Where does Barack Obama stand on Labor?

This is a question that I can answer with confidence! Barack Obama is a very pro-labor politician. The roots of his career in politics stem from many years of community activism. He has a genuine understanding of what it means to "struggle". Anyone involved with community activism knows immediately what I mean. When you are out there everyday pounding away on strange doors in strange neighborhoods, pushing for people to open their doors and get involved with a collective voice to make… Continue

Good evening Voice of the Voiceless. I commented on your post: American Culture... Consumerism. I read your profile and see that you also are involved with non-profit organizations and you are a strong proponent of workers rights, glad to see you joined the debate.

My writing style can get a bit out of hand as I tend to speak about serious matters sometimes in a way that if not carefully articulated can become too abstract and universal. If I write late at night, the message becomes sloppy and a bit silly;however the issues that I share with your postings are very serious and real.

I have to be quite focued and not allow the meaning to get lost or misconstrued. As in the "illusion of freedom" and such as a catalyst to motivate [exploit] the worker.. If I do not write causiously and focused, I lose the meaning. Many of the dynamics of which I speak have evolved over time in myriad ways, familiarly, economically, politically, class, division of labor, culturally and so on.

If I pose something too sporadically without reasonable justification the important dynamics become lost.

I am encouraged by your posts and also care about the "voiceless."

I hope that as the economy shifts, labor will take on a very strong position and the message coming out of labor be such that most of us will realize we are in the same class and need to unite.

Look forward to your posts, and debates.

Just wanted to thank you for being such a new vocal member. Curious about what you think the future of labor will be under President Obama.
