Did you ever wonder why most of Europe and China and Cuba went either communism or socialist and America did not?
Freedom gave people the idea that they should share in the fruits of their labor. America watched as the high and mighty fell--and decided to give the people a small portion in the hopes of keeping a part of their world. The sharing yet allowing people to dream of one day becoming one of the rich is what kept America from going the entire socialist / communist route. If you take away that small portion, it will be a matter of time before the employer will go back to the way it was--and the worker WILL revolt.
