Party Platforms on Labor

I suppose they mean  organized labor, but here we go. We have organized labor in the arts, too.  From the New York Times:

LABOR

The Democratic platform states that “Democrats believe that the right to organize and collectively bargain is a fundamental American value; every American should have a voice on the job and a chance to negotiate for a fair day’s pay after a hard day’s work. We will continue to fight for the right of all workers to organize and join a union.” And the platform says that “we oppose the attacks on collective bargaining that Republican governors and state legislatures are mounting in states around the country.”

The Republican platform states: “We support the right of states to enact right-to-work laws and encourage them to do so to promote greater economic liberty. Ultimately, we support the enactment of a national right-to-work law to promote worker freedom and to promote greater economic liberty.” And the platform says: “We salute the Republican governors and state legislators who have saved their states from fiscal disaster by reforming their laws governing public employee unions. We urge elected officials across the country to follow their lead in order to avoid state and local defaults on their obligations and the collapse of services to the public.”
