Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

News Roundup: AFL-CIO, Obama, and Socialism

The AFL-CIO wants Obama to nationalize the banks:

Labor leaders said the administration appeared to be vacillating on nationalization partly out of fear of Republican attacks that it was adopting socialist policies.

Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

The transcript of Obama’s remarks to the AFL-CIO executive council is now available.
