6 Responses to Ronald Reagan: Collective Bargaining = Freedom (VIDEO)

    Zach, great catch.

  2. John Casper says:

    OT, “WPRI study flawed, and reaches flawed conclusions on right-to-work”


    By: “Gordon Lafer, research associate at the Economic Policy Institute, is a political economist and an associate professor at the University of Oregon’s Labor Education and Research Center.”

    WPRI is funded by wingnuts at the Bradley Foundation.

    “Today in America, unions have a secure place in our industrial life. Only a handful of reactionaries harbor the ugly thought of breaking unions and depriving working men and women of the right to join the union of their choice. I have no use for those — regardless of their political party — who hold some vain and foolish dream of spinning the clock back to days when organized labor was huddled, almost as a hapless mass. Only a fool would try to deprive working men and women of the right to join the union of their choice.” —Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Without spending–there are no sales;

    Without sales–there are no profits;

    Without profits–there is no demand for workers;

    Without demand for workers–there is no job creation;

    and without job creation–there is no recovery!

    Zach, this video could be the key to taking back the Assembly and the Senate in 2016. Every Democratic candidate can use President Reagan to run on collective bargaining. Not sure why unions aren’t by TV and radio spots to run it now. Run it on wingnut radio.
