Big Labor’s Last Stand

RealClearPolitics.com – Sun Feb 27, 1:00 am ET The term “big labor” is becoming a vestige of a bygone era. Union ranks have not been this thin for 75 years, when the Wagner Act catalyzed the modern labor movement. Labor is today defending its last bulwark, civil service unions. Napoleon once said that an army marches on its stomach. Today’s union battle ultimately concerns how unions feed, or fund, their army–that is, what remains of it. Labor is standing before the breach.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, ruler since 1970, has tried to mollify demonstrators–who are demanding more jobs–by hiring 50,000 new government employees and offering $390 a month in unemployment insurance.

  • How the Libyan Revolution Could Play Out

    The Atlantic Wire – 1 hr 56 mins ago

    WASHINGTON, DC – The latest reports from Libya suggest that the country’s ruler, Muammar Qaddafi, is striking back violently against protesters in western cities near the capital of Tripoli, as military defections continue (even Qaddafi’s nurse has left him) and international pressure on Qaddafi mounts. On Monday, opposition forces shot down a military aircraft and captured the crew as the government sought to wrest back control of Misrata, the country’s third-largest city. The U.N. Security Council, meanwhile, has agreed to sanctions on Qaddafi and other Libyan authorities, imposed an arms embargo, and frozen Libyan assets, while NATO allies consider instituting a no-fly zone over Libya and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the Obama administration is ready to offer assistance to rebel groups.

  • Budget Bickering Continues After Deal to Stall Shutdown

    The Atlantic Wire – 2 hrs 22 mins ago

    WASHINGTON, DC – The House will begin debating today a deal that would prevent a shutdown of the government for an extra two weeks. If Republicans and Democrats can’t agree by Friday, many federal employees will be furloughed March 5. But the short-term deal could make a long-term one more difficult, The Wall Street Journal’s Naftali Bendavid reports. That’s because Republicans are only proposing spending cuts the Democrats feel they can live with in the two-week settlement. But the GOP also wants much broader cuts in funding the government till September 30, the end of the fiscal year and, as Bendavid puts it, going only for the “palatable” cuts in the two-week affair “will make it more difficult to reach a bipartisan agreement on additional cuts when the two sides begin negotiations on a spending measure to fund the government until Sept. 30.” Full Story »
