U.S. Unions to Colombians: We Don’t Care

By July 21, 2008Labor Unions, Trade

The Washington Post puts on the front page today a story and photos about Colombia Independence Day, which was marked by huge rallies calling on the FARC terrorists to free their hostages and bring the guerilla war to a close.

Meanwhile, here in the United States, organized labor continues to demand obedience and opposition from members of Congress to the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement. Unions to Congress: You must repudiate all these Colombians crying for freedom.

Why? Because we say so.
