NJ Govt Supporting Unions

With the Democratic retaking of the state assembly and governor's seat in New Jersey, a whole set of pro-union policies are moving forward. In the last two days, there was a one-two punch of Governor McGreevey approving an executive order banning sweatshops for state uniforms or other contracts and the state assembly appropriations committee pushed forward a pro-union labor bill.

Sorry, I guess that was a bit too cute. :^) 25 Louisiana Av NW is the home of the Marble Palace, headquarters of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
