I don’t know what’s going on here, but as a general rule, it’s reasonable to be skeptical of a secret union you’ve never heard of that shares an address with your employer.

It’s every employee’s legal right to form a union. The company doesn’t get a vote in that decision. But they get a voice, and employers know it’s cheaper to hire consultants to try to persuade employees to vote no rather than to give them raises. And that period is a real grind.

I'm just going to shout this. PUERTO RICANS DON'T HAVE WATER AND SO THEY'RE TRYING TO DRINK WATER FROM ***SUPERFUND SITES***

Wow. Big scoop by : The Trump administration created a "secret database of activists, journalists, and social media influencers tied to the migrant caravan and in some cases, placed alerts on their passports."

One of the Women's Marchers' final acts: leaving their protest signs in front of the White House.
