Today unions representing millions of workers are threatening to authorize strikes. Those strikes are not for better wages. They have nothing to do with working conditions. The strikes are not even for the union members. They are in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and social justice.
The Democrats threw white middle-class workers under the bus in 2016, and it cost them an election. But you learn from your mistakes, or maybe you’re too damn smart to learn anything. That would be Democrats, who pissed of the police unions already and have now turned off a 3 million-member trade union.
For those of us around at that time, what teacher’s unions are hinting at sounds like “PATCO” more and more. If you weren’t, that refers to the Federal air traffic controllers that tried to call then-President Reagan’s bluff. By law, they couldn’t strike; they did anyways. They lost – he fired them all.
