Merle Haggard’s “Working Man Blues”

During the recession many of us had to take hits to our paychecks to help businesses and state agencies stay afloat.  This Merle Haggard song goes out to all the organizers trying to force a live-able wage from major corporations. CNN reports: “McDonald’s, the world’s largest hamburger joint, hasn’t fared so poorly. Last year, sales increased 12 percent. The largest U.S. retailer Wal-Mart hasn’t done so badly either. Even at the height of the recession in 2009, the company’s sales rose 7 percent.” Dear Walmarts – if you won’t share the pain then at least share the wealth!
