There’s a huge gap between the traditional unions which represent workers, the public sector unions, which are the result of corrupt sweetheart deals with politicians, and the health care unions. The building unions actually work, the public sector unions don’t work, and the health care unions are just radical lefties and illegal aliens campaigning for government health care. Not much is going to happen with municipal unions, except the inevitable detonation of pension bombs that will clear away the sweetheart deals, and the health care unions are Bernie Sanders territory, but the trade unions are Trump territory. Despite the best efforts of Democrats.
Joe Biden has pitched himself to voters as a “union man,” a son of Scranton, Pa., who respects the dignity of work and will defend organized labor if he wins the White House. To rank-and-file members in some unions, especially the building trades, it doesn’t matter. They’re still firmly in Donald Trump’s camp.
Biden’s working man shtick seems solid to D.C. lefties who don’t work for a living, but like to listen to songs about union protests. It falls flat in the real world.
