A while back, Politico hired Mike Elk as a labor reporter. Now Elk is attempting to unionize the Politico staff (pass the popcorn). Why does Elk want to unionize? Get a load of this: Overwork is a problem that Elk plans on addressing in his union drive. “I can’t work the kind of hours I […]

These clowns eagerly ushered in the era of Hope & Change, so break out the tiny violins as they whine about being victims of their own idiocy: A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen […]

So what if your Big Mac costs $12, the unions want in! Beginning a day of protests that organizers say will spread to 50 cities and 1,000 stores across the country, a crowd of chanting workers gathered Thursday morning at a McDonald’s in midtown Manhattan to call for higher wages and the chance to join […]

It’s hardly a surprise that Obama-the-Spiteful is incapable of letting states legislate without putting in his two cents (which were worth five cents when he took office, by the way) worth of federal intimidation: Lots of folks scoffed in town when reports surfaced that Democrats had petitioned the President of the United States to insert […]

And here is that statement: Update: If this would have happened at a Tea Party rally (which of course it never would) the president would already be out holding a full blown emergency press conference as we speak. What happened to Mr. Tarver is a shame. Not surprising in the least considering the goon-squads that […]

Strong-arm thuggery and intimidation tactics are all they know. The Michigan House Dems’ Tweet was deleted but WZ has a screenshot along with video. There are also reports that union protesters stormed the Americans for Prosperity tent and tore it down. I don’t know if any of these goons have seen Schoolhouse Rock, but the […]

Cue the union outrage: Republicans slammed right-to-work legislation through the Michigan House and Senate Thursday, drawing raucous protests from throngs of stunned union supporters, whose outnumbered Democratic allies were powerless to stop it. Just hours after they were introduced, both chambers approved measures prohibiting private unions from requiring that nonunion employees pay fees. The Senate […]

The unions tried to disrupt things, but it looks like that effort will fail big time: After opening earlier than in previous Thanksgiving weekends, Wal-Mart reported its “best ever Black Friday” sales, including bigger crowds than last year, the company said Friday. The retailer rolled out deals starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. From […]

More than 18,000 workers are set to lose their jobs because of Hostess halting operations due to a union strike, but a bankruptcy judge/possible huge Twinkie lover wants the two sides to mediate before shutting down for good: Hostess had requested Judge Robert Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains, N.Y., who is […]

I’m a little more confident of Republican victory next month if this is the best even Big Labor can do: Actually I think that Romney does understand the people who pick up garbage… more than they think. Not that AFSCME would have bothered to look into it. Frankly I’m surprised they didn’t go into more […]
