Obamacare: Get Ready For 21 Million Unionized Health Care Workers

In a new book that is set for publication on Tuesday, Mallory Factor and Elizabeth Factor claim that Barack Obama’s health care reform was, in part, an effort to unionize twenty-one million health care workers. Factor is a politics and government professor at the Citadel. The new book is titled Shadowbosses: Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind.

The substance of the book is a December 9, 2008 memo from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare president Dennis Rivera to the transition team of Obama-Biden.

According to the Daily Caller,

That memo outlined a legislative proposal calling for “increasing the capacity of the health care workforce” as part of a larger health care reform initiative.

The SEIU and the Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Factor writes, later coordinated with other public-sector unions to spend “literally hundreds of millions of dollars promoting Obamacare.”

Factor, who is also a columnist for Forbes and the senior editor of money and politics for The Street.com, recounts emails from former federal Office of Labor-Management Standards staffer Don Loos, who is now the senior adviser to the president of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation.

“It is clear that Big Labor is banking on the probability that all healthcare workers eventually become federal, state, and municipal healthcare employees,” Loos told Factor. He claims that this will make them eligible for involuntary unionization via public sector unions such as AFSCME and the SEIU.

“Obamacare is an SEIU and AFSCME membership ‘net,’” he continued, “designed to eventually capture 21 million forced-dues paying government workers.” New health care jobs created by Obamacare, he said, will eventually be filled by “federal, state, and municipal healthcare employees.”

There is no doubt that Obamacare will inflict costs beyond our comprehension and demand more government program services and eventually government health care workers. The DC goes on to write, “Factor writes in “Shadowbosses” that Canada’s national health care system has provided an apt example. Heritage Foundation labor economist James Sherk told him that “60 percent of Canadian health care workers and a stunning 80 percent of nurses belong to unions — more than quadruple the levels in America.” Prior to socialized medicine in Canada, only ten percent were union members.
