    Default Analysis: How Obama paved the way on key labor issues

    Yes, he has accomplished some good things for labor. As much as I wanted? No but he has not been a complete loss as some like to say.

    The presidentís executive actions are important because they directly improve the lives of Americans working for federal contractors and establish a model for Congress to follow in improving wages and employment conditions for all working Americans. And just as Obamaís executive orders for federal contract workers built on a long history of ensuring our tax dollars provide decent jobs with fair hiring, the next president will have the opportunity to build on Obamaís efforts.
    The gains achieved by Washington-area contract employees who walked out on strike three years ago are nothing short of amazing: helping to move the president of the United States to act, not once but with a string of executive orders that not only improved their own jobs but raised standards for contract workers across the country. At the same time, the courage of striking contract workers contributed to an atmosphere where working people in all sectors of the economy were emboldened to speak out for better pay and working conditions. Now itís up to the next Congress and the next president to heed their voices and take the next steps toward becoming a nation that truly invests in good jobs.

    And I would have to disagree for the same reasons I have posted over and over again on this site.

    They all lie and the people fall for it. I can't think of one that hasn't.

    How true.
    I know we need to change how the government works, but the people in control won't allow that change.
    Some people will believe some things some of the time.
    We will all never agree on the right direction.

    I feel the direction should include those of us that were once an important part of society. The middle class, blue collar worker. As it stands now, we don't have a voice. The voice we do exercise is merely a whimper as Corporate America beats the last breath from us.

    Maybe that is why Trump is doing so well. ONE.. He doesn't do well with the so called establishment of Washington.. TWO.. He sees the problems of Washington.. THREE. He relates well with the middle class.. FOUR.. He can't do any worse than what we have now or what The Democratic party has to offer..

    The "establishment" is working feverishly on screwing "the Donald." Ryan is his nemesis now and has the full support of those that run the show. The world is watching this circus. It truly is embarrassing.
