I'm going to keep this Labor Day blog post short and sweet. When you watch tonight's network newscasts, you will probably see many politicians, including the President pay lip service to unions at various Labor Day parades and functions. They will be singing the praises of workers and unions to the skies. In the midst of all their accolades, I want you to keep in mind that action speaks louder than words.
Traditionally, unions have backed Democrats with campaign donations and member's votes. Lately, very few Democrats, especially the President, have returned the favor. If our Democratic electeds were sincere about supporting workers and unions, we would already have an Employee Free Choice Act passed and wouldn't have to worry about a President who misrepresents job killing “Free” trade agreements as job creators and basically agrees with trickle down economics.
My suggestion to unions is that they deny the Labor Day photo opportunity to insincere politicians by letting them know that they are NOT welcome to make Labor Day speeches in any union's venue!
That being said, I want to wish my union brothers and sisters and all working people fighting for change a happy Labor Day.

Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
