To AFL-CIO’s Sweeney, America is a Dictatorship

By December 10, 2007Briefly Legal

How else can one interpret John Sweeney’s bizarre rantings on the occasion of a gathering of union leaders from around the world?

President Bush and his cronies have done all they can to destroy workers’ rights around the world. The truth is until we are able to restore basic workers’ rights in the United States, the worldwide decline will not stop.

Sweeney’s solution to this “destruction” is for Congress to pass the Employee Free Choice Act, which denies employees the right to a secret ballot when voting to affiliate with a union. Sweeney sees workers’ rights being destroyed, and his solution: Destroy them some more!

Truly Orwellian.
