WASHINGTON — President Biden signed legislation Friday forcing railway unions to accept a labor agreement despite worker objections to a lack of paid sick days — hours before hobnobbing with visiting British royals.
Biden regularly calls himself the “most pro-union president” in history but asked Congress to intervene Monday, saying the US economy could not bear a railway shutdown.

Wonder where in the Constitution we find the Federal Gooferment’s power to force railway unions to accept a labor agreement?
I hope all the good Democratic unions are happy with their choice for President.
