Perfect example of how Trump would treat Americans if he were president

This is exactly how 98% of Americans would be treated by Trump if he were president–even Republicans. Why should he be any different as president? Republicans are living in a fool’s paradise if they think he would listen to their concerns.
Maricella Olvera encounters Donald Trump on occasion, but she’s careful not to say a word. The 47-year-old cleans the penthouse at the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, where Trump, his family, and celebrity guests often come to stay. She cleans around them in silence. Trump is always uninterested.
“The policy is: you don’t talk to the boss," she said at her small one-bedroom home, on the joyously named Sing Song Way in the city’s northern suburbs.
While Olvera may be silent at work, she and a collective of cleaners, bar workers, and kitchen staff at the Trump hotel have been a thorn in the billionaire’s side for the past year, using what voice they have to remind the public of the hypocrisy that surrounds his audacious run for the presidency and his record as an employer.
Although Trump has touted himself as “the greatest jobs president that God has ever created", these workers point to the fact they are paid on average $3 less than the thousands of unionised hotel workers in Las Vegas who work identical jobs and enjoy a host of other benefits, including pensions and free health insurance, not available to Trump employees.
Earlier this month, following a protracted dispute with Trump and his co-owner, casino billionaire Phil Ruffin, the National Labor Relations Board officially certified a union for over 500 staff at the hotel. Workers argue they have been subjected to surveillance, intimidation, and unlawful dismissal as they have sought to organize.
Hotel management has so far consistently rejected calls to sit down and negotiate a new contract and appear likely to appeal the certification. It is estimated by the Culinary Workers Union that 98% of casinos and hotels on the strip and in downtown Las Vegas are unionised, making the company’s stance a near total outlier. Meanwhile, the billionaire’s campaign filings reveal he values his stake in the hotel at $50m, with a generated income of more than $27m.

It would be an understatement to say you don’t like trump. But the fact that Trump does have employees at a time in America where no one wants employees puts Trump miles ahead of Clinton. And unions are nothing more than a band of lawyers that spend half the time fighting the employers and the other half fighting the employees. There is both good and bad with unions, but unions are mostly seen as good only when the employers are bad. Being unionized is like a time bomb for most companies. The ones that can survive the big powerful unions end up moving to other states or out of the country. Those that can, sell out to bigger companies or shut down. You are upset with Trump, but you should be upset with Obama. Obama just passed the biggest damage to unionized workers ever. It is now law that if the union retirement is underfunded that a judge can reduce the retirement amount of the workers. Even though the workers have been paying into the U.S. Government Agency called the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation that was setup to stop this exact thing from happening. Do you have any idea how many and how much, all the union are underfunded? So, now the government has taken guarantied retirement away from millions, and you are worried about Trump. I would be asking myself where were the unions in fighting for the workers to stop this type of action from becoming law. I think the unions sold out the workers to keep the government off their backs for not fully funding the retirement. And a lot of these unions are government workers unions, the most powerful unions.

Ya this is nothing special. CEO’s in general dislike unions and Repub governors everywhere are engaged in union busting. I still think the plan is to get Dems to flock to Repubs like Obama and Clinton - sheep Dems - Republicans who wear Dem clothing, then have the Sheep Dem do all the corporatocracy’s dirty work, like Obamacare.

:roll: You out-do yourself sir. Mind you, I can't stand Clinton, Mr Reagan Lite with a twist of left. Still, the stupid simplistic nonsensical nature of what you said up there, blew me away. People actually think in those terms and take themselves serious - as they deride everyone who's spent time learning and become expert. No wonder our nation is in such shit shape. Oh and once again, no sources cited. An indicator of deviousness. Ironically, periodically center Right-Winger type slam me for constantly adding links when I'm shooting off my mouth. Guess, that's the difference between us, I am interested in people learning about the real issues and specifically what disagreements and misunderstanding is all about. "Constructive Debate" vs. Faternity House/political dog-chasing-tail debate and all that.

