Just before Labor Day weekend, the Department of Labor released this video. It is a union promotional ad. It urges members of America’s workforce to speak up, to organize. It declares that the only way to improve our country’s workplace conditions is to increase union membership. It also begins with some questionable premises…

The duty of the Department of Labor, according to their own definition, is to administer and enforce the more than 180 federal labor laws voted on and enacted by the people – of which collective bargaining is one.

The DOL should protect the right of American people to organize should they so choose. However the majority of working Americans do not want to go through a third party to deal with workplace issues.
