Bernie Sanders vs the real world

Sanders latest Tweet:

Donald Trump just picked an anti-labor CEO as his secretary of Labor. What happened to his promise of siding with workers?

I’m not sure how you define anti-labor, but the point is not to side with workers or unions, but to land on the side of balanced, fair relationships between workers and their employers. 

There are many (mostly) Democratic governors who have sided with their workers in the negotiating process and as a result have effectively bankrupt their states. 

The auto workers were able (with the aid of management) to gain such lucrative agreements they made their member’s companies unsustainable in the new world. 

If there is any side to take, it’s the side of mutual success because a one sided agreement in either direction is the road to failure. 

I don’t think Sanders and the far left understand this.
