Based on the recent onslaught of righties proclaiming PRIVATE labor unions are inherently good (due to common labor/capital goals of profit to prolong survival) and PUBLIC unions being bad (due to lack of profit based goals and the relationship between Democratic Party funding and unions in general), perhaps a perfect storm for more Obama political Jiu-Jitsu is on the horizon. That political Jiu-Jitsu would be a legislative proposal which would repeal Taft-Hartley and allow card check (EFCA) in the private sector (in ALL states) while making significant concessions to the states in terms of setting down different ground rules for collective bargaining in the public sector. I'm not saying that this would be necessarily good (but perhaps it might), but it would fit the blueprint for previous Obama political maneuvers. The silver lining is that if something of this nature did take place, it would better position the general working people for the current trend of privatization of all of our public services.
Long Live Labor!!!
