Two recently released reports have once again confirmed in vivid detail what many people have known for a long time: That the big organized labor movement has lost its way.
Supporters of the failed economic policies of the last few years want America to believe that the August employment numbers are an outlier. But the latest anemic jobs report is not at an anomaly. Millions of Americans are struggling and seeing their American Dream slowly disappear, despite being technically in the fifth year of a “recovery.”
The newest jobs report was largely met with yet another shoulder shrug, as lethargic recovery has become the new normal – except for those who are being left behind in the Obama economy.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the employment situation for June last week and the outlook is not as worthy of cheerleading as some on the left would have you believe.
In a move consistent with growing American sentiment in recent years, SCOTUS handed down a partial blow this week to Big Labor today that will prevent heavy handed union leaders from forcibly mandating “partial public employees” pay union dues regardless of whether the employee wants to.
