Union Thuggery

A term which has become redundant. I guess the stuff coming out of Richard Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO, should be expected. It must suck to see in just 26 years your share of the workforce has gone from 20% to a little over 12% or a loss of about 2.4 million union members since 1983. Seeing their power and political influence over the last few decades erode has made them a little bitter, and well delusional.

Via Michelle Malkin:

[Trumka said]We have to offer working people something other than the dead-end choice between the failed agenda of greed and the voices of hate and division and violence…

…In the short term, said Trumka, the labor movement has to “recapture the moment and take control of the national conversation.” Building for the future,we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now.

Interesting take on our country and how it is run. Re-establish popular control over corporations? I am sorry Mr. Trumka but are you suggesting the "working man" just take over companies and redistribute wealth? Oh wait you may actually be succeeding at such: Teamsters Attempt to Oust Fed-Ex Chairman
