      I think it is quite probable, but only wanted to point out that at the president level in the US most did not come from very wealthy backgrounds, and also that the capacity to organize workers is not dependent on formal education. And even if organized, in recent years third world workers making 5 or 10 dollars an hour are building things that used to be built by $30 an hour US union workers.

      There are no easy solutions.

      Peace

      Well, in which case the USA should really be high and flying along a
      decent evolutionary social unfolding and its citizens all happy and
      smiling because of it in which case. But do not MISS the bigger picture
      here. It is not about who is IN this or that government it is about WHO
      makes the decisions and pulls the strings of what gets done in the
      political field. Wealthy Families. Who polices the government actions?
      If there is no such skuldugery going on in the USA then how great for
      them. Do you think your presidents pull all the strings of power? No
      way. Do you think it is ALL democratic decisions of the population? It
      does not matter which 'government' gets in. It is ALL being manipulated
      by wealth. Hell, look at your own Banks over there. It is also like
      science isn't it. Science does not make the decisions as to what gets
      done with findings. Why is it that so many folks just do NOT want to see
      this? Still, never mind, plod on.

      school dropout, and I'd guess a number of other union leaders also
      lacked much formal education.
