Union vs. Union: A Sign of Strength, or a Diversion?

Check out the Steven Greenhouse NY Times article today about the arguments going on within the labor movement even as labor unites behind an unprecidented effort to elect a new president. McEntee (AFSCME), Schaitberger (Firefighters) and Buffenbarger (Machinists) are pissed off at Andy Stern's remarks last week, while Bruce Raynor (UNITE HERE) defends him.

Good time to have this debate or should it wait until after the Presidential election? Read the article and check out Nathan Newman for his view.
