Unions dream big for Obama’s 2nd term

By Dave Boyer, The Washington Times

When President Obama spoke out forcefully against Michigan’s right-to-work law, it was a rare example of the president putting on public display his support of organized labor.

“What they’re really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money,” Mr. Obama told union workers, reciting labor’s talking points as faithfully as if his speech had been written by the United Auto Workers.

Big Labor hopes it’s a sign that Mr. Obama will step into the fray on behalf of union workers more openly during his second term, whether it’s stopping an expansion of right-to-work laws in states or working toward labor’s bigger dream of approving “card check,” which is federal legislation that would make it much easier for nonunion workplaces to organize.
