AFL-CIO, Big Green & Chamber of Corp. Crime In Bed Together

This article says it all — the AFL-CIO, Big Green and the Chamber of Corporate Crime – also known as the Chamber of Commerce – in bed together. (The joint authors are from the state AFL-CIO and the Chamber of Commerce.)
“Illinois business and labor groups were at the table with representatives of the oil and gas industry, major environmental groups, legislators from both the House and Senate and their key staff… in an effort to find the regulatory sweet spot for high-volume hydraulic fracturing with horizontal drilling in Illinois….Think about that: business, labor and environmental groups coming to the table with our elected leaders to try and grow an industry, create jobs and protect the environment.”
