Chuck Schumer Just Declared War On Your Ability To Design Your Own Job
Schumer is undoubtedly heeding the warning of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, who said opposition to the bill would result in a lack of support from the union of unions. In fact, the bill was only brought to the House floor after 72 representatives petitioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to do so. Many of those 72 are endorsed by the AFL-CIO.
The AFL-CIO has seen union membership drop in the wake of a Supreme Court decision preventing them from taking workers’ money without permission, and has been consequently pumping even more money away from labor organizing and into political action.
