Service unions have withdrawn from AFL CIO. Majority of union members in AFL CIO are now Public Government Workers paid by
the taxpayers. Taxpayers are their employer and they should have never been part of the AFL CIO.
The Private Sector Production Workers represent only 15% (or even less ) of the total now - Yet, the Free Traders still
claim that this segment caused many of our economic problems.
NEA teachers union, AFL-CIO forge alliance-
NEA now joins with its rival the American Federation of Teachers under the umbrella of the AFL-CIO. This means the AFL-CIO
is now a public sector union and not a industrial private sector one. The NEA adds 2.7 million teachers to the 9 million AFL-CIO
Still unions like the AFL-CIO are challenged as if they were still made up of production workes in the private sector.
On top of this, some public workers call for support because they say they pay the taxes. They ignore the fact that the private
sector are the ones who pay the taxes to support their incomes in the first place. And those jobs are being exported abroad.
Who will be left to pay for the support of the public workers?

Teddy Roosevelt said the major threat to America are corrupt politicians tied to corrupt businesses.
Franklin Roosevelt said economic diseases are highly communicable.
Pope John Paul said workers are not tools of Capitalism.
(Nor, are they tools of state run economies like in China and other totalitarian nations.)
Henry Ford said workers should be partners in business.
Rerum Novarum says it is shameful to use men as things for gain.
The main commodities of Free Trade are workers not products. Free Trade degrades human dignity. Workers are put on a world
trading block to compete down to the lowest common denominators of wage slave and even child labor. Production is made mobile
ready to move again and again if workers protest too much for a living wage.
