Left spitting mad at Jerry Brown

Steven Greenhut: Maybe the old, cantankerous and unpredictable Jerry Brown is rearing his head at the state Capitol. The governor, despite being a close ally of the labor unions, actually vetoed Darrell Steinberg’s noxious SB104, which would have essentially eliminated secret elections for unions. Had the Steinberg legislation passed, farm workers would be intimidated into joining unions. The union leaders would know who they are and could apply pressure on them. Here is Brown’s veto message, which is filled with incomprehensible jargon about the Agricultural Labor Relations Act. Apparently, he realized the totalitarian implications of SB 104. Here is a typical response from the Left, which is far more interested in advocating more union power than in protecting the civil liberties of the humble farm workers who would lose the right of conscience or who would be subject to union violence and intimidation. Steinberg revealed himself as someone far more interested in the union agenda than in the safety of workers.
