Glenn played some shocking audio on radio today where Union boss Trumka admitted that raising wages for workers was not his main goal as a union leader. Rather, his top priority was using union money to build a “permanent” progressive structure in order to effect social change.
“We're the last line of defense out there. I mean, I got into the labor movement not because I wanted to negotiate wages. I got into the labor movement because I saw it as a vehicle to do massive social change to include lots of people. That's why I got into the labor movement… In our central councils to reach out and start building permanent coalitions with young workers groups, with student groups, with religious groups, anybody that's a progressive group to bring them in, actually make them part of the structure so that we have representatives on our executive boards now.”
For Glenn, this was just another validation of what he has been saying for months. Progressives are less concerned about helping people, but more concerned with fundamentally transforming America. Glenn said, “They're building structure,” adding, “When somebody builds permanent structure, they know exactly what Woodrow Wilson knew when they started building it back then. You just build it piece by piece and you'll never get rid of it. So, I can leave, Obama can leave, you know, they can have a new union leader, whatever, but it's permanent structure. You'll not be able to change it.”
