House passes anti worker bill yesterday and my Congressman makes a fool out of himself. Approves pro-union bill despite dim Senate odds. Tuesday along a mostly party line vote, the house passed a bill if passed and signed would raise pay,increase the workforce by 30-40% and destroy productivity. The video below shows my Congressman ( Tim Ryan-D-Ohio ) flapping his arms like a grounded loon. Obvious that he’s had some of his mothers DAGO Red. A homemade Italian wine made by and enjoyed by millions.
While Republicans have welcomed blue-collar workers drawn to the party by conservative cultural issues, many draw the line at measures that would expand the power of labor and could benefit their economic bottom line.
“I’ve heard Democrats argue that it’s the unions that built the middle class,” said Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., the senior Republican on the House labor panel. “No, the unions didn’t build the middle class. Entrepreneurs and individual workers in this country built the middle class. And what this bill does is take away their freedom.”
Labor unions have long been a bedrock of Democratic support. But as the number of unionized workers has dwindled over recent decades, so too has labor’s power.
I’m sure this bill will crash and burn in the Senate.
