In contrast to last year's mobilization, Indiana AFL-CIO President Nancy Guyott said only that right-to-work had to be defeated on the floors of the legislature. The state federation thus frittered away its membership's energy and anger.
Labor's call for a mass mobilization came only on the day union leaders knew the bill was about to be signed into law. Even then, the heads of the AFL-CIO waited obediently until the bill was actually voted through, and only then led a march in the streets in a demonstration that lasted less then half an hour and ruffled no feathers.
Last, but certainly not least, the Indiana AFL-CIO leadership decided to do nothing on Super Bowl Sunday.
The above commentary is the best I have read on what went wrong in Indiana.
