Labor unions self-destruction a desperate effort

Labor unions, particularly the public service employee unions like SEIU, poured members’ money into elections and lobbying for regulations that benefit the unions, but not their members.

Columnist Linda Chavez writes about the unions’ fear that the president they got elected has failed to promote pet projects like Card Check and a growing discontent among both their membership and non-union workers. Tax payers, who view the unions’ underfunded pension plans, increasing financial burden on the GDP and lust for socially progressive government, as detrimental to the future of the United States.
