Radical Lefties Stiff Union

The "Young Turks" is a group of ultra-left activists most famous for their success in getting AOC into Congress despite her obvious intellectual vacuum.  (We're still waiting for the Dean of Business at Boston University to commit well-deserved hara-kiri over her.)

Anyhow, this bunch has a YouTube network.  That's where the fun begins.

The Young Turks, a left-wing and pro-Bernie Sanders YouTube network, is refusing to recognize its employees' new labor union.

A week after TYT Union was formed to represent production and post-production workers at the popular liberal channel, the group announced that company leadership had refused voluntary recognition of the union....

Young Turks is NOT the only Lefty outfit to stiff a union.

...The decision from TYT—which did not respond to a request for comment—comes as other left-wing outlets have resisted employee attempts to form unions. In September, the Center for American Progress's outlet ThinkProgress was accused of union-busting after it fired its entire staff and "relaunched" with non-union employees. Months earlier, Vox Media publicly clashed with its writers' union, resulting in a site-wide walkout.
Greed comes in all flavors, eh?
