Our State Of The Union Address


As demonstrated by the recent events in Wisconsin and many other States, the now-resolved NFL labor dispute, the NBA ongoing lockout, Teamsters President James Hoffa, Jr.'s political rant against the Tea Party, and the NLRB's attack on the Boeing Company's decision to begin manufacturing operations in South Carolina, unions are increasingly in the news - and the publicity is probably good for organized labor. If you only saw the news coverage, you might assume that organized labor, and the popularity of unions in general, are on the rise. But, you would be wrong.

What better time than the recent Labor Day Holiday - a creation of the Labor Movement - to assess the current state of organized labor.
