- According to Newsweek, 38 million Americans live below
the poverty line.
- The federal government defines that line as an annual
income of $20,000 or less for a family of four. For the first time in
our history, more of America's poor live in the suburbs than cities.
- In Bedford Heights, Cleveland, Ohio five years ago, a
Hunger Network food pantry served 50 families per month. Today, 700 families
depend on the pantry for food. Why? Manufacturing jobs shrink with outsourcing,
offshoring, insourcing and millions of ILLegal migrants taking jobs from
- History -- A Great Teacher
- Remember feudalism in ancient Europe? Remember how kings
sat in their castles while serfs tilled the fields, brought food in payment
for taxes, died in wars and lived in miserable poverty? Remember the Broadway
production of Camelot with Guinevere listening while the king sang,
"What are the common people thinking tonight?"
- Remember how 20th century Robber Barons like Rockefeller,
Swift, Amour, Carnegie, Gates, Gould, Morgan, Vanderbilt, Kennedy and others
manipulated workers while amassing obscene fortunes?
- We enjoyed a vibrant Middle-Class by the mid sixties.
- In order to thwart corporate strangle-hold on American
workers, unions formed to give the common laborer collective power. The
AFL-CIO, with such men as Walter Reuther, George Meany and others forced
corporations to pay a living wage with decent family benefits.
- However, unseen trouble lurked on the horizon.
- In 1965, Teddy Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson slipped
an immigration bill through Congress that jumped immigration from 175,000
immigrants annually to 1.1 million each year -- a sudden, six-fold increase.
- Onslaught of undocumented foreign-nationals
- So-called legal immigrants busted unions and lowered
wages. By 1986 millions of "ILLegal" poverty stricken
peasants from Third World countries crossed over our borders.
- They took jobs at half or one-third the wages paid by
corporations. For example, meat packers in the 1980s earned $18.00 an
hour with benefits. Construction workers earned $22.00 an hour. American
cab drivers earned a decent living. Catastrophic changes descended
on working America.
- The slave-labor workers decimated our lower- middle-class
- All of a sudden, companies found a mother lode of workers
in ILLegal migrants. They grabbed jobs from American workers at $6.00
an hour, lived 20 to a trailer or apartment and found they could tap into
free medical care and schooling for themselves and their children. They drove
cars without licenses or insurance. They worked off the books without
paying income taxes.
- Voila! The new Robber Barons of the 21st century found
their new slave class. These new slaves weren't African Negroes shackled
in chains while being torn from their country. No! These new workers
arrived mostly from Mexico where the average worker earned(s) $3.85 per
day. Why? Mexico's Robber Barons perfected their strangle-hold
on slave class dominance.
- What is the result?
- Today, corporations crush America's Middle-Class into
our newest poverty class. Our working poor stand in welfare lines. You
can't find an American cab driver any more. You've got Muslims who won't
take you if you carry something they don't like while African immigrants
can't understand English. Swift, Hormel, Tyson, Wal-Mart and hundreds
of other large employers engage in illegal hiring practices. They're not
alone! McDonald's, Burger King, Chipotle's, Pizza Hut and many other fast
food chains employ ILLegal aliens. Construction firms, house painting,
drywall contractors and roofers hire ILLegal aliens at a fraction of a
- Bill Gates leads the new 21st century Robber Barons.
(Read the book: Robber Barons by Mathew Josephson) Gates' immense $50 billion
fortune allows him to dictate to Congress on how many H1-B and H2-B visas
can be offered. Thus far, more than 1,000,000 American high tech workers
lost their jobs to insourced foreign workers. Over 3,000,000 U.S. manufacturing
jobs vanished into India, Mexico and China.
- Who Makes the Goods America Uses ?
- Maytag and American Flyer outsourced and offshored their
plants to China. Wal-Mart buys 90 percent of its products from China and
other countries where they can buy products normally produced at wages
of 22 cents-per-hour.
- Last year, Ford and General Motors announced 60,000 more
jobs pink-slipped. Michigan workers suffered lost manufacturing jobs at
1,000 per week in the past 18 months. Middle-class families suffer job
crucifixion while their children languish.
- By employing ILLegal migrants, now at more than 20 million
in the U.S., 21st century Robber Baron employers cut their expenses in
half while they increase their profits for their owners and top CEOs.
- Results? Howard and Jane Pettry of Middleburg Heights,
Ohio said, "We've worked all our lives and paid taxes. Now we're
living off credit cards. It's terrible."
- How terrible? The average American credit card holder
owes $9,149.00 on his or her card. Most run interest rates at 18.5 percent.
Guess who benefits from all that interest?
- In the meantime, Congress watches, waits and waffles
while doing nothing to stop legal and ILLegal migrants from crossing America's
borders at rates of millions and millions annually.
- Who is in Charge Here?
- Who do you think controls Congress? Not the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce and big business in general, right?
- Even more stunning, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq cost
U.S. taxpayers $689 billion during the last five years.
- President Bush rebuilds Iraq, spending hundreds of billions
of dollars, while he watches skyrocketing poverty levels degrade our Middle
Class. On top of that, every senator now running for the presidency voted
for SB 2611 that added even more work visas as well as doubling legal immigration
to 2.0 million annually.
- Thanks to Providence, that legislation stalled. Most
terrifying, the same scoundrels will advance a similar bill aimed right
at the guts of the U.S. middle-class.
- Throughout this national calamity, American citizens
watch as their neighbors lose jobs or see their wages diminished. However,
if it doesn't affect them directly, they won't speak a word.
- If you think the 21st century Robber Barons plan to stop
this massive wage degradation, you better hang on to your britches. Like
the wealthy Robber Barons of Mexico, our corporations won't stop the next
added 20 million ILLegal migrants -- nor will they stop the insourcing,
offshoring and outsourcing of jobs.
- Can you imagine what Cheney and Bush sing tonight as
they gather around their opulent furnishings, "What are our common
citizens thinking tonight...ta, ta, we don't care!"
- The Death of the U.S. Middle-Class
- In the end, America's Middle Class roared into being
from the 30s to the 90s, but fades from existence in the early part of
the 21st century. Concurrently, the less educated their children from
dumbed-down school systems, the less able they will be to rise up against
- Ironically, our own president and Congress commit this
national fraud against our citizens. Worse, Americans don't speak out
-- 50 to 60 percent of us don't vote, and the rest can't be bothered as
long as it doesn't affect them.
- Denial grows as a key piece of the addictions afflicting
our national leaders while dragging this country into cultural,
linguistic and financial quicksand.
- As the next added 100 million people manifest their numbers
in American society, with 70 million immigrants (legal and ILLegals), we
might view Mexico to see our future. By making $3.85 per day per average
wage earner, our society degrades to a high class and a low class
with a giant gap between.
- R I P -- Here Lies America's Middle Class Died
a contrived death at the hands of the 21st century Robber Barons -- and
its own disinterest. They bowed their heads like sheep
in the pasture of their demise.

It means you must jump in, roll up you sleeves and take personal and collective
