Labor Delivered, But What Will It Get In Return?
Posted On: Nov 12, 2012

Nov. 9, 2012 | This past Election Day, labor unions achieved some impressive accomplishments. In addition to helping to re-elect President Obama, they also provided crucial support for victorious candidates and scored major successes in ballot initiatives throughout the country.

As The Nation's Josh Eidelson has pointed out, the results of labor's efforts in the 2008 election have been mixed: "The president passed labor-backed healthcare and banking reforms, but barely offered lip service to the anti-union-busting Employee Free Choice Act…" So what will labor ask for this time around, and what can it expect?
