    Default Raging leftist Joe Biden supports capital over workers

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/economy...ossible-strike

    Railroad unions on Tuesday decried President Joe Biden’s call for Congress to intervene in their contract dispute, saying it undercuts their efforts to address workers’ quality of life concerns, but businesses stressed that it is crucial to avoid a strike next week that would devastate the economy.

    Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that lawmakers will be asked to vote this week to impose the terms of the deals the 12 unions agreed to before an original strike deadline in September, even though four of those unions representing more than half of the 115,000 rail workers rejected them. Eight other unions ratified the five-year deals that include 24% raises and $5,000 in bonuses.

    Biden said he reluctantly agreed that it would be best to override the union votes because the potential damage to the economy would be too great.

    “Congress I think has to act to prevent it,” Biden said Tuesday. “It’s not an easy call but I think we have to do it. The economy’s at risk.”

    Unions and worker groups have been pushing to improve the demanding schedules they say make it hard for workers to ever take a day off and persuade railroads to add paid sick time. They have threatened to strike if new agreements can’t be reached before a Dec. 9 deadline.
    is socialist Joe Biden correct in trying to intervene in this dispute between the unionized railroad workers and the rail companies, apparently taking the side of capital?

    Since probably over 90% of them voted straight ticket Democrat last election and will do so again and again, then yes, they should get exactly what they voted for.

    It's funny.

    If the union members are serious, they will just walk off.

    Your world Outlook is so skewed it's straight up entertaining to me.

    Must be wild to tie your entire identity to a political belief.

    I’m glad I can bring some entertainment to what must be an otherwise miserable life for you. No need to thank me.

    National security involves keeping transportation infrastructure moving, or at least the law was written that way. Good for Biden for intervening.

    Is "Plantation" Joe going to put the railroad workers back in chains if the workers walk off the job?

    Wow. The House already passed the bill to force the workers to accept the contract. Democrats know how to get shit done, as long as it entails screwing over their biggest and most loyal base.

    Why would you expect any different from the party who's foundation is forced labor?

    On a positive note, maybe we will get some good music out of our new slave force.
