Slaves To Ipod

What was that the right wing was saying about unions being outdated? As long as we have wage-slavery the wage-slaves will need to organize! Yeah codes of conduct are as useless as the paper they are written on. The only real code of conduct is when workers organize. Apple is the new Nike.
