Do you remember when Democratic Sen. Bob Jauch and public employee unions protested at the State Capitol last year? Many private sector unions came out and joined the protest in solidarity with their union brothers.
Gov. Scott Walker had been working with Gogebic Taconite to bring needed jobs to northern Wisconsin. However, Democrats like Jauch have bucked Walker the whole way. Democrats will put economic prosperity and a chance to achieve the American dream on the back burner for private sector unions. There is no way Democrats will let it appear that Walker had achieved success with an iron mine in northern Wisconsin.
Gogebic Taconite had already negotiated a favorable labor agreement with the Operating Engineers Union, Pipe Fitters Union, Electrical Workers Union, Iron Workers Union, Carpenters Union and many others.
It appears to me that Democrats and public employee unions only have selective outrage and selective solidarity for the working man in the middle class. Public employee unions did not make one sound of support or one move of solidarity for their union brothers in the private sector; they were too obsessed with their rage and recall for Walker.
This mining issue is proof positive Democrats and many union members could care less about jobs and economic prosperity for the middle class, for them it is all about political power.
The American dream is something everyone should have a shot at, so I have a question for all of you private sector trade union members: Now that Senator Jauch has killed mining in Wisconsin, how does it feel to have your shot at the American dream kicked to the curb by your public employee union brothers and the Democratic Party?
