The People v. K Street: The Obamacare Battle

By Rick Manning The K Street vultures are out in force. With both the continuing resolution and debt ceiling extension legislation pending, the tassel loafer lobbying crowd has descended on Capitol Hill with Obamacare fixes and other wish lists to be crammed into any final resolution. Big Labor wants changes in the way reinsurance is taxed under Obamacare, and suddenly […]

Oops! From the one picture is worth a thousand words file…

If I were trying to make the case that women should hold a higher percentage of construction jobs, I probably wouldn’t use a picture of a woman pushing a 1/3 full gardening wheelbarrow to make the point.  Hey Labor bloggers – with one image you managed to reinforce the very stereotype that your article is trying to break down. See […]

NLRB: The little labor board that could… destroy your job

By Rick Manning The Obama Administration and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pulled the wool over the eyes of naïve Senate Republicans in agreeing to pull back two objectionable appointees to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in exchange for the dropping of any filibuster threat against replacement nominees.

Did SEIU-backed worker center FastFoodForward stage an emergency?

By Brad Tidwell Using the hashtag #4259Broadway, SEIU-backed worker center Fast Food Forward posted pictures of a strike at McDonalds. Suspicious timing, or fortunate photo op?

Are Big Labor and Democrats on the same page?

By Rick Manning Major fault lines have suddenly appeared in the formerly dependable Big Labor/Democratic Party coalition, and the earthquake that follows could have major future electoral ramifications. Labor unions are one of the primary funders of Democratic and far left politics.  The hundreds of millions of dollars they contribute into the Democratic machine gives them clout that far exceeds […]

NLRB’s naked overreach: Lying about legitimacy

By Brad Tidwell If there’s any overarching theme to be found from the Obama Administration’s last few years in office, it’s the “we can’t wait” theme. The Obama administration has never been long on patience, oversight or precedent when it comes in opposition to their plans. One of the best examples of this has been the actions of the National […]

Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement responding to the Supreme […]

North Carolina Republicans stand up to Wisconsin-style union bullying

By Willie Deutsch In what looks eerily similar to the Wisconsin protests of 2011, union members and the NAACP are holding weekly protests at the North Carolina capitol against the conservative policies of the Republican legislature. While the Wisconsin protests were specifically against the repeal of collective bargaining for certain public sector workers and of union dues being automatically deducted from state payroll […]

New boss, same as the old ‘Boss’

New boss, same as the old ‘Boss’ By Marta H. Mossburg For those looking for insight on the scandals engulfing the Obama administration, read “Boss,” Mike Royko’s classic 1971 biography of former Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley.
