Nathan Newman writes about the Bush administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s latest assault on the rights of workers. This is worth reading to get more of an idea of the kinds of things that happen with Republicans run the country.
This case is an example of why so few union people are Greens. Ralph Nader says there’s no difference between Democrats and Republicans, but this kind of thing shows why people in the Labor Movement so strongly support Democrats and don’t succumb to the Green’s call to split the coalition. Union people are living in a reality where they see every day how their jobs and rights are on the line. They understand about getting what you CAN get, incremental improvement, and the harm that can be done when people demand ideological perfection over pragmatic compromise.
