THE BEST FRIEND THE WORKING MAN EVER HAD.
SERIOUSLY. Big Business feared to tread upon the rights of the worker when the Mafia was in full power.
C'mon, we all KNOW that they controlled the UNIONS.
Well, so did Big Business and the
Corporate Thieves that control our
Hear we go:
I propose that the reason that the Mafia was virtually destroyed by
the FBI was really at the behest
of Big Business.
What the Hell did this country care
about a bunch of ITALIANS killing each other for profit?
As long as they stayed in their neighborhoods leaning on the small time MOM and POPS stores, no one

ALCOHOL. SMUGGLING: Really, who

Cosa Nostra and Big Business.
When the Mafia flexed their Union Power and fought too hard for the working man-that was it...
Great Salaries, Strong Unions, Great
Insurance coverage: Thank the Mafia.
Well, the unions are weaker than bath water since La Cosa Nostra was
quashed. All the gains that our parents and grandparents fought and
