I’m a realist with a vested interest in actually attainable goals by building a rainbow coalition that best serves the most amount of people within the State with the smallest amount of impact on their daily lives. Questions of specific policy vary from corporation to corporation, workplace to workplace, depending on the specific needs faced by the actual material conditions of the factory worker. Things like revisited safety measures and compensation for injuries, workplace automation without workforce reductions, training to prepare workers for new innovation, accessible on premises daycare facilities, standardized space regulations and occupancy limits for workers living in communal berthing.
Some are fortunate to have these already, others do not. In the megacorporate system, there isn’t any reasonable avenue for a citizen to choose their employment based on what benefits are offered and where; for the vast majority its just simply what parent corporation were you born into and who was hiring at the time. For this reason, the CEP needs to make some clear steps towards speaking with the actual workers of the State to meet their needs and finally set some standardized policies across the megacorporations.
Now on to the more misty eyed ■■■■, the stuff I dream to see in my lifetime but I refuse to let get in the way of tangible progress.
I believe that the first step towards building a more unified and cohesive state that can truly heal in the wake of the Invasion is the establishment of real, workers led unions with avenues for collective bargaining with management. I believe in preserving the union worker’s right not only to fair and equitable compensation for their labor based on the labor theory of value, but the necessity to share that aid with those who are unable or unwilling to work themselves due to extraneous factors. (Disability, medical leave, academic study, etc.) All still, I hold no sympathies toward liberal electorism as it simply doesn’t make a difference to people’s material conditions. The only “freedom” I’m interested in is freedom from wage theft, exploitation of labor, and the threat of abject poverty should anyone choose to pursue opportunities outside their current position; opportunities that might otherwise benefit not only themselves but the State at large through new innovation rather than forcing our people to stay in an exploitative working environment under penalty of becoming a non-person. Its my sincere belief that these improvements will either improve productivity such that any offset will pay for itself by creating more opportunity for the creation of capital, and that many of these “free” services some will argue the Caldari people aren’t entitled to are already paid for many times over in the economic output of the worker that is otherwise taken from them when they are paid a fraction of what their own labor is worth.
