In Europe, labor unions have a stranglehold on economic growth. From wildcat strikes to violent destruction of property, powerful unions run amok, destroying jobs and prosperity on much of the European continent. Enactment of a similar system in America would be a nightmare, but for Big Labor bosses, it is a dream.
To try to impose European Big Labor policies on the United States, International Labor bosses are meeting in Washington, D.C. as part of a global push for forced unionism.
“More that 200 union officials from 63 countries have convened for a summit this week hosted by the AFL-CIO to discuss ways to reverse the decline in union ranks in the U.S. and other industrialized countries,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
Not surprisingly, the one-trick ponies are pushing for enactment of the Card Check Scam Bill to force more Americans onto the union rolls.
