example,
in the decade of the 1960s with the passage of Medicare. The
conditions certainly were there. The Democrats had control of the
Congress and the Presidency. Not since 1932 had the party in 1976 a
better opportunity to achieve something in the wake of Watergate, the
ending of the Vietnam War, and the severe recession of 1974-75—all
events on the Republican Party’s watch. Had they been able to do so,
the history of the past three decades might well have been quite
different. But the extraordinary weak leadership and lack of vision by
Carter and other Democratic Party notables allowed a reopening for,
and rigorous renewal of, a new fourth Corporate Offensive once again
at the close of the decade of the 1970s.

The final political coup de grace was then delivered to the Carter
administration. By late 1979, the decision had been made by the
corporate elite to force Carter out. Global business competition was
intensifying once again at the close of the decade and more aggressive
tax and trade policies were being demanded, none of which Carter was
capable of delivering.

In 1979-80 the Federal Reserve chairman, Paul Volcker, spokesperson
for finance capital and the banking sector in America, adopted a
policy of driving up interest rates well beyond anything justified by
the general economic conditions. Volcker’s efforts had the intended
result. Inflation and interest rates fed off each other in the short
run, driving both to levels to 15% and more by early 1980, an election
year. What quickly followed on the eve of the November elections was
the sharpest drop in the economy, more than 4%, up to that point in
the postwar period. Even a steeper and more rapid recession than that
of 1973-75. Volcker handed Reagan his number one campaign slogan, the
first ‘cue card’ for the 1980 election campaign: “Are you better off
today than before the current (Carter) administration took office!”.
It all but ensured Reagan’s election that year.

Both the new political equation and the elements of a new Fourth
Corporate Offensive were now in place. All that remained was to put
Ronald Reagan in the White House and the corporate elite to begin in
earnest a new era of restructuring, a new offensive against workers
and their unions at the sphere of production level, and a new
legislative assault on the New Deal.

The Fourth Corporate Restructuring & Offensive, 1980-2005

The post-1980 restructuring is characterized on the Business side by
the rapid unraveling of the business regulatory rules of the game
established as part of the New Deal in the 1930s and wholesale
deregulation of entire industries and sectors of the economy. Another
hallmark has been the radical redistribution of taxes and acceleration
of shifting of tax burdens from corporations and the wealthy to the
American working class population. Other major elements of the
restructuring have been the introduction of unprecedented financial
innovations and communications technologies, the transfer offshore of
much of the US manufacturing sector, the restructuring of much of the
work force and jobs markets in the U.S. from traditional, permanent
full time work to forms of part time, temporary, and otherwise
‘contingent’ work, the establishment of new institutions and rules for
world trade, and the closer absorption of the U.S. Media into the U.S.
Industrial-Military-Government complex.

On the Labor side, the restructuring after 1980 has meant the advent
of corporate and government policies to contain real hourly wages, to
rollback various wage and hour guarantees legislated in the 1930s, to
shift rising health care costs to workers, and to transform
traditional group pensions into bank-administered private plans. The
restructuring and offensive has been especially characterized by an
increased regulation of workers and unions in areas of organizing,
political action, and strikes and a dramatic decline in union
membership and bargaining density. An expansion of management rights
by the courts and administrative bodies like the NLRB, the
institutionalization of concession bargaining and the accelerating
export of jobs to lower paid, non-union regions— in particular to
Central America and Asia—are additional key characteristics at the
sphere of production level.

Just as Nixon and the corporate elite in the early 1970s eliminated
leapfrog bargaining and strikes between unions across industries, with
even closer assistance by the Executive and Courts a decade later a
fourth Corporate Offensive would effectively undermine and destroy
intra-industry wide bargaining, break the back of the power of the
manufacturing, construction and transport unions, radically change the
character of collective bargaining strongly in favor of management for
decades to come, and usher in a long period of concession bargaining
by Labor in its once strategic ‘core’ industrial base.

