I've noticed recently that an Aussie (branch?) of media, Who I thought were better than that, have started running a bunch of articles suggesting he has dementia or saying he's not fit to be president, and so forth. I haven't seen them post anything unbiased for ages. Quite disappointing.
With a strike looming, President Biden called on Congress to pass legislation imposing a contract deal that four rail unions had rejected, citing its lack of paid sick days.
Forced to take a shitty deal that they already voted down. Why wasn't a better deal passed? (The House did, but it didn't pass the Senate) Why didn't the railroad companies get ordered back to the bargaining table? Now the Republicans will latch onto this and say that the Democrats are anti workers.
This was done in haste, with almost no real consideration for the consequences.
Ah, "because commercialism season." I genuinely hate the naked materialism of this time of year, and even more so now that I see it's used as a justification to screw an entire chunk of rail workers over.
