Vice President Biden Says All The Right Things—We Must Fight For Ourselves As Working People

Above is a picture of Vice President Joe Biden.

I took this picture on Labor Day at the Cincinnati AFL-CIO picnic.

Vice President Biden spoke in the most forceful terms.

He said that everyday working people were in a fight for “existence” against our extreme right-wing adversaries.

He said that organized labor was one the few things keeping the “barbarians from the gate”  in terms of the rights workers to collectively organize, and in protecting the futures of all American working people.

He said that he was about to be “unleashed” to make more clear the differences between the Tea Party/Republican Party  and a more hopeful agenda that values everyday working people.

The Vice President talked a good game. He said all the right things.

Howver, I think the verdict is still out on to what extent the Obama-Biden administration will really fight for working people.

More to the point, the verdict is still out as to what extent working people will fight for themselves as wages, benefits and access to good jobs are all under attack.
