Just another speech to get money. Where are all of these politicians who take the money of labor when we need them? No where to be found. When the transit workers went on strike Schumer and Clinton couldn't distance themselves fast enough. What about when the government was demonizing the auto workers and blaming them for the downfall of the auto industry. It didn't stop them from taking money from those unions.

The AFL-CIO is a joke. They take money from the working man and give it to politicians that have never done an honest days work in their life. Then if your lucky maybe a politician will throw the occasional bone if it is convenient for them. The AFL-CIO doesn't care because them and all their appointed friends sit back in their offices and collect a paycheck for doing little more than a politician.

What's the answer? Cut off all money to the politicians NOW!!! When they pay up the unions contribute but not before. Organized labor was built by hard working people willing to stand up to big business and in many cases government no matter what the cost. It was not built by a bunch of wannabe kiss asses who are happy to take and spend the working mans money and give them nothing in return.

Good to see that the Labor Movement will be changing and I expect that they will be making a huge comeback. The kids today don't allow themselves to be shit on in the workplace like the generation that preceeded them.

I predict a stronger and bigger union movement will soon emerge.

I will beleive it when I see it. I don't think that kids today have the stomach to go without pay, or take a stand. Until labor is ready to take the fight to the employers and not back down no matter how much it hurts nothing will change.

Kids today want everything handed to them on a silver platter.
