Big Labor has a Big Job

Labor unions like to use Labor Day as an opportunity to celebrate their exploits, but the American people aren’t convinced.  According to Rasmussen Reports:

Forty-five percent (45%) of Americans believe that labor unions make our country weaker, while just 26% say unions make the nation stronger.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 13% believe organized labor has no impact on America, and 16% are not sure.

Nearly one-out-of-two Americans (48%) also think unions have outlasted their usefulness. Twenty-nine percent (29%) disagree, and 23% are undecided.

The public’s distrust is well placed.  Unfortunately, large labor unions have an interest quite apart from that of their workers–check the outsize compensation awarded so many union officials.  indeed, many labor leaders use their positions to promote their ideological fantasies, which in most cases reflect economic policies which would make workers worse off.
