    Looking for the Union Label? AFL-CIO Cries Foul Over Marriott’s Porn Ban

    Last I heard, most porn stars weren’t wearing the union label—or any label for that matter. Sure, the SEIU unionized some strippers (sorry, exotic dancers) several years ago but, by and large, most sex workers are union-free. In fact, it’s pretty rare (though not unheard of) that a porn star ever earns the claim to SAG membership. This is why the outrage by the wankers | Read More »

    NLRB Moves to Humiliate Employers, Give Unions Access to Employees & Property

    Every movement that seeks to enslave a country, every dictatorship or potential dictatorship, needs some minority group as a scapegoat which it can blame for the nation’s troubles and use as a justification of its own demands for dictatorial powers. In Soviet Russia, the scapegoat was the bourgeoisie; in Nazi Germany, it was the Jewish people; in America, it is the businessmen. — Ayn Rand, | Read More »

    Democrats Quickly Pivot to 2012, SEIU-Obama Aide Moves to DNC to Oversee OfA

    Having written about the SEIU’s other man in the White House, Patrick Gaspard, on numerous occasions, this news comes as no surprise. Following the November election, the Democrats are moving quickly to ensure that a repeat “shellacking” doesn’t happen in 2012. In so doing, the DNC is tapping Gaspard, the former political director of New York’s powerful SEIU 1199, to go help the DNC prepare | Read More »

    Pigs Get Fed, Hogs Get Slaughtered: Union Membership & America’s Looming Fiscal Crisis

    As America begins to truly understand that the high cost of having too much fat in one’s diet can lead to a heart attack, three interconnected stories* appeared in the last 24 hours that deserve some attention. The first is that, every January, the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its union membership data report. Not surprisingly, today’s BLS report summary reveals that | Read More »

    Progressives Love, Love, LOVE Unions… (For Everyone But Themselves)

    There is something untoward—almost indecent—in listening to liberal-speak*. To hear them talk, liberals progressives love, Love LOVE unions. In fact, if it weren’t for unions out beating on doors and pounding the pavement every election cycle to get Democrats elected, most progressives would be relegated to the fringes of society to sit on street corners eating alfalfa sprouts and blogging about vegan pee. However, when | Read More »

    Fighting to Free Workers’ Paychecks from Union Bosses: Advancing the Right to Work

    There is a battle brewing in several states that is going to get very heated very soon. At issue is the question of whether or not workers have a “right to work” at unionized companies without being required to pay union dues. Last week, a Minnesota state representative introduced legislation to give voters in 2012 the ability to vote whether to make Minnesota a “right | Read More »

    Anti-WalMart Thugs Target Developer: Plan Protest Outside of Private Residence

    This is a follow-up to Erick’s earlier post. Last May, a frightened teenager was trapped inside his home when a mob of SEIU astro-turfing thugs (estimated at 500 strong) trespassed on his front lawn to protest to intimidate his father, the deputy general counsel of the Bank of America. While the protesters caught the family by surprise (allegedly aided and abetted by the police), unbeknownst to | Read More »

    UAW’s King Admits Union Will Fall Without Foreign Transplants

    After all the hyperbole pouring out from the UAW about “fair elections” and companies being “human rights violators” unless they agree to the UAW’s campaign to unionize them, the UAW’s Bob King finally admitted the truth. According to the Detroit News [emphasis added]: United Auto Workers President Bob King told members tonight the union’s very survival is at stake in its efforts to organize foreign | Read More »

    The Secret Ballot Protection Act: It’s Time to Make it Law.

    Let’s put this whole debate about card-check to bed once and for all. It’s time to pass the Secret Ballot Protection Act. On Friday, the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board threatened to sue the states of Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah, if any (or all) of them attempt to enforce the recent voter-approved measures in their states that guarantee workers the right to | Read More »

    The Evil Empire Attempts to Strike Back*: Unions to Spend Millions on PR Battle

    Union bosses have been rather glum for a while now. They’ve blown hundreds of millions of their members’ money on Democrats in order to socialize medicine, kill secret-ballot elections, strangle industry and unionize America at all costs. And, what has it gotten them? They’ve exposed themselves as left-wing radicals with a global agenda, they’ve taken over a couple of car companies, and they’re trying to | Read More »

    Marxist Democrat Cringes As Russian Immigrants Compare Communism to…Democrats!

    There is just no way to describe this without a smirk and a chuckle. When you read how some of New York’s Russian immigrants (who know Soviet-style Communism all-too-well) are aligning with Republicans—because they view Democrats’ policies to be too similar to the failed policies of their homeland—there is just something richly ironic there. However, when you read how their never-met-a-Marxist-she-didn’t-love Democrat legislator reacts to | Read More »

    BREAKING: Union-Controlled NLRB Tells Voters of AZ, SC, SD & Utah to Shove It

    On November 2nd, the voters of Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Utah approved measures to ensure that employees would retain the right to a secret-ballot election on the matter of unionization. Today, the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board told the voters in those states to go pound sand [emphasis added]:

    Together We Thrive? The Marxist Message Behind the Memorial

    Even after nearly a week of the Left’s vitriolic and unwarranted public lynching of the Right over last Saturday’s massacre by a left-wing lunatic in Tuscon, I was willing to give the President the benefit of the doubt after (by most accounts) doing well in delivering Cody Keenan’s well-drafted speech on Wednesday. Heck, even his teleprompter performed without flaw, the pauses built in right at the appropriate | Read More »

    The Decline of Unions, Part One: President Jimmy Carter, Union-Buster Extraordinaire

    The following is the first of a three-part series on the decline of unions. Unions have never represented a majority of the American workforce. However, to listen to today’s union bosses, one might be led to believe that they did. Ever since their peak, in 1945, when unions represented a total of 35.5 percent of the workforce unions in the private-sector have been on an | Read More »

    The Stone-Throwing AFL-CIO Boss Who Lives in a Glass House

    Intellectual dishonesty. Other than, perhaps, sheer hypocrisy, there just doesn’t seem to be any other term that describes the Left’s behavior in the aftermath of Saturday’s massacre in Tucson. On Monday, AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka weighed in, stating in a post on the AFL-CIO blog: We must find ways to passionately debate and even disagree with each other without using words that can give unstable | Read More »
