All irony and sarcasm deeply intended. :roll:

Trump is about to make America much crueler to unionized workers
Union busters are going to win so much they get sick of winning.
https://thinkprogress.org/trump-unioniz ... d4ee89346d

Since Election Day, unions have lived on borrowed time. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which has exclusive authority over many key questions of labor law, is still controlled by Democrats — thus shielding workers and their unions from attacks that became far likelier the moment Donald Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election.

But this period of interregnum is about to end. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) began the process of confirming the first of Trump’s two nominees to the NLRB on Monday. When both nominees sit on the Board, a swift rollback of union rights is likely.

As soon as this week, the Senate is likely to vote on Marvin Kaplan, the first of these two nominees. A former GOP Hill staffer, Kaplan drafted legislation—strongly supported by business lobby groups—which would have made it easier for employers to fight unionization campaigns.

Trump’s other nominee, William Emanuel, is a veteran management-side lawyer who touts his “particular expertise with laws concerning union access to the private property of employers.” He’s also filed briefs in three cases claiming that employers can force workers to waive their right to bring class actions and similar lawsuits.

Workers of the world ... stop being conned by this conman.

Sad how our forefathers working hard labor fought and died for human rights. The battle never ends.

The NLRB is where the work is done for or against labor that no one sees. When we have a Republican administration, they always put nasty anti-union folks in that try to obliterate workers. We had eight years with Bush. It was very tough.

But here's the thing - when we have a Democratic administration, we don't get the opposite, where they open the candy store. The people they put in don't always side with the worker, either. They usually come down on both sides, and you'll often lose at the NLRB. But at least is seems like a fair fight.
