Defeating Trump: will unions be the answer?

Ok, we have a serious situation. Our push-back against Trump appears to be doomed to fail. Frankly, not a lot of people are up in arms about things like “transgender rights”; climate change is too long term for people to be very passionate about (though it is very important..extremely important..but to many rates below what an NFL player does during the National Anthem).

And I think that minority voter turnout during 2008-2012 and President Obama’s skill papered over some serious issues with the Democratic Party.

And please, forget about Sanders. Those who switched from Obama to Trump aren’t that big on, say, the “minimum wage” as many earn well above that; the goal is a great job with benefits.

But employers aren’t going to just provide those out of the goodness of their hearts. Right now, things are very tilted toward the employers. Workers should organize to counter that. It is all about leverage.
