Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Do you know who’s not one of the CEOs Obama admires?

Roger Smith, the CEO of American Income Life Insurance Company, that’s who.

Then again, insurance CEOs aren’t usually on anyone’s top-ten lists these days, that is, except for unions’.

Every time the unions need a CEO to embarrass other CEOs, they trot out Roger Smith.

So I guess it is no surprise that the unions’ favorite CEO didn’t make President Obama’s cut.

Do you know who did make Obama’s list of most admired CEOs? It’s a different Smith, FedEx’s Fred Smith, who has been battling UPS and the Teamster’s attempts to unionize his company by bringing it under the auspices of the National Labor Relations Act.
