With the help of Democrat politicians, SEIU has been raking in tens of millions of dollars each year by skimming dues off the top of Medicaid checks sent to personal care assistants, who care for […]

Sorry Charlie

By Richard McCarty As a career politician, Congressman Charlie Dent (R-PA) should know that politics is a team sport. He should also recognize that he’s not his team’s owner, or his team’s coach, or even his team’s quarterback. But instead of being a team player, Dent’s acting like a disgruntled player who keeps trying to hand the ball to the […]

Union Foolishly Persists, Wasting Time and Resources

By Richard McCarty In 2011, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) and its co-conspirators started invading Maryland Walmart stores and harassing customers and staff.

SEIU Tried Bullying the Oregon Legislature

By Richard McCarty Last year, the Service Employees International Union spent over $5 million trying to get a ballot measure passed that would have imposed a huge tax hike on businesses in Oregon. Measure 97 would have increased taxes on businesses’ gross sales, not their profits, by $3 billion each year. According to the state’s nonpartisan Legislative Revenue Office, the […]

Why doesn’t the UFCW respect Hispanic women?

By Richard McCarty Since last year, Mickey Kasparian, the president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 135, and his lackeys have been accused of discrimination and/or mistreatment by not one, not two, not three, but four Hispanic women.

Georgia on my mind: A bold way forward on federal civil service reform

By Peter Hong There is a stealth resistance underfoot against President Donald J. Trump and his nascent Administration. It is deep. It is powerful. It is in his backyard. And under current law, there is little he can do about it. This resistance is the administrative state.  And though rabble-rousing rioters are dominating the media coverage, the quiet bureaucratic resistance […]

Rescuing Main Street from the fiduciary rule

By Peter Hong Just a few weeks ago, April 2017 was ready to deliver a crushing blow to the economic health of Main Street America.

Big labor takes it in the chin as right to work on fast track at state level

By Richard McCarty Last year, Big Labor gambled on Democrats, and they lost big at both the state and federal level. Now they find themselves out in the cold in many places.
