Biden spoke Wednesday to an annual conference of the United Automobile Workers. He said the Chamber of Commerce and right-to-work committees are leading parts of the American business to wage a concerted war on collective bargaining. He said unions “are the only guys keeping the barbarians at the gate.”
Biden is pointing to right-to-work legislation that some states have enacted. He said things look dim for unions now but will get better.
The vice president is also praising trial lawyers. He said they are the only people taking on major corporations. Biden said people call them “bottom-feeders” but that they’re responsible for protections such as product safety standards.
