Since his election, President Trump has been reversing Obama’s agenda piece by piece.
And Democrats have been fighting back with all their might.
But after Trump did one thing to destroy a massive Obama policy, there is little left to fight for.
Barack Obama’s eight-year reign began a fundamental change in the United States meant to be completed by Hillary Clinton.
It is a shift from individual liberty towards massive government control over every aspect of our lives.
Obama’s accomplishments were steadily shifting America in this direction.
But with the election of Donald Trump, his agenda is being reversed.
Already, Obamacare is ruled unconstitutional, in what is the biggest disappointment to Obama and his supporters.
But it gets much worse for them considering Trump isn’t slowing down.
One of the biggest supporters of former President Barack Obama is labor unions.
They look to him to support their agenda, even when it harms employers and businesses.
One of the worst examples of this relationship is Obama’s policies relating to business franchises.
A business franchise is largely disconnected from the actual company itself, as they handle all the day to day operations, including hiring and employee relations.
In a move promoted by labor unions, Obama’s policy through the Department of Labor makes the corporate office liable for many employment violations committed at the franchise level.
This has been hindering hiring in one of America’s most profitable business models, along with creating confusion for employees.
And it was clearly for political reasons, as labor unions have long been standing against franchised companies like McDonald’s.
But Trump is reversing this policy, moving back to the traditional model.
“This proposal will reduce uncertainty over joint employer status and clarify for workers who is responsible for their employment protections,” said Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. “Providing public notice and comment is the best way to move forward with another significant deregulatory proposal.”
The proposal is currently in a comment period, with those affected having 60 days to submit arguments either for or against the proposal.
If fully implemented, it will be yet another downfall for President Trump and labor unions.
President Trump has boldly been standing up against radical policies promoted by labor unions since he was on the campaign trail.
He is one of the few Republicans in the 2016 election who pledged to support a National Right to Work Act, which bans the practice of forcing employees to pay union dues to retain employment in many industries.
Already, 24 states have these policies, including Michigan, which has long been known as one of the strongest union states.
It is a common sense proposal, much like Trump’s newest policy change relating to franchises.
But because labor unions disagree, they will claim the change is radical, and bad for workers, despite experts disagreeing.
Tammy McCutchen, an attorney at management-side Littler Mendelson who worked at the Labor Department under George W. Bush told the Washington Free Beacon that, “Some are going to say this is radical—it’s not. It’s a return to longstanding precedent.”
Do you think Trump should continue to dismantle Obama’s agenda?
