They Got Their Wish, Good and Hard

The elected the commie, and supported him ever since.

Until they read the fine print.

The first union grievance is that the employer mandate is leading business to hold worker hours below 30 hours a week to comply with the Administration’s regulatory definition.

... The unions are also aggrieved because they have failed to gain special subsidies for the multi-employer health insurance plans allowed under the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947

...Now what they’re seeing is workers are looking at the exchanges and seeing, ‘I can drop out of the employer plan, I get a huge subsidy, I come out ahead, and don’t have to be a member of the union.’ So this is a disaster for the unions...

No wonder the local AFSCME "leader" decamped to DC.  The party is over in Flyover Country.
