On Labor Day the it seems reasonable to do some research on recent history and on current plans within the unions.
So does Michelle Malkin, who says today:: 
My syndicated column today takes on the rise of President Obama’s best new Big Labor buddy, Richard Trumka â€” whose looming presence on the political scene I first flagged in April . As we noted last week, he’s got a combined $88 million war chest with his labor alliance and a Marxist get-out-the-vote force  behind him. When they are through, they’ll make the SEIU Purple Army’s political expenditures  (and its thuggery ) look like a pittance.
She also goes so far as to post her most recent Creators Syndicate column Big Labor’s legacy of violence .
All Americans who like freedom should be reading this and should be reacting to it. Labor unions are not about freedom. Labor unions are about force. And they are not a force for good. The fact that labor unions have attached themselves to Obama should be your first clue. A look into the recent history of labor unions, however, should cinch the deal.
