I suppose that it should come as no surprise that President Obama’s Stimulus Plan, the first of his attempts at a new Reconstruction of America would utilize the Union Army to further his agenda. Of course, this time it won’t be the Blue Bellies and it’s not just the South being ground under a POTUS’ jackboots. Obama’s Union Army is made up of the federally subsidized labor Unions – aka Soviets.
Just as the Union enacted a punitive regime in the South, so too has President Obama enacted a punitive regime across all of America. That is the Hope and Change he threatened.
It seems that New Hampshire won’t be receiving very much from Obama and his Liberals’ “Stimulus” plan. This is because funds for construction projects from this abomination and act of Generational Theft can only be distributed to union projects. Free and freedom-loving Americans need not apply.
The Administration’s decision to discriminate against successful and independent construction firms simply because New Hampshire employees choose to work in a union-free workplace and not bow down to the demands of big labor is extremely unfair to our state. The request for bids issued by the Department of Labor requires that contractors employ a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) and requests they provide proof of completion of three prior PLA projects. However, under these conditions there is not a single firm in our State that would be eligible to bid on this multimillion dollar construction project. In a time of economic hardship, it is simply absurd to discriminate against local contractors and construction workers for the benefit of national labor unions.
To educate the masses, a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) is is when the government awards contracts for public construction projects exclusively and solely to unionized firms. A Project Labor Agreement (PLA) mandates that all contractors, whether or not they are unionized, to subjugate themselves and their employees to unionization in order to work on a government-funded construction project. This is done by including a union collective bargaining agreement in a public construction project’s bid specifications. In order to receive a contract, a contractor must sign the agreement and submit itself and its employees to union control.
Worse but not surprisingly, President Obama and his Liberals aren’t satisfied with “merely” requiring that only workers’ soviets get Stimulus funds; they are mandating that any company or contractor must have a history of submission by mandating that these American companies must have proof of having knuckled under to the unions at least three (3) times in the past.
Since only 8.7% of New Hampshire’s construction workforce has voluntarily surrendered their right to work, this means that essentially no New Hampshire building firm can bid on any of the Stimulus-funded construction projects.
Hope an Change? Yeah; hope for Obama’s soviet army, and change as expressed by a 2nd Reconstruction of America – this time into something recognizably foreign, failed, and evil.
Of course, historically only approximately 15% of construction trades workers in all of America were union members or working under union-coerced contracts. Since there are approximately 9.6 million construction trades workers in the US, 1.9 million of which are self-employed, only 1.44 million – likely none of the self-employed – could benefit from the Stimulus-funded projects.
This explains why so little of Obama and his Liberals’ Stimulus monies have been spent to date. They have to wait until the “negotiators” from the various unions / soviets can convince Americans to enlist. It takes time – and possibly a carefully managed increase in unemployment rates – in order to coerce Americans to surrender their values and freedoms in order to feed, cloth, and house their children.
Obama’s Union Army – if you’re an American construction trades worker, contractor, or employer, you’ll see them coming to a job site near you…to take projects and wages that could have fed American families.
