Pro-Union Is Not Pro-Worker

By Frank Ryan/American Thinker

A recurring theme from the current administration is that to be pro-organized labor is to be pro-worker.  Concurrently, the administration has consistently refuted that it is using class warfare as a theme.

A comment from Vice President Biden in March 2011 summed it up when he stated, “We don’t see the value of collective bargaining; we see the absolute positive necessity of collective bargaining.  Let’s get something straight: the only people who have the capacity — organizational capacity and muscle — to keep, as they say, the barbarians from the gate, is organized labor.  And make no mistake about it: the guys on the other team get it.  They know if they cripple labor, the gate is open, man.  The gate is wide open.  And we know that, too.”

For Joe Biden to incorrectly and belligerently suggest that being pro-union means being pro-worker is pure flawed logic.  He obviously has never worked as a supplier to a large union company or worked as an employee in a company supplying a union company.
