Large companies will do almost anything to avoid their workers unionizing.

Worker unions means higher wages, more benefits and, in short, a much better life for the people working for them.


However, it also means less profits for the company, so large corporations like Walmart and Amazon have been shameless in their union-busting, going to extreme lengths to shut down any chance of unionization before it begins.

Many Delta airline workers are currently in the process of joining the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM).

Fearing their employees' demands for better conditions may harm their bottom line, Delta has begun an aggressive anti-union campaign that has gone to absolutely shameless lengths to dissuade workers from unionizing.

Common Dreams senior editor Eoin Higgins took a picture of one of Delta's posters and shared it online.

In an incredibly patronizing (and somewhat insulting) tone, the poster seems to suggest to workers that their union dues would be better spent on a new gaming system.

Twitter was irate at the poster, many promising to boycott Delta in the future.


It should go without saying that a union is better for workers than a gaming system.



Delta even went so far as to make their own anti-union website.


The website is...really, really something.


Hopefully no Delta workers will be convinced by this lazy, illogical attempt to sway them.


Of course, Twitter couldn't help but make a few gaming jokes about the situation.



The entire purpose of a union is to protect its workers.

The same can't be said for the company that employs them.




The IAM responded to the ads with a statement of their own:

It's unclear how many Delta workers will sign up with the IAM, but very few are going to be convinced not to by Delta's union-busting propaganda.

Game of Thrones fans are a passionate lot.

For eight seasons they wrung their hands and argued back and forth about who would sit on the iron throne and rule the seven kingdoms in the end.

But it turns out, the show may have told us right from the beginning.

Yes, if you've been on the internet, you know that everybody, even Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the 8th and final season of Game Of Thrones.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

Alright ladies and gentlemen, time for a pop quiz.

The first question is, what do the lyrics...

"And I am telling you..."
"Once there was a way to get back homeward"
"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
