COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

President Joe Biden is clearly pushing and promoting unions. Biden is traveling to Virginia and Louisiana this week to pitch his American Jobs Plan — also called an “infrastructure” plan. New bridges, safer highways and more broadband are easy sells. But that’s only half the story. This is also a massive and coercive push to unionize the American workforce — whether workers want it or not.
Biden’s plan is a wish list of changes sought by union bosses. It cancels right-to-work laws in 27 states that protect workers from having to pay union dues if they don’t want to join. It also rigs union elections by replacing secret balloting with a system called card check. Organizers will be able to see which workers vote “no” and intimidate them. During the 2020 presidential contest, unions donated millions to Biden’s campaign, manned phone banks and got out the vote for Democrats. Now it’s payback time.
The goal of the American Jobs Plan is to increase the ranks of dues-paying union members. When the next election rolls around, that will fund more campaign contributions to Democrats and more union help on Election Day. Unionizing America is the strategy to secure a permanent Democratic majority, the rights of rank-and-file workers be damned.
Gig-economy independent contractors, such as Uber drivers, also lose their freedom under Biden’s plan. It forces them to be “employees” and therefore ripe for unionization. A similar plan imposed by California DeAddressing the nation last week, Biden boasted he’ll protect labor’s right to organize. News flash: It doesn’t need protecting. Only 10.8 percent of American workers are unionized because most workers don’t want to share their paycheck with union bosses. In the private sector, it’s even smaller, a minuscule 6 percent. When a union tried to organize Amazon warehouse employees in Bessemer, Ala., last month, Biden blasted out a video on social media supporting the union drive. But the warehouse workers voted against unionizing.mocrats evoked popular outrage and had to be revoked. Unfazed, Biden’s pushing ahead on a national scale.
