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."
Today, we going to examine the ongoing battle between Public Labor Unions and the Republican Governors in the Midwest United States from Wisconisn, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. What will be the future of collective bargaining? What role does the public safety/privative labor union movement fit in this battle? What will happen if a TEA Party or GOP Candidate wins the Governor's office in the Commonwealth of Kentucky? Our featured guest is from the American Legion in Nevada conversating for Patriotic Freedom Rides on Armed Forces Day on May 21st.
In the 1st hour, David Bego joins Joe to how over the past four decades, Big Labor has continued to see its membership shrink drastically as its leaders use the same failed tactics involving forced unionism.The argument that most workers are better off without unions today is supported by the facts.
In the 2nd hour, David Bego wraps up the union argument. Then Joe covers those stories we all love to hear that are so hard to believe. Tune in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
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.

Civil Chat with Lee looks at what's trending and continues to look at selected Iowa Free Summit potential republican presidential candidates. Today will conclude with the FULL segment (aside form trending events) on the political success and failures of Scott Walker. Did he deliver on the 250,000 new jobs he said he'd create in his first term. Why does Walker want to dismantle public education and fill Wisconsin with charter schools. Why is Walker so against unions and collective bargaining. Why is Wisconsin at the top of the US in cutting school funding?
Charles Lenchner is a co-founder of Ready for Warren and a consultant for labor, political and nonprofit organizations, tweets as @clenchner. We will discuss the recent breaks in one of the most corrupt state houses in the land, Albany NY, where long-standing power magnate Sheldon Silver has been charged with bribery, following the investigations of the Moreland commission.Set up by the Governor Cuomo, the Commission's operations were halted by the governer when his staff was brought under scrutiny. NYT on Silver
SIlver is a Democrat who has policy preferences that line up well with most progressives. How does a progressive, or a liberal, line up when there is corruption in the ranks?
We'll also talk about Zephyr Teachout , Paul Newell (who primaried Silver last election) and Elizabeth Warren as possible remedies to this conundrum.
My Guest this Thursday, February 29th at 3 p.m. PST on MetalSmith BenchTalk is David Geller, the owner of Jewelry Artisans, Inc. in Atlanta Georgia.
About: David’s training started as a 10-year-old during the summers in his father’s jewelry wholesale manufacturing company. At the age of 16, David received a car for the sole purpose of coming to work after school.
The family has traced their roots back 14 generations in the jewelry field, going back through New York, Odessa Russia, Spain, France and England. In 1972 David worked for Neiman Marcus when they opened up in Atlanta as a jeweler and then started Jewelry Artisans, as a trade shop in 1974. Within a few short years, the company dropped the trade accounts, dealing full time with the retail end of the business. In 1999 Jewelry Artisans performed over 8800 job envelopes doing over 1.8 million in sales, with half of that coming from the bench.
Over the years, David developed a system of paying his jewelers on a commission basis, giving them the ability to make a very good living and assuring the store profits of about four times on their labor. The 300 page price book that was developed for his store has quickly become the “repair bible” for over 2000 stores across the USA, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and Guam.
David speaks to state jewelers organizations, at trade shows , and has three yearly all day seminars for the complete training of jewelers on how to price repairs and custom work.

1st HOUR: Law and Disorder Radio is a weekly, independent radio program airing on several stations across the United States and broadcasting on the web. Law and Disorder gives listeners access to rare legal perspectives on issues concerning civil liberties, privacy, right to dissent and the horrendous practices of torture exercised by the US government. This program examines the political forces and legislation that are moving the United States into a police state.
Program Summary: 29 Jan. 2015
The NYPD police officer union’s outrageous assertion that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio had “blood on his hands” in the murder of two NYPD officers, is consistent with the reactionary role of police unions across the country. They came to prominence in the wake of the civil rights movement. Police unions have played a powerful role in resisting all manner police reforms and in defending police officers no matter how outrageous and racist their actions. Attorney Flint Taylor brought an analysis of police unions playing a major role in defending cops throughout the last few decades in his article Blood On Their Hands: The Racist History of Police Unions.
