    Default Labor Unions Call For 'Second Bill Of Rights,' Encourage 'Politicians Of Both Stripes

    Harkening back to the “Economic Bill of Rights” outlined by Franklin Roosevelt in a 1944 speech, the Second Bill of Rights calls for a right to full employment, a living wage, participation in the electoral process, the right to organize and collectively bargain, the right to a quality education and the right to decent social services.

    "We'll be asking all elected officials, all Americans, to sign their name in support of those values and make it the guidepost of national economic and social policy going forward. This is not primarily about electoral politics," Ed Hill, president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), told the crowd. "Today, we create a roar of protest over the status quo and a clear demand for a new day."

    Doesn't this quote from the link above say it all.

    Harkening back to the “Economic Bill of Rights” outlined by Franklin Roosevelt in a 1944 speech, the Second Bill of Rights calls for a right to full employment, a living wage, participation in the electoral process, the right to organize and collectively bargain, the right to a quality education and the right to decent social services.
