Video: Mob boss or union boss?

Meet the new union boss … same as the old union boss, according to the Workforce Fairness Institute, which opposes card-check legislation. Richard Trumka just took the reins at the AFL-CIO despite a somewhat checkered past.  As WFI points out, Trumka has been under investigation for money laundering with the Teamsters, election fraud, and $50,000 in illegal campaign contributions.  All of this has WFI wondering in a snarky video if people can tell between Trumka and mob bosses from fiction and history:

The AFL-CIO has picked someone they believe represents exactly who they are and what they endorse.  People can look at Trumka’s record and determine whether they feel safe in union organizing elections with a union boss like Trumka standing between them and a secret ballot.  It’s not exactly a comforting thought.
