    Default Trumpís New Labor Prosecutor Could Undo Obama-Era Union Wins In A Big Way

    Considering the Trump administration's track record, I am 100% sure this is going to happen.

    President Donald Trumpís pick for general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is positioned to roll back eight years of progressive labor union regulation under former President Barack Obama, The Washington Free Beacon reports.

    The NLRB came under GOP control for the first time in a decade last month. With the Nov. 8 confirmation of management-side attorney Peter Robb as general counsel, the NLRB is set to issue rulings that reverse the pro-big labor decisions of Obama General Counsel Richard Griffin, one of the most progressive top labor prosecutors in recent history.
    The general counsel of the NLRB has nearly unlimited authority to set the agenda for the organization. The lead prosecutor selects the complaints and cases that come before the counsel.

    It was more important to drain the swamp ( Flynn, Priebus, Price, Bannon, Gorka, Scaramucci, Manafort, Spicer ) then to have fair and equal protections for all.
    Labor has no rights in this administration. Big business and corporate America shall rule the world, from the oval office.

    The sky is falling again and again and again..

    Flynn ?? He was caught lying to the Vice President and Trump let him go.. Did you want Trump to keep him??

    Priebus?? Couldn't get the job done.. Maybe part of the swamp ??

    Price?? Got caught using private aircraft .. Nothing that the Obama administration didn't do but IMO Trump wouldn't put up with it and let him resign..

    Bannon?? He is fighting for Trump against the republican elite.. The swamp?? Oh that's right as many on the "LEFT" call him a white supremacist..

    Gorka?? Like bannon is supporting Trump from the outside..

    Scaramucci?? Opened his mouth too quickly.. Went back to the sidelines..

    Manafort?? Was on the campaign for a short time and got done what he was hired for.. Got caught up in the Trump/Russia collusion and well maybe a lunch mate of Bernie Madoff sooner than later..But the question in the future how many Democrats he will pull down with him.. The Podesta Group is just the start..

    Spicer?? Was an "IT" guy at the RNC.. Couldn't cut the mustard as the press secretary..

    As far as this guy as nominated I do believe it is not in the interest of labor.. I also sent an e'mail to both my senators in PA..

    The stars are all lining up to crush Unionized labor it seems. We've been charting corporate America's gains on these boards.

    The people picked, and used by Trump and his campaign reflect Trump's judgement and character.

    As for the picks to head the NLRB, once again it shows Trump's distaste for organized labor or the middle class in general.
    Everything and every person picked has been tilted towards business and corporate Americas favor.

    Well if we are going to ask ourselves when the downfall of the middle class began, then lets step back a few decades to the Reagan years.
    At least with Obama we had a mild recovery of the losses most suffered in their 401K and IRA accounts after the republican led economics disaster called the Bush years.
    Jobs increased, uninsured people had access to medical coverage and during his administration he got Osama bin Laden.

    Then Trump came along with his bully style of politics, making fun of people, chiding people with disabilities and making claims he has yet to fulfill.
