One hundred UAW members effectively shut down a Detroit bank for an hour and half; Eighty striking Pocono Medical Center workers and SEIU members fill a bank lobby in Stroudsburg, PA to demand a meeting with its CEO, intimidating employees in the process; Over 200 arrested in violent labor protests in London; Grocery stores stormed; Demonstrators angrily protesting at homes of targeted business management. Could these seemingly separate events actually be part of a massive agenda?

On the surface, the protests in Wisconsin and other states may seem to be simply about humble workers trying to fight to eek out a meager living. For many of the workers, that is what they believe it is all about. To be certain, there are many examples where teacher or public employee unions have protected a member against incompetent, vindictive administrators and bosses. Historically, there are many positive things unions have done.
