About the book:

Simply put, the leftist labor unions have the Democrats in their pockets. And were all paying the price.

Linda Chavez, President George W. Bushs original choice for Secretary of Labor and a former union official, is one of the foremost authorities on Americas labor unions. Now, in the explosive new book Betrayal, she and fellow union expert Daniel Gray expose the corrupt bargain between the labor movement and the Democratic Party.

Committed to a far-left political agendaand to enhancing their own powerunion bosses funnel at least half a billion dollars into Democratic coffers every year. And they do it, illegally, by using dues money that workers are forced to pay as a condition of their employmentdues money that each year brings the unions $17 billion, all of it tax-free.

What do labor bosses get in return? The power to call the shots in Democratic campaigns and on party policy, extraordinary influence at all levels of government, billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded federal grants, and special legal privileges that leave them free to act as they please, no matter the consequences for the American people. The cycle of corruption is seemingly endless.

Chavez and Gray name names, exposing the many politicians who are in Big Labors pocketincluding the leading lights of the Democratic Party. Betrayal also reveals:

" Big Labors all-out efforts in the 2004 election, including how just one local union has launched a $35-million campaign to unseat President Bush

" How corrupt union officials use members hard-earned money to fund lavish lifestylesand how their Democratic supporters let them get away with it

" How unions flout the law by failing to report any of their political spending to the IRS

" How a government report uncovered the Democrats sellout to Big Laborbut how the unions and the Democrats sued to keep the report from going public

" How the U.S. government lets unions practice legalized terrorism against American citizens

" How public-employee unions extort concessions from the government and put Americans at risk by refusing to provide vital services like policing and firefighting

" How Americans now live under a system of legal apartheidone set of rules for labor bosses, another for the rest of us

All of us foot the bill for this corrupt system. Now its up to us to do something about it.
