— satire — Congress Attempts to Capitalize on Labor Movement — satire —

Today’s post is an introduction to La Follette humorist, EMT, psuedo-journalist, and student Erik Viel.  Erik will (we hope) be contributing fake news to give us all a chuckle, because – reallywe all need a good laugh sometimes.  This post was originally posted on Erik’s blog.

The Equitable Legislative Labor Act, purposed by Speak of the House, called for Congress to stand up for itself and usher in a new era where legislators enjoy the same benefits and treatment as any other laborer in America. “We, the laborers of law, have been abused and taken for granted by management (the citizens of America) for to long. Enough is enough! It is time for us to take what is rightfully ours!” The motion received a standing ovation from the floor and Congressional unionization efforts quickly followed.

Their demands include:

Bipartisan support brought all representatives to the Capitol to vote on their own labor rights.

Bipartisan support brought everyone to the Senate floor to vote on their own labor rights.

  • Privacy in the work place
  • Safer working conditions
  • Greater job security
  • Overtime pay
  • Shorter legislative sessions
  • Management must be “nicer”
  • An end to the production and ignition of effigies

Negations with management will begin as soon as stewards have been appointed.
