Infrastructure plan is really a massive push to unionize the US workforce

It cancels right-to-work laws in 27 states that protect workers from having to pay union dues if they don’t want to join.

It rigs union elections by replacing secret balloting with a system called card check. Organizers will be able to see which workers vote “no” and intimidate them. 

 

During the 2020 presidential contest, unions donated millions to Biden’s campaign, manned phone banks and got out the vote for Democrats. Now it’s payback time.

The goal of the American Jobs Plan is to increase the ranks of dues-paying union members. When the next election rolls around, that will fund more campaign contributions to Democrats and more union help on Election Day.

Unionizing America is the strategy to secure a permanent Democratic majority, the rights of rank-and-file workers be damned.

 

On April 26, Biden wrongly claimed that it is “the policy of the United States to encourage worker organizing and collective bargaining,” and he called for an increase in “worker power” — sounding like Karl Marx calling on workers to unite. In an unprecedented move, he is also establishing a task force to throw the entire weight of the federal government behind organizing American workers.

Never been union myself, however from what I’ve seen of today’s unions, all they are good for is saving the jobs of certain* worthless employees.

 

certain*  In my experience dealing with Unions, “certain” always translated into “Of a certain race”.  Black, White, Other:  Didn’t matter, whichever Race controlled the Union, was the Race they protected and the hell with everyone else.

Joe is undoing what Trump did.

Remember how he slashed dues collected when folks had a choice?

 

Giving folks a choice is not something Democrats believe in.

Jeepers, coincidental,ly we have a juge influx of unskilled  illegal aliens just ripe for the training.

 

 

Anyone remember how, suddenly, after Republicans freed Democrats slaves and Democrats had all these low skilled workers hanging around, next thing you know Democrats realized they had a schighdt load of newly minted voters on their hands, enough to change the Souths representation in DC.

Funny how this was never mentioned by the MSM

 

“The President’s unprecedented attack on the NLRB’s Congressionally-established independence should have shocked any NLRB official concerned about neutrally applying the law, rather than twisting it to the benefit of the President’s political allies,” said National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation President Mark Mix. “Yet the documents obtained show the Biden power grab was celebrated by many inside the agency who are supposed to impartially apply the law.”

“Independent-minded workers should not have their cases adjudicated by officials who celebrate partisan, pro-union boss attacks on the NLRB,” added Mix. “The Biden Administration continues to stack the deck in favor of union bosses and against the rights of workers who want nothing to do with union affiliation, and these emails show many at the NLRB seem all too happy to go along.”

The afl-cio bragged of organizing the Chinese developed mail in ballot overthrow of the election. The afl-cio wants removal on a federal level of right-to-work laws. Removal of employees rights on representation and loss of defense against discrimination. Job suppression from groups that created biggest race, gender, handicapped, gay biases in American industry.  Biases and discrimination which required federal legislated worker protection from the unions.

 

Massachusetts already only uses selected unions for all contracts which involves major graft. Yet a labor office sets minimum wages, health, safety on every work detail possible. Which largely should qualify every worker in state of being represented.

No it's not.  Without secret ballots, unions are a joke and will be horrible for the American worker.
