Aloha y’all from Hawaii,
I was hopeful to get some feedback on an idea regarding blockchain (cardano) that I believe can revolutionize labor unions. My understanding of blockchain and smart contracts pales in comparison to some of the people in this community hence, my plea for help. I strongly admire the cardano ecosystem for its values and what it stands for. Thanks in advance for your patience as I set the scene, I will try to be to the point.
Declining living standards and stagnate wages have plagued not only the U.S. but the world as a whole in lockstep with the decline of workers participation in unions and lack of transparency. The argument could be made via causation or correlation regardless, privatizing profits and socializing losses is the industry standard. Greed, this giant vampire squid violently jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money has wrapped its tentacles around AFL-CIO specifically the teamsters of which I am one. Smart contracts via cardano blockchain could remedy this.
There are rumors afoot about a nation wide strike for all ups employees! An unsanctioned walk out to illuminate the corruption, collusion, and critical failure of our so called elected officials. As of October 6th UPS package division (250,000 employees) voted NO on a new five year contract, dealing a blow to both UPS management and union officials. Union officials have stated that while there was an overwhelming negative response to the contract and it was rejected they consider the contract to be ratified. It’s been said that 90% of communication is non-verbal. When corrupt buisness leaders strip the people of there ability to communicate with there words, then there is only the language of the physical. when given no options you have no choice!
Cardano blockchain/smart contracts CAN:
- Increase transperancy through smart contracts
A. taking the place of the master agreement, supplements, and ryders
B. No more secret negotiations
C. Eliminating non-disclosed concessions
- Identify and eliminate wasted workers contributions
- Save hundreds of thousands of dollars by eliminating non-essential salaried positons
- Increase voter turnout buy paying members to vote
- Enforce violations by automatically submitting the resignations of Union and Management officials for corrupt practice such as but not limited to: taking bribes, covering up accidents/ injuries, collusion, insider trading, threatening behavior etc
By partnering with Labor, Cardano could become a household name that would undoubtedly rocket its standing into the top 3 in coin market cap. Proving true Sir Charles words that Cardano could be the first trillion dollar crypto currency. I believe in people, I believe in working people, and I believe in Cardano.Time is of the essence and I will be taking my arguments to my local union 996 tomorrow. I also try to be active influencing my other ups brethren throughout the nation via the internet. The only effective answer to organized greed is organized labor. Thank you for your time and please feel free to give me your honest critisicm, ideas, or what I can do to move this forward.
