      Republicans in crucial states across the country are planning a renewed assault on the political power of labor unions after GOP victories in November’s elections handed the party control of states where Democrats have long defended union rights.

      President-elect Donald Trump "lied his ass off" about the terms of the deal to keep Carrier manufacturing jobs in the United States, the Carrier union's president said Tuesday.

      Carrier Workers Are Skeptical of Donald Trump’s Plan to Save Their Jobs

      President-elect Donald Trump will be in Indiana today to celebrate an agreement with the Carrier Corp. to keep its air-conditioner plant open in Indianapolis, saving 1,000 jobs in the process. The company had planned to shift operations to Mexico, so the announcement is being viewed as a big win for the incoming administration, which has promised to create jobs and stop manufacturing companies from fleeing the country.

      Republicans celebrating the overtime injunction forgot about their new working class base.

      On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant of Texas blocked the Obama administration rule to extend mandatory overtime pay to more than four million salaried workers. Expected to take effect December 1, the rule would have doubled the salary limit for overtime eligible employees to $47,500 from $23,660.

      After spending tens of millions of dollars in hopes of electing Hillary Clinton, the labor movement fears that President-elect Donald Trump, the Republican-controlled Congress and the supreme court will be hostile to labor and take numerous steps to hobble unions.
      Read More...
      One of the grand ironies of Donald Trump’s elevation to the presidency is that this self-proclaimed champion of the (white) working class is poised to become the most anti-labor chief executive in U.S. history. His victories in the old labor strongholds of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and (apparently) Michigan were shocking enough — as was his relatively strong performance nationally in union households (Clinton won them by 8 percent, down from Obama’s 2012 margin of 18 percent).
