Article 43

 

An Open Plea to Labor Unions

The 2004 Presidential election is over. Unions backed Kerry. Kerry Lost. So what are they going to do now?

The Labor Unions donated more than $40,000,000 to the Kerry Campaign and Kerry lost the election. My first question is were you backing the right candidate? My second question is why were you spending money from Union Dues on a Presidential Election? My third question is why didn’t you spend the $40,000,000 on a campaign to bring jobs to the US instead of trying to defeat a sitting president and backing a loosing Presidential Candidate?

Now that the 2004 election is over, are the labor unions going to go back to sleep until 2008? Are the unions going to work with President Bush to affect US policy in favor of the American Worker?

If Unions had millions of dollars to back a Presidential candidate why don’t they spend millions of dollars on AD campaigns targeting large companies like IBM or Dell who outsource our jobs? Why aren’t they exposing companies like Sears who claims their tools are made in America, but all their power tools are made in China? These companies are the real enemy of the American worker. Presidents to NOT hire or fire workers, companies do.

Why didn’t the labor unions use their financial clout to lobby the American people? Why didn’t they buy Ads encouraging Americans to stop buying products from any company that relocates jobs from America to a foreign country?

In closing, the “Look for the Union Label” song in the 60’s was catchy, but most Americans didn’t get it. Unions had no problem spending millions of union dollars putting on ads to tear down a Presidential candidate, why didn’t they use their clout to expose corporate greed and tear down companies that outsource jobs?

The people have the power to change their purchasing habits. Lets get “MAD as hell” at one company at a time until all US companies hear us! Lets declare war on companies that outsource jobs or close manufacturing plants in America to relocate them off shore.

It is time for Unions to think and act outside the BOX.
