"For decades unions have unwaveringly supported the Democratic Party, sticking with them through thick and thin. However, in recent years, the Democratic party has repaid union loyalty by pushing through pro-corporate legislation at the expense of the working class. It may very well be time for the unions to break from the Democrats and form their own party.
The betrayal of of labor by Democrats began with NAFTA, which would allow free trade between the US, Mexico, and Canada. It was touted as a great deal to expand and now grow America's economy, even though there was resistance to it not only from labor unions but from ordinary people.
Fear [lol] was part of the arsenal to get the bill passed........" my emphasis
I urge you to all read on, be civil to each other while once again, I go out for the day. I'll be back in the early evening though, and I will have a lot to say then starting with this thread. Most of what I have to say will be said on another thread, and it will not be said in anger though, but rather in sadness....
