Mother Jones' Kevin Drum is not Buying AFL-CIO Line
The AFL-CIO issued a press release this afternoon trying to deflect accusations that it is trying to kill immigration reform by claiming that it's really the Chamber that is to blame. But when Mother Jones, the far left newsmagazine isn't buying it, you know it's time to surrender.
For those not familiar with the AFL-CIO's unreasonable demand, they are pushing to require employers have to pay guest workers far more than the wages they pay similarly employed American workers. The Chamber is just requesting that they be required to pay the same. Who can blame the Chamber for not accepting this rotten deal? This, on top of the AFL-CIO's outrageous demands on limiting the size of the program to barely enough to cover the needs of one state, much less the whole country, and to only cover completely unskilled workers, means one thing - the AFL-CIO does not like immigrants. Plain and simple. They should at least be honest about it. Their members who are posting in the comments section of their web pages don't seem to have a problem admitting it.
