RUSH: Open Line Friday, Kristin in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Glad to have you on the program.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Happy Friday.
RUSH: The same to you. Thanks very much.
CALLER: Thanks. I was calling. I recently read that the SEIU is trying to organize -- or trying to unionize -- self-employed daycare workers.
RUSH: That's right. That's been going on for quite a while.
CALLER: I was wondering: How is that possible to unionize if you're self-employed?
RUSH: If you vote, if you can be thugged into it, if you can be intimidated into it -- this is what Card Check is all about -- if you can be persuaded, if you can be convinced that this is the best way for you to go. I mean, these people have should I say -- ahem -- powerful, influential techniques; and there's nothing in the law that would stop them from trying to organize daycare workers.
CALLER: Who do they unionize against if they're not being paid by an employer?
RUSH: They're not union... In this case they'd be unionizing against the oppressive parents who are not paying them a "fair wage," and this would be a way of uniting and organizing all daycare workers into a single group where the salary/wages would be set and penalties and so forth -- and you'd negotiate with the state, is what would happen. You'd put the state in charge of your work. You say "self-employed," but you then would actually become an employee of the state. That's what they're trying to do. They're just trying to swell the number of people that pay dues. This is just an attempt to end up with more money in the Democrat Party. That's all this is. SEIU Local (I think it's 284) is in charge of daycare workers.
RUSH: And they're trying to turn them into state employees, pure and simple. Now, you're saying, "How can they do that?" That's who liberals are! This is who we're dealing with. They would organize every group of people and unionize them if they could.
