With their campaign to organize foreign auto plants seemingly in the toilet, UAW President Bob King is embarking on a new task – creating “a movement for social justice”.
The goal of the movement will be to wrest control of America from King’s foes, ”right-wing Republicans” and “one-percenters”. King made the speech at a gathering for UAW Local 651 while commemorating the anniversary of the 1937 Sit Down Strike (or clutching onto the last instance of the UAW being relevant to American society).
King urged the UAW and others to target General Electric, with the Detroit News reporting on this delightful scene
“It is morally wrong — it is absolutely wrong — that they make billions and billions and billions of dollars and pay not a single penny in taxes,” King said, his veins bulging as his voice grew hoarse from shouting. “Enough is enough. We’re the 99 percent who want 100 percent fairness for everyone.”
What do you say B&B? Is it time for a UAW Death Watch? With the UAW’s attempts to unionize in the South seemingly going down the toilet, a sequence of embarrassing publicity stunts and a dwindling base to collect union dues from, it might be the beginning of the end for America’s most annoying labor union.
