How to Talk to Conservatives about Unions

Posted on March 3, 2012 by

Take two minutes to watch this quick exchange between a reporter from The Daily Caller – Tucker Carlson’s popular and provocative conservative website – and Rich Trumka.

The AFL-CIO prez  matter-of-factly and convincingly links the decline in union density with economic malaise and affirms union membership as a civil right.

Though the Daily Caller showcased this q & a to alarm its audience, the clip is instructive to labor activists when we’re confronted by skeptics and opponents.

The lesson: keep cool and stay on message.