I don't know what that sentence means. Can you make it clearer.. And unions are nothing more than a band of lawyers that spend half the time fighting the employers and the other half fighting the employees. Do you know why? Because corporations and their Republican owners ruined them. They didn't want employees to have the ability to demand better pay and benefits and better working conditions. They fought them tooth and nail. There is both good and bad with unions, but unions are mostly seen as good only when the employers are bad. That's what corporations and Republicans want you to think and you fell for it. Being unionized is like a time bomb for most companies. The ones that can survive the big powerful unions end up moving to other states or out of the country. What big powerful unions. There are none left! Those that can, sell out to bigger companies or shut down. That's what the right wants you to think. You've been duped. You are upset with Trump, but you should be upset with Obama. Obama just passed the biggest damage to unionized workers ever. It is now law that if the union retirement is underfunded that a judge can reduce the retirement amount of the workers. Even though the workers have been paying into the U.S. Government Agency called the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation that was setup to stop this exact thing from happening. I am upset with Obama on several,issues. But it is child's play compared to what Trump would do to ruin the country if he were president Do you have any idea how many and how much, all the union are underfunded? So, now the government has taken guarantied retirement away from millions, and you are worried about Trump. I would be asking myself where were the unions in fighting for the workers to stop this type of action from becoming law. I think the unions sold out the workers to keep the government off their backs for not fully funding the retirement. And a lot of these unions are government workers unions, the most powerful unions. Name some powerful unions and who belongs to them. What is the percentage of unionized workers in the US? The right wing has managed to decimate the unions. And what happens when the companies are "underfunded"? They run to Mama for bailouts that taxpayers pay for, many of whom are underpaid becuse they are no longer unionized. Who caused the banking failures and the following recession? Unions? Read some history not written by right wing dupes. .

Do you have any idea how many and how much, all the union are underfunded?
Mike has a habit of asking nonsensical questions as if he is making a point, and this is a perfect example. Has nothing to do with Trump or this election, has no facts to back up whatever point Mike may be trying to make, and leaved a nebulous negative feeling about unions without saying anything. Well done, Mike.

Yes, and I don’t even have to guess what your motives are. Only a person living in their own world and not having read a newspaper or listened to the news in the last five years wouldn’t know about the under-funding problems the unions are having across the nation.

There seems to be this attitude about big business and employers that they are the cause of most of the problems. It was not always this way. I remember back in the 60’s big business and employers were thought of very highly by the public. Today, it is very hard to be a successful employer. There are certain realizations of finances and liabilities that comes with being a successful employer that most people never understand. And this knowledge has to learn by experience. It takes some people three or four times of being in business before they understand. Employers also understand that the most valuable item of any company is the employees. To me, that puts Trump ahead of Hilary on this subject.

"Constructive Debate" vs. Faternity House/political dog-chasing-tail debate and all that. At a dairy convention in Idaho a few years back I was doing some research into labor leasing for the industrial dairies. I had a questionnaire for the dairy owners and managers. One question was, what part of stress and headaches of operating a dairy was the labor. Not one was below 90%. Before that I worked with over 900 construction companies and was the employer of recorder by labor leasing to government and other entities when it came to maters of the employees. And the construction industry had a lot of the same problems. Sorry that I blew you away, but that’s life. No one in their right mind wants to work with stress and headaches. And that what you get when you have employees today.

Only a person living in their own world and not having read a newspaper or listened to the news in the last five years wouldn’t know about the under-funding problems the unions are having across the nation. How about the underfunding banks and stock brokers were having before they were bailed out by the US taxpayer? I suppose that's the fault of unions, too.

I have been helping out the union that Maricella Olvera said was certified by the state for the Trump business. It is just a branch of that union that is forming to service the marijuana industry. A few months back they ask me to be their spokesperson for the area here in Southern California. I turned down the offer because I have too many projects going at this time. In the article you posted you can see Maricella wearing a red shirt. I twice filled the court room last year with those red shirts. I got 19 cases against union workers reduced or dismissed. The prosecutor was jailing employees for processing marijuana. California does not prosecutor employees for working. It is the employers that are to prosecuted. The union helps separate who are the employees.
