Wish somebody would come out with a definitive study about the hijacking of the labor movement in America, first by the Reds and later on by floatsam - thugs and assorted scum - like this guy. Union leadership is so far disconnected from the majority of workers, it's shocking.

There's no federal funding for that particular study, at least not under this president/

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is looking forward to some "flexibility" in a second Obama term should the president win tomorrow. Trumka told the Atlantic an Obama re-election will bring back card check, or in other words, the elimination of a secret ballot for union members.

"[...] You'll see it," he says. "That's within the next term." How is that possible, without a Democratic House of Representatives or 60 votes in the Senate? Trumka smiles. His eyes twinkle.

"There's another election between now and then," he says. And the AFL-CIO isn't going anywhere.
