Happy Labor Day, Shank You Very Much

We some interesting movement on the local labor front just before Labor Day.  According to a news article in the Milwaukee Community Journal, SEIU (the union) pulled their contract with Wisconsin Jobs Now to coordinate the "Fight for $15" protests.  In case you were wondering why this anti job movement included a provision for union membership, that should answer it for you.

Much to the chagrin of many, Unions are a business, plain and simple.  They hired WJN to run a recruiting aspect of their business.  Wisconsin Job Now and new director Martha De La Rosa who according to the article "house their staff/workers, provided administrative and communications support" have to be licking their chops after this cut in income.

It will be interesting to see who the new faces of Fight for $15 will be, though I'm sure we will see some of the same faces pretending to concerned about the workers rather than their employers, the union.

Here's the crème de la crème of hypocrisy:
SEIU won’t allow Fight for $15 (and a Union) employees to join SEIU’s staff union, and SEIU may have violated the contract with its staff union.

Happy Post Labor Day
