Richard Trumka: We're Not Giving Up On Daycare Unionization

On June 30, the Supreme Court ruled in Harris v. Quinn that daycare providers can't be forced to unionize because they are not state workers. We wanted to get the pro-union perspective, so we've invited President of The AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka to tell us his thoughts:

As you would suspect, we are very disappointed in the Supreme Court's decision. We believe that every American worker has the right to have a portion of their paycheck taken by their union boss against their will, and sent to The Democrats.

We are planning our next move. We may have to engage in some good, old-fashioned thuggery and intimidation. Some of my associates were considering beating Chief Justice Robert's head in with a baseball bat, but we will probably form picket lines around daycare centers all over the country instead.

I have the feeling that daycare centers will become very loud places very soon. Nap time might become a thing of the past. We are readying some pre-printed protest signs and thinking up some new protest chants. When those little kids start crying and freaking out, maybe the parasites who refuse to unionize will change their mind.

As soon as we take over all the daycare centers in America, we will force even self-employed daycare entrepreneurs to pay job ransom. We're not taking this laying down.

Then, we unionize the babysitters.
