UAW prez's rock 'em, sock 'em speech

Here's UAW President Bob King at the Teamsters convention this week in Las Vegas. It's 17 minutes long, but it's worth it. Some favorite lines:

It's not just a war on unions or union workers. There is a war on all workers in the middle class in America...

There is not a democracy that exists today without a strong middle class, and the only thing that ever built a middle class is unions and the institution of collective bargaining...

Watch this great speech by Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders about the war against workers. He stood on the Senate floor and told the other senators (most of whom are millionaires),

If we don’t begin to stand together and start representing those families, there will not be a middle class in this country.

Sanders said a war is being waged by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in this country against the working families of the United States of America.
