Forum Post: ***"The Democrats' Betrayal of Labor Unions"***

"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....

While they both argue about unions, the two main stream parties ship all the jobs out of the country.

How either of them could claim to be pro union is beyond me. Republicans are worse than Dems on unions, but they are both so horrific its not even worth humoring.

Shipping jobs overseas to zero env regs countries. How screwed is that?!!

BS. People just want to hear themselves use the word 'betrayal'. Nobody betrayed anybody. Nobody owes anyone. Talk about NAFTA and betrayal all you want but I have 2 words fer ya;

Reagan Democrats

Yes i understand what the Republicans have done

Do you understand what the Democrats have done?

BTW, let's stick to the issue on the thread

Do you disagree that The Democrats have betrayed unions?

If so, Why?

"Yes i understand what the Republicans have done"

You do??

When will you be demonstrating this intimate understanding, because it's very necessary to the formulation of an answer to your seemingly loaded question.

Yet again, even at it's worst, the ratio of damage would be 10 to 1, with the lions share being done by (R)epelican'ts, and their libe(R)tarian kin.

The info in your 2 year old link by the way, is the same as was posted here a long time ago and already dealt with.

And I do tire of rehashing the same thing over and over.

Why not consider instead the HEAVY amount of damage that "right to work" (for less) legislation is causing to this day?

There's the REAL betrayal.

Gee, I wonder if labornotes.org will be pro union or anti union?

You should definitely be afraid to read it and find out.

FEARzilla!!!

FEAR of unions is part of who are.

Most likely because you've not actually worked in your life yet.

No fear, or FEAR (except that sweet video game). Just concerned with your sources.

You can't extrapolate the conclusion you are making from this very limited data set.

It's ridiculous to even try, but you did.

FEAR, is what you are.

Transference will get you nowhere.

You didn't read 'a' one of them.

silly zilla.

Brains are for people.
