Union Free Radio, Ep. 2: Sorry, Joe, Unions Did NOT Build The Middle Class

Joe Biden delivers a speech to a Joint Session of Congress, April 28, 2021.
When President Biden proclaimed recently that “unions built the middle class,” he was repeating one of the unions’ biggest myths. Although unions—like a hitchhiker—were along for the ride, they were not the driving force that built the middle class.

In this episode of Union Free Radio, host and RedState.com contributor Peter List dispels the union myth that “unions built the middle class” by giving listeners the logic, and the data that proves the myth false.

“You know,” List states, “the bad part about blindly accepting a myth like this is that it gives unions a free pass in order to push bad bills, like the poisonous PRO Act.”
