Bernie Sanders Campaign Workers Turn into Union Goons

Published

on

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.
