Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

At White House, union card is better than security badge

New, improved White House visitor lists came out during the holidays. See if you can say “burying the lead” five times fast.

SEIU president Andy Stern and Anna Burger takes first place on the visitor’s list, much like Garry Kasparov would take first place in a chess tourney against, well, you and everyone you’ve ever known. From the Heritage blog:

The Service Employees International Union takes the top prize as President Obama’s favorite labor union. President Andy Stern and Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger have visited the White House nearly 60 times, including 11 meetings with Obama and another with Vice President Biden.

The vast majority of people who work at the White House– and I don’t just mean the peons– I mean everyone including Deputy Assistants to the President and Special Assistants to the President don’t have that kind of access to the President. Really.

Feel like cyber-stalking more White House visitors? Visit the list HERE.
