Clinton defends labor unions as essential

Earlier on this blog I posted a YouTube video of Hillary Clinton and her role on Wal-Mart's Board of Directors. Since then she has renounced Wal-Mart's anti union views. See below:
"NEW YORK, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton says she no longer shares Wal-Mart's anti-union views and believes that labor unions "have been essential to our nation's success."

The New York Democrat and presidential contender, in a 6-year stint on the retail giant's board of directors, reportedly made no defense of labor unions attempting to organize Wal-Mart workers, ABC News said during its "Good Morning, America" broadcast.

As a presidential candidate, Clinton has been endorsed by more than a dozen unions, according to her campaign Web site biography which makes no reference to Wal-Mart." (read more....)
