Fascism is recognized to have first been officially developed by Benito Mussolini, who came to power in Italy in 1922. To sum up fascism in one word would be to say "anti-liberalism".

...............Socialism and Democracy. Political doctrines pass; peoples remain. It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the "Right," a Fascist century."

New Hampshire SEIU 10% raise over two years


They don't have a contract yet, but they do have a TA.

New Hampshire SEIU
Tentative Agreement Reached 10% raise over two years.

A lot of this is great stuff, but read the whole story. See how much they are paying for health care, check the size of the deductibles and look at the increases that are coming. Would you like a contract like this? What do you think.They did well but just getting some things, we have had for years. Click on the comments at the bottom of the post and let everyone know what YOU think. Is this a good contract? Is our healthcare better? How important is the fact that we saved our healthcare?

The tentative agreement would increase pay by more than 10% over the two-year contract.
