In a news conference Wednesday, Richard Trumka, the A.F.L.-C.I.O.s president, said that without the huge push by the nations labor unions, Mr. Obama never would have won Ohio, Wisconsin and Nevada and their combined 34 electoral votes. In his news conference, Mr. Trumka stopped short of saying he expected any quid pro quo from Mr. Obama. But he made clear what organized labor hoped for, especially as the White House prepares to negotiate with Republicans on Capitol Hill on how to reduce the budget deficit.

Obama’s brown shirted storm troopers.
Hey, union boys and girls. You are just a part of the fraud.
they are only going to get stronger under obama..we are now a one party nation
White blue collar workers ought to be a natural Republican constituency. However, the party has sold its soul to the New York banking oligarchs and the globalist/secularist multinationalists. The result is unrestricted free trade on whatever we import, while our trading “partners” won’t let our exports into their markets. The multinationals send all our manufacturing jobs to China and then re-import what they produce overseas, and the Chinese steal our intellectual property while denying us access to their markets.
The new conservatism that grows out of yesterday’s loss must be a populist, anti-”free” trade conservatism that appeals to white blue collar workers. In so doing, we can both protect our economy from foreign fraud while peeling off union votes in the rust belt and midwest.
I proudly boycott their junk.
But, but Mr. Tromka, I thought that women won the vote for Obama. No wait, it was the Latinos that won the vote for Obama. Or was it was the blacks that won for Obama?
Have they explained why their pro union proposals in Michigan got crushed like bugs?
as business start cutting back and not expanding and laying people off the unions are going to get smaller ...they cut their own throat!
I have tried to explain to union members that are fighting for their big pensions and at the same time wanting to crush business that if business doesn’t make a profit their pension plans won’t make money from their investments. I think some of them thought about it for a minute but it all came back to the fact that the pensions are guaranteed whether the funds made money or not. They just don’t get that is the road to collapse.
Unions working to keep productivity down, costs up, and the commisar in power. All Hail.
Well, congrats guys.
Because under obama there will be little to no labor. Little to no labor means few to none labor workers. Few to none labor workers means no labor union.
There will be more government workers; public employee unions are the most radical. Teacher unions and social service unions all benefit from increased government spending.
Coming to a cubicle near you.
What surprise? Layoffs of pension cuts?
