WINNING THE WAR ON WAGES:

Hillary Clinton Delivers 'Cautious' Message on Trade to AFL-CIO (PETER NICHOLAS and  MELANIE TROTTMAN, 7/30/15, WSJ)

 One labor leader who heard Hillary Clinton's private pitch Thursday for the AFL-CIO presidential endorsement came away unimpressed by her "cautious" message and her refusal to take a position on the Pacific trade pact, which organized labor fiercely opposes.

RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United and a member of the labor federation's executive council, said in an interview that Mrs. Clinton was "non-committal" on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a "bedrock issue" for the labor movement. Many union leaders predict that, if enacted, the TPP will result in jobs moving overseas and new strains for U.S. workers.

Were they not paying attention to the free trading administrations she served in?
