So labor conditions have improved a lot since the 19th century, why can't they keep on improving? People used to work 12hr days, now they work 8hr days. Why do we need socialism is everyone is comfortable working 5hr days, is paid enough to support themselves, and there is welfare for those who can't work.

In uk people are not working 8 hours a day
They're killing themselves for whatever stupid "9-5" job they have where for some reason theybdont clock off at 5 but keep working
British people are gluttons for punishment and the only other set of complete retards are the Americans who without a doubt pull longer days than Brits and with less holiday or medical entitlements

There is a labor bill in US Congress right now known as the Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2019 (PRO Act). If passed, it could potentially be the most sweeping labor reform bill since the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947, and the most pro-union labor reform bill since the National Labor Relations Act of 1935. Here's some changes it could make:
-Anti-union meetings can no longer be required by employers
-Ends "right to work" laws
-Lifts ban on secondary strikes
-Bans proactive lockouts
-Requires transparency from employers - Labor rights must be posted, and anti-union consultants must be disclosed
-Prevents misclassification of workers, i.e. no more independent contractors
-Meaningful penalties for employers for labor law violations
-No permanent replacement of workers on strike
-Prohibition on solidarity action with other workers will be removed

So far this bill has passed the House of Representatives, with 224 (218 Democrats, 5 Republicans, 1 Other) voting yes and 194 (7 Democrats, 186 Republicans, 1 Other) voting no. Passing this bill in the Senate would likely be more difficult though, as it is split 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, with the the Democratic vice-president potentially casting a tie-breaking vote. Nevertheless, the PRO Act seems to be the best shot at sweeping labor reform in the US in decades. Perhaps it can put an end to the decades-long decline unions have been experiencing in the US, and maybe even enable general strikes once again (the US hasn't had a general strike since 1946). Imagine how much more effective social movements could be if they had the general strike at their disposal.

What are your thoughts?

I didn't see it in this thread specifically, but can anyone tell me why trade unionists are always arguing against a general strike? Like I'm not in a union so I can't talk shit but it's really hard for me to see that behavior as anything but full-on class collaborationist cuckholdry. Succdems shouting to just OOORGANIZE feels the same as libs shouting just VOOT at this point

>>103290
Part if is probably the fact that union leaders often have good relationships with politicians and thus don't really want to rock the boat. Part of it is also that unions often lack the financial resources to do a general strike. And I think another part is that general strikes are currently illegal because of Taft-Hartley.

>>103290
In lots of cases it’s because the idea for the general strike didn’t come from organised workers but from Twitter or some shit which isn’t how it works at all. At the same time, unions are cucked in most countries in the west, although the struggle unfortunate has to happen within them. You will find most radical unions that come about today come about as a split from a cucked union when they cuck one too many times

I've heard wildly differing reports on what's going on there, ranging from China committing literal genocide against Uighurs, to China just re-educating terrorists, to nothing out of the ordinary going on there at all, or even that China is treating Uighurs better than Han people. This seems to be a highly polarizing issue, with liberals, conservatives, demsocs, and libsocs saying that China is eating Uighur babies for breakfast, and tankies saying the China is doing nothing wrong and that anything bad they allegedly do is just a CIA/Adrian Zenz fabrication.

Reports: Myanmar security forces kill at least 33 protesters
Myanmar security forces dramatically escalated their crackdown on protests against last month’s coup, killing at least 33 protesters Wednesday in several cities, according to accounts on social media and local news reports compiled by a data analyst.

Iraq military base used by U.S. hit by rockets year after similar attack brought U.S. and Iran close to war
The Iraqi military released a statement later saying the attack did not cause significant losses and that security forces had found the launch pad used for the missiles. An Iraqi official said it was found in the al-Baghdadi area of Anbar, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not permitted to brief media.

Macron admits France tortured and murdered Algerian freedom fighter
French President Emmanuel Macron has admitted that France's army “tortured and murdered” Algerian nationalist Ali Boumendjel, whose death was previously framed as a suicide during the country's war of independence.“Ali Boumendjel did not commit suicide. He was tortured and then murdered,” the president told the former freedom fighter’s grandchildren in a meeting on Tuesday.

Israeli Defense System Shot Down Russian Missile in Karabakh War – Reports
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in response that an overwhelming majority of Iskanders had misfired, comments that led to a tense row with top generals who demanded his resignation. Russian officials also took umbrage with Pashinyan’s comments, leading him to walk back the remarks Monday and attributing them to misinformation.

Tut sie nicht. Selbst wenn, wäre die korrekt linke Position Einwanderern den Zugang zu legalen Jobs und damit in die Gewerkschaften zu erleichtern, anstatt sie in die Schwarzarbeit zu drängen, wo überhaupt kein Arbeitnehmerschutz besteht und sie unter der ständigen Drohung der Abschiebung dem Bourgeois auf Gedeih und Verderb ausgeliefert sind.

So does everyone who is even slightly left of vanilla social democracy. Wissler was part of Marx21, a Trotskyite faction within DieLinke, and a pretty horrible one, as they combine Cliffite thinking with "democratic socialism". But she still left that thing to appease the opportunist leadership of this party, of which she is now part of.

Hello guys, its me once again with another thread for a (potential) happening.
Without further ado, here's the deal (cit): the VASTLY unpopular neoliberal president and Us puppet Jovenel Moise just proclaimed that he still has one year of rule left forcing the Constitution to allow him to do it.
This has already been met with resistance by the people (which btw are struggling with mass protest since late 2019 tbf) and both unions and various other subjects said they are determined to go all the way to remove him if necessary.

That said I say this is still something with the potential to happen cause there's huge uncertainty around what will effectively happen, but i'm creating this thread to follow the events around it together.

Good sources to follow:

Food Prices Are Soaring Faster Than Inflation and Incomes
