Anna Morkeski sounds good but in terms of right to work, it has to be factored in that while no union dues are charged to its beneficiaries, the Maine gov is currently writing statutes that mandate employee pay and benefits for its targeted sector (companies providing above average income) as a bargaining chip in exchange for giving owners of the means of production up to 100% tax exemption on corporate and personal income tax and a tax credit of up to 80 % payroll taxes - the largest payroll taxes in the state which the Maine Gov passes the lion's share on to the general tax payer via the Pine Tree Zone tax incentives program. This means that while beneficiaries of the state's negotiations do not pay union dues in effect the general Maine tax payer covers the union dues regardless of whether or not the taxpayer is the beneficiary, while the corporation of Maine ends up with an high end employee income tax revenue which can be taxed at a higher rate than the middle class and lower jobs that the Maine economic development policies exclude from their targeted sector benefits.

So if one really advocates for making Maine a right to work state, one should also advocate for a REPEAL of the PINE TREE ZONE TAX BENEFITS which benefit the few (maybe) at the expense of the many. I say it maybe benefits the few because of Maine State Inc's over use of tax credits and tax exemptions to gift to owners of means of production and capitalists. This will continue to drive up taxes on the general public and eventually Maine will be like Denmark where wages are high but taxes are higher- on average taxes in Denmark are at 80% according to Mikkel Clair Nissen

So all we can really say for certain is that Pine Tree Zone tax incentives benefit the expanding power and might of the corporation of Maine and its hegemonic power over the free enterprise system in this state.

Response from Anna Morkeski:


Anna Morkeski I am all for ending corporatism in Maine. Sorry the article didn't cover everything. I didn't write it. Please feel free to talk to me directly about issues you would like to see addressed. Also saw you liked 'The Committee to Rebuild Maine's Middle Class". Do check out where they get their money and how they spent it.http://www.maine.gov/.../dis.../2014/ie_general-2014_NEW.htm

pascal-meier-unsplash Also published on Medium;s Data Driven Investor I woke up in the morning contemplating how the world had just suddenly changed over night, or at least the human perception of the world. My thoughts then jumped to a time I have only read about, when a similar event happened in the realm of science. The story goes that around the turn of the twentieth century, scientists believed that mankind had figured everything out that there was to know about how the workings of the physical world except what was considered to be a minor detail. Existing theory could not account for why the observed spectrum of black body radiation, diverged at higher frequencies from what was predicted. Plank solved the mystery by making a different assumption about the nature of the frequency of black body radiation. Others were assuming that radiation was continuous but Plank assumed that atoms could only vibrate at certain frequencies that were whole number multiples of a base fre

I am a Baby Boomer, and this is the story of how my generation let the great wealth divide happen.

Featuring The Maine Capital Corporation of 1976  Established in the wake of a newly centralized United States Economy,  Image for post Image by Mackenzie Andersen using public domain clip art Legal status disclosure: This is an opinion of a layperson. independent researcher ,and private citizen of Maine. My generation, aka the baby boomers, did not create the great wealth divide that advantages the few at the expense of the many, but we allowed it to take place. In order to understand a great effect, one needs to understand the molecular response occurring at the scale of individual human interaction.This story posits that the centralization of the American economy was a large contributing factor in the creation and escalation of the wealth gap and examines how it manifested on location to the benefit of the private capital interests of the few. The story takes a step back in time to the when the first act of legislation passed after the centrally managed economy of Maine was declared
