After watching labor bosses destroy our automobile industry, it’s amazing that the Obama Administration would put the union bosses front and center at a “Job Summit.” Fox News reports that:
“according to Federal Election Commission records, of the 29 attendees named on a partial guest list of the 133 forum attendees, five donated personally to Obama while four others work at organizations that contributed heavily to political action committees that supported his campaign. Several attendees are labor leaders whose political action committees contributed impressive amounts to Obama’s war chest, including one group that gave nearly $29.5 million. American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten will also be at the summit. The AFT, along with the AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education, gave Obama $1,997,375 in October 2008. And the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union, which donated $673,309 to Obama from February to October 2008, will also be represented at the forum.”
The Administration continues to get criticized for its failure to create jobs. Depending on the forced-unionism agenda of the union bosses to correct the problem is a certain path to further failure.
