You think he'd have that without a PA?
Ah yes, the old "what was good in the past is inherently good now" train of thought. It's not like I can make a short drive to Eastern Ohio, and see all of the closed-up steel mills, foundries, and manufacturing plants to see the natural end result of unions who can chalk "bankrupting the industry" up right next to the rest of their legacy. "We got the 40-hour workweek, and overtime pay, and also the ability to devastate an entire region economically for 35 years and into the indefinite future!"
