What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Richard Trumka heaps praise on Wall Street's President

http://www.aflcio.org/Blog/Political-Action-Legislation/Trumka-Obama-Forcefully-Advocated-for-Working-Families-in-State-of-Union

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka heaps praise on Wall Street's president, Barack Obama...

"President Obama eloquently and forcefully advocated for working families throughout his State of the Union Address," last night.


Trumka also said:

The  president’s focus on raising wages through collective bargaining, better paying jobs, a fairer tax code, fair overtime rules, and expanded access to education and earned leave sent the right message at the right time..."


Is there anyone who actually believes this crap?

While Richard Trumka continues to hold up this Dumb Donkey's tail, the only thing left for workers to fight over is what the sparrows leave behind.

For the hundreds of millions of dollars and energy labor is wasting supporting the Democratic Party and its worthless politicians, the working class could have its own political party--- a party similar to Canada's socialist New Democratic Party which is organized labor's party.