In the 1970s the primary corporate-government means for checking union
bargaining power and workers’ pay and benefit gains were the wage
freeze, wage controls, the threat of compulsory arbitration, and
double breasted open shop operations. At the legislative level
corporate advances took the form of new corporate tax and Free Trade
policies and the checking of labor law reform that might have assisted
union organizing and growth.

After 1980, at the point of production the tactics used were
widespread threats and plant shutdowns, runaway shops, outsourcing,
offshoring, concession bargaining, and use of the courts and executive
to prevent union organizing, strikes, and to otherwise undermine the
growth of union membership. At the legislative level, after Reagan it
was new pro-corporate tax and Free Trade policies ultimately
facilitating shutdowns and offshoring, the rolling back of spending on
social programs, wage and protective legislation, and privatizing the
core of what remained of the Roosevelt New Deal.

In the political-electoral arena, after 1980 the new restructuring and
Offensive would also be accompanied by the transformations of both the
Republican and Democratic parties, albeit in different ways and forms.

The Republican would become a ‘mobilizing’ party with a base of
religious branches able to field an army of grass roots volunteers to
turn out voters, push state-wide initiatives, organize recall and
referenda elections, and engage in other protest events. A mobilizing
party with new ideological elements and a widespread communications
apparatus effective at forming and manipulating public opinion. A
party with a strategy aimed at maximizing institutional power and
imbued with a new aggressive ‘take no hostages’ attitude toward
opponents and adversaries.

In contrast, the Democratic Party would drift under some of the most
ineffective leadership in its history, then turn toward its pro-
corporate wing as represented by its Democratic Leadership Council
(DLC). The DLC would assume party control and undertake a reformation
of the Party on a moderate Republican image, and become increasingly
beholden to corporate interests as it embraced the modern trappings of
money-dependent electoral campaigns (i.e. polling, consultants, media
time, etc.) requiring massive campaign contributions. Under the DLC
the party would transform itself further from the ‘mobilizing’ party
it once was under Roosevelt into a mere electoral organization with a
shrinking base, no clear ideological focus, no media apparatus to
deliver that focus, and increasingly unable to defend itself against
grass roots attacks by its Republican opponent. One of the ironic
consequences of the new Corporate Offensive is not the direct
transformation of the Republican Party by corporate interests, but the
indirect transformation of the Democratic Party by those same
interests as well.

At the legislative level, the new Offensive would successfully gut
social programs, worker protective legislation, and the minimum wage.
Central elements would include a shifting of the total tax burden and
an opening of the floodgates of Free Trade, as well as a
transformation of the private pension system by dismantling tens of
thousands of defined pension benefit plans and eventually a direct
assault via privatization on the twin great achievements of the New
Deal—Social Security and Medicare.

In chapters one through ten that follow the details of the Fourth
Corporate Offensive—the offensive that has continued from Reagan
through George W. Bush—will be discussed. That Offensive will be
examined not only at the sphere of production level but at the
legislative level as well. Tax policies, Free Trade legislation and
practices, wage legislation and rules, health care costs and coverage,
private pensions, and Social Security will be addressed in parallel
with what has happened in terms of wages, unions, bargaining,
benefits, and jobs at the work level. The consequences in the sphere
of organization—whether in the form of the crises in the AFL-CIO or
the Democratic Party—will be discussed in the concluding chapter.

The assault today on American workers’ standard of living, basic
economic interests, and political rights are coming more quickly, from
more directions, and are increasingly virulent and bold. During the
decade of the 1990s it was at times intermittent; at other times
aggressive, especially in terms of trade and job restructuring. Since
2000, however, the assault has been steady, coming from multiple
directions, and gaining in momentum. For those on the receiving end—
American workers and their families—it is becoming increasingly clear
that something basic has changed. Something fundamental is underway.
In this, the first decade of the 21st century the ‘rules of the game’
are once more in flux. The chapters that follow are about those most
recent changes in the ‘rules of the game’—and what the consequence has
been for 105 million American workers and their families since Reagan
took office through the first term of George W. Bush.
