[quote:Anonymous Coward 18742900:MV8yMDExODk2XzMzODA4OTM4X0IxOTk0RUIy] [quote:Double O Zero:MV8yMDExODk2XzMzODA4MzgxXzI2MjZBQTBC] [b]The only unions Obama really helps are the government worker unions like AFSCME and SEIU and their ilk.[/b] I'm a Teamster, and I don't see anyone in the skilled trade unions benefiting from what he's doing. I live in SW PA and I'll tell you there are many Democrats who are not voting for him. In the primary, in my area, some counties had as many as 40% of the people who were registered Democrat who did not pull the lever for Obama. That's astounding, and if even half those votes go to Romney, PA itself might be in play. In 2008, I received probably 5 flyers from Obama and none from McCain. This cycle, I've received 4 from Romney and none from Obama, so there's a ground game gap also. On the ground, there have been people going to large minority neighborhoods trying to register people, but I've heard from several Democratic committee people that no one is interested in registering. In 2008, Obama had young people and minorities voting for him in droves. While I doubt they're jumping to Romney, I do think they'll be staying home here and in other places. The projections based on the turn out model from that time will be dead wrong. [/quote] BINGO! I am in SE PA (Phila), and construction is in the toilet and has been for awhile. Layoffs are becoming more and more common, and its feast and famine work. Luck to land a gig every couple months. Heres my opinion...I believe the big push against "unions" really isnt the trade unions, but the Public Sector unions as mentioned above. These snakes skim tax payer dollars from the pay and pensions of these supposed "public servants", and then launder it right back to the Democrats. They utilize government facilities to campaign and even produce campaign literature for Democrat candidates. I saw this for myself when I was doing a gig in Trenton in a State building back in 2008. And what exactly has expanded in this economy? Why the government employees...or at least those who will tow the line. [/quote]
I am a Union Boilermaker. I played the party line last election.
After a very long summer low in work, i finally got called for a job. I decided this morning on the drive in, i would not bring up politics. unlike here ,i have to see these guys every day for the next few months.
I didn't need to bring it up, it was the talk of the day. 15 men and not one for Obama.
All had watched the debate and the statement by Romney about his love of coal won every man. I was Surprised and shocked. We work on power plants and Obama's war on coal has already affected our lives !!
Not one, No one "on the fence" not one.
I won't be on here as much for awhile ( long drive , many hours) but I'll keep you posted.
The Coal Mining Union for the first time has not endorsed the Democrats. When Men are working and providing for their family's honestly a lot don't vote cause their working. Not This Time !!!! Just like me their mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.
