It’s time for American laborers to support Donald Trump and the GOP.
Recently, Bradley Blakeman published an opinion article for Fox News that called for labor unions to support republicans.
However, as we move closer to the 2020 presidential election, it’s important that laborers as individuals, not as an interest group, realize that it’s Donald Trump, not the Democrats, who will preserve their liberties.
Back in 2018, Trump negotiated the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. USMCA’s key objective is to protect American workers. It prohibits the importation of goods produced by forced labor and protects laborers’ rights abroad. It also stipulates that 40 to 45 percent of automobile parts be produced by workers earning at least $16 per hour.
Those key provisions are a win for American laborers.
The restriction on imported goods will contribute towards the U.S. becoming less reliant on foreign goods and highlight the quality of American-made products. The quota on automobile parts will protect American jobs in the auto industry by preventing auto companies from outsourcing their entire labor forces.
The USMCA is currently being blocked by the democrat-controlled House.
But it’s nevertheless an example of the emphasis Trump places on the liberties of individual American workers.
On his way to the presidency, Trump made clear that he wasn’t beholden to any interest groups looking to further their own causes through politics. The same can’t be said about the Socialist-Democratic challenger, Bernie Sanders.
Sanders has advocated for the disposal of “right-to-work” laws. With “right-to-work” laws, American workers are given the right not to join a union.
It is stated that “right-to-work” laws:
“affirms the right of every American to work for a living without being compelled to belong to a union…”
“Compulsory unionism in any form…is a contradiction of…the fundamental human right of freedom…”
“Right-to-work” laws prevent union groups from forcing individuals to become members. This weakens the bargaining power of unions and thus makes them less powerful.
Individual workers’ freedom is what ultimately matters, not the clout of a union or any interest group.
Getting rid of “right-to-work” laws would benefit unions as an interest group and not individual American workers.
No doubt Sanders cares more about the interest group that could get him elected and less about the individual American workers who may or may not want to be union members.
Sanders, the so-called “democratic socialist” is saying that the rights of laborers should be controlled by an interest group and not by the individuals they represent.
Right to work laws give laborers the freedom to choose not to join a union
Comrade Sanders is seeking to take away that freedom.
Sanders and his fellow Democrats are still forgetting about the American worker.
Trump negotiated the USMCA because it protects American workers from globalization. Republicans champion the “right-to-work” laws because it upholds the principle of individual liberty that America was founded upon.
It’s time for American workers as free individuals to throw their full support behind Trump and the Party of Lincoln.
