John Ruskin

Men don't and can't live by exchanging articles, but by producing them. They don't live by trade, but by work. Give up that foolish and vain title of Trades Unions; and take that of laborers Unions.

John Howard In Retirement

John Howard in retirement he lives the good life
With Janette one can say his devoted wife
His term as Australian Prime Minister by the voters was brought to an end
But with fame and money he won't go short of a friend
Howard's Government policies did not unite but divide
Their Work Choices did get the Trade Unions offside
But the Government defeated and their Work Choices with them gone
A win for the Workers and the Unions live on
Kevin Ruud who dethroned him may well celebrate
But on him there too is an unseen use by date
By the Australian voters as Prime Minister empowered
But will his fate be that any different to Howard?
The one who divided and could not unite
He failed when he took on the Trade Union's might.

I would not go so far as to say that the French trade unions attached greater importance to the struggle for peace than the others did; but they certainly seemed to take it more to heart.

Lech Walesa

This conviction brought me, in the summer of 1978, to the Free Trade Unions - formed by a group of courageous and dedicated people who came out in the defense of the workers' rights and dignity.

A Child Laborer(2)

122 kinds of goods,
that are produced,
include diamond, jade, teak wood,
soccer ball, glass bangle, leather,
firework, carpet, foot wear,
rubber, gold, silver,
sweet strawberry,
and pornography.

International Labor Organization estimates
that more than 12 million working in forced labor or bondage,
that more than 200 millons of children
working in evironment with danger,
around the world in 58 countries,
where there are widespread poverty.

The big boss exploits the child labor,
Making big money is what he cares.
The products are cheap.
Low labor cost gives him profit...a big heap.
