This video needs little comment. I post it because some people think that public service unions, such as the WI teachers’ union, should get supported by American workers, no strings attached, even though (by my reckoning), American unions are quite selfish. See, e.g., my discussion in Solidarity With Wisconsin’s Union Workers. See also my diary Why are there no MLK’s of Labor?
Also, there’s been no accountability of Democrats (who are more or less equally to blame, as are the Republicans) for the financial mess that led to the recession, that led to decreased revenues by state and local governments.
The unions, apparently, don’t care. Not enough, anyway, and AFAIK, to call for throwing a single Democrat under the bus, who voted to end Glass Steagall and still holds office.
Apparently, unions don’t do cause and effect, being too busy being cuddly “housecats” for the Democrats. These “housecats” are members of the “veal pen”.
