In 2011, The Labor Relations Research think tank out of Washington reports there have been 4,400 incidents of union violence in the past 20 years and 11,600 acts of violence since 1975. And these are only the ones they know about .the Hobbs Act, which reads: “Whosoever in any way or degree obstructs, delays, or affects commerce or the movement of any article or commodity in commerce, by robbery or extortion, or attempts or conspires to do so, or commits or threatens physical violence to any person or property in furtherance of a plan or purpose to do anything of this section, shall be fined not more than $100,000, imprisoned for a term of not more than 20 years, or both.” (con't nxt post) MusingsbyMarian dotcom
