Bernie Sanders 2020 will be the first presidential campaign in history to have a unionized workforce.
On March 15, 2019, the Sanders campaign announced that “a majority of the campaign’s bargaining unit employees designated the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 to represent them as their exclusive bargaining representative.”
Faiz Shakir, Sanders’ campaign manager, stated in an email that “Bernie Sanders is the most pro-union candidate in the field, he’ll be the most pro-union president in the White House and we’re honored that his campaign will be the first to have a unionized workforce.”
Mark P. Federici, president of United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 400, announced in an email, “We expect this will mean pay parity and transparency on the campaign, with no gender bias or harassment, and equal treatment for every worker, whether they’re in Washington, D.C., Iowa, New Hampshire or anywhere else.”
If there is anyone to flaunt his leftist views, it’s Bernie Sanders. Forced unionization is definitely one of his calling cards.
Once serving as a check against corporate abuse, modern-day labor unions have morphed into well-connected political mafias that seek to extract as much political and economic power as possible at the expense of non-unionized workers. The National Right to Work Committee estimates that there are more than 10 million workers who are forced to pay union dues.
The private sector is not alone. Public-sector unions have become power players in solidly blue states. These unions are the epitome of coercion, as they hold taxpayers hostage to gain cushy pension benefits at their expense.
This is part and parcel of Sanders’ agenda, which openly calls for more government control over people’s lives. In fact, Sanders’ campaign has normalized discussions about socialism throughout American political discourse. This normalization of socialism is even occurring when countries in our hemisphere like Venezuela are collapsing because of socialism.
Let’s give Sanders some credit. He’s not only open about his socialist beliefs, but is also putting them into practice by unionizing his foot soldiers. This is just a sneak preview of what Sanders has in store for the rest of the American economy should he win the presidency —compulsory unionism.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
