On this episode Thomas Holmes and Pamela Holmes-Morton discuss the decline of unions. Pam is the Secretary of a large union in Northern California.Earlier this year reporters stated that the share of America’s workforce that’s unionized hit a 97-year low. A mere 11.3% of workers now belong to a union, and a great chunk of those are in the shrinking public sector. In the private sector, unionization fell to an abysmal 6.6%, down from a peak of 35% during the 1950s.

When President Obama pushed his health care overhaul plan through Congress, he counted labor unions among his strongest supporters. But some unions leaders have grown frustrated and angry about what they say are unexpected consequences of the new law -- problems that they say could jeopardize the health benefits offered to millions of their members. The issue could create a political headache next year for Democrats facing re-election if disgruntled union members believe the Obama administration and Congress aren't working to fix the problem. "It makes an untruth out of what the president said, that if you like your insurance, you could keep it," said Joe Hansen, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. "That is not going to be true for millions of workers now."
I did NO TRUTH, NO JUSTICE before I decided to call my efforts at changing mindsets a Civil Rebellion. In this show My goal is discussing the importance of Unions in balancing the powers of industry and government, but also pointing out the Responsibilities of union leadership AND the members at realizing and doing something about their misuse and abuse of THEIR powers.
Today this show will hit on a few topics. Of course #TrayvonMartin and #GeorgeZimmerman are still in the news. New developments as well with the Big Unions not liking certain provisions in Obama Care. This and more today on #TheEarlHallShow

The bill debate for HR 1120 will be today at 11:30AM ET. The GOP is strongly against the National Labor Relations Board. Follow the bill debate America. This bill is about working Americans. The GOP has pieced together material they feel will end labor unions in the workplace. Labor unions are the closest thing working Americans have to lobbyist. American workers need a voice just as CEO's of America and foreign companies operating in America has VOICES, like ALEC. OWS is the voice of the people and consequently they are villainized by corporate money mouths. We the people need jobs. We the people need better paying jobs. We the people need to be able to have a voice in our work environment. We the people need to keep the accomplishments we have made over the decades, thanks to unions being our voices with corporate representatives. Job uncertainty is nothing but a GOP hoax to justify continued outsourcing of USA jobs, while not hiring American workers. Be sure your representative stands against HR-1120 or you just may be standing in a line that used to be the unemployment line. For you do know, the GOP have plans in the making to end unemployment benefits as we know it.
