West Virginia Ends Union Rule – Chooses Right to Work

The West Virginia Senate passed a measure Thursday to outlaw mandatory union dues and fees as a condition of employment. The Senate approved the bill with a 17 to 16 vote before sending it to the House of Delegates. The measure was introduced Jan. 13 on the first day of the 60-day legislative session. The policy has been a Republican priority since the party secured the legislature in November 2014. It is more commonly known as right-to-work. “I believe this is a critical first step toward Read more […]

Unions Toeing the Line on Liberal Gun Control Efforts

One of the most powerful leaders in the union world heaped praise Tuesday upon President Barack Obama for his unilateral action on gun-control despite the fact the policy is completely unrelated to workplace issues. The primary purpose of labor unions is to help negotiate with employers on behalf of their workers. They have significant political influence to advocate for policies that are supposed to help American workers. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), however, is instead using Read more […]

Uber Wins Big Against the City of New York

Uber and other ride-sharing platforms have been handed a major victory after Queens Supreme Court Justice Allan Weiss threw out a legal challenge to ride-sharing companies’ freedom to be hailed from apps. Four credit unions with significant financial interests in yellow cab medallions argued that app-based services such as Uber are more akin to street private-hire vehicles, that can only pick up pre-booked passengers, but the app enables them to act like a street hail service. However, Weiss Read more […]

Want to be Happy at Work? Don’t Join a Union

According to a Gallup poll released Friday, nonunion workers are far more likely then unionized workers to be content with safety and recognition at work. “Employed Americans who report being members of labor unions are significantly less likely than nonunion employees to say they are ‘completely satisfied’ with six of 13 job aspects,” Gallup detailed. “These include workplace safety, recognition for accomplishments, flexibility of hours and job security.” The most significant gap Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Spends Labor Day Kissing Up to Unions

Hillary Clinton may be having some problems with our criminal justice system of late, but that doesn’t mean that she’s forgotten how to pander. Liberals love Labor Day because it offers them the opportunity to get back to their socialist roots without seeming ‘overly socialist’ — and Hillary is not one to ever miss a chance at being socialist. This year, in the midst of a run at the Democrat presidential nomination, the Clinton team decided to use Labor Day as a means of pandering to her Read more […]

Schools are for Children, Not Teachers and Administrators

What’s the one industry in which the customer is less valued than the employee? Education. As I’ve observed the debate about how to fix public schools, the one idea that is most vilified is the idea of vouchers, of being allowed to use your own tax money to send your child to a school outside the district in which you live. The idea of vouchers, and many similar programs with varying names, is that a child shouldn’t be relegated to a poorly performing school simply because of where they live. Read more […]

Surprise! Unions Defending Planned Parenthood

With recent calls to defund Planned Parenthood after an official was caught on camera discussing how to harvest fetal organs, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka stepped up Friday to defend the group. “Calls to defund it based on doctored undercover recordings are politically motivated and wrong. We support its core mission of offering safe healthcare services to women in need,” Trumka wrote in a statement. On July 14 a video surfaced showing a Planned Parenthood employee casually discussing, Read more […]

California Unions Want Exemption from Wage Hike they Forced!

During a Los Angeles City Council hearing Friday, organized labor continued its push to have unionized companies exempt from a measure to raise the minimum wage to $15 by 2020. Last week the city council voted 14 to 1 on a tentative agreement to raise the city’s minimum wage. Though some specific provisions have yet to be finalized, a draft of the measure prompted some in the labor movement to ask for an exemption for unionized companies and workers. Rusty Hicks, executive secretary-treasurer Read more […]

President Obama and Union Allies Could Not Care Less about our Immigration Laws

President Barack Obama and his allies in the labor unions continue to show their complete disregard for our laws by pretending they don’t even exist. This week Democrat-allied labor unions began openly breaking our laws in an effort to grow their numbers (in an attempt to stem their own bleeding) by adding illegal immigrants to their union rolls. Big Labor is dying and the leadership of the liberal union groups realizes that the only way they can survive is by adding new immigrants to their roster… Read more […]

Whoa! Republicans, Unions and Businesses All Agree on Labor Reform in Nevada!

t’s not often that businesses and unions agree on an issue, especially when it’s Republican-led reforms on collective bargaining. But in Nevada Monday, that is exactly what happened. “Obviously we’re looking to invest a lot more money in education this session,” Republican Sen. Michael Roberson testified during a state hearing according to The Associated Press. “I believe there needs to be accountability tied to that money.” Roberson is leading the charge to reform collective Read more […]

Obamacare Money being Used to Fund Union Recruitment!

Of course. Why wouldn’t our corrupt liberal federal government be shelling out our hard earned tax dollars to help recruit more people into the liberal supporting unions? It makes perfect sense. Today’s unions are a perfect example of what happens in a crony driven environment – the government pays to keep the crony happy and the crony works hard to keep their masters in charge. It’s disgusting.   According to a letter made public Saturday, federal investigators are looking into Read more […]

Obama SOTU Declares ‘Workers Don’t Need Choice’!

I’m sure the average American worker will be happy to learn that their President doesn’t think they need to have access to choice on “right to work” issues. All that American workers really need is a union to pay their dues to. I’m also betting that the fact that most unions are supportive of the Democrat agenda has nothing to do with President Obama’s ‘choice’ to stand against worker choice. (Sarcasm) The honest truth of the matter is that the modern Democrat Party doesn’t care about what the Read more […]
