  •  It wasn't just unions (8+ / 0-)

    It's working people and the middle class that Ed also focuses on and he was the only one on prime time who had those issues front and center.  I subscribe to his podcast ($25/year) which he has kept at less than half the rate ($59) of other radio hosts in order to keep it affordable to workers.

    Unions, by their very nature, make everyones lives better.  They were the big supporters of Medicare in 1965, the Voting Rights Act, and other progressive legislation that society benefits from.  Big time supporters of increasing the minimum wage, union concern about the social safety net reflects their care for getting people out of poverty.

    I won't cross a picket line either.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
