I guess this isn’t shocking news in any way, but it is interesting to seem the head of the AFL-CIO put it so bluntly:
If you listened to the rest of the clip you probably loved, as I did, the part where Trumka explains that nations around the world are promising people free health care and generous retirement benefits. I assume he means Europe, but has he seen the news lately in England or Greece or Spain or Portugal? Apparently not.
Europe is cutting back, but doing so too late. The Euro is at the brink of collapse. Is this what Trumka wants us to emulate?
