Employees Push Back Against SEIU’s Persuasion of Power
By Dave Bego
Emboldened by President Obama and his recent recess appointments to the Rogue NLRB, the SEIU appears to be stepping up its patented Persuasion of Power, which projected through its notorious Corporate Campaigns is vividly chronicled in my new book, The Devil at Our Doorstep.
