We just heard a lot about the labor movement and big bosses. I got transported back in my mind. You would have thought we were in the 1930s and 1940s. I don’t know if my colleague from Colorado has been paying attention, but union membership is at its lowest level since the 1940s right now because, even after 8 years of the most pro-union administration in decades, union membership continues to fall, and it continues to fall because workers in America aren’t buying what they are selling because a lot of what they are selling is exactly what we hear is the opposition to this bill, which is: Let’s limit people; let’s restrict people; let’s come up with all these things to tell them what they can’t do instead of telling them what they can.
