One argument against illegal immigration is that it suppresses wages for the average American worker. If that's the case, why the hell is the SEIU going to Arizona to rally against that state's immigration law?
As a judge weighs whether to halt Arizona's controversial immigration law, hundreds of Los Angeles union members and activists are planning a bus caravan to Phoenix on Thursday — the day the law is set to take effect.
More than 550 people plan to ride on 11 buses to Arizona to stage a protest and launch a partnership with Arizona groups to boost voter registration. During the one-day trip, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, participants will meet with Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris, march to the state Capitol and hold a vigil. The participants represent 32 unions.
It's the same thing with the union support of Cap and Trade laws. Did it ever occur to these guys that most coal miners are union. How about drilling in Alaska and the Gulf? those jobs are excellent paying union jobs, yet the unions are working with our incompetent administration to kill those very jobs.
If I were a skeptical type, I might think that a pack of global marxists were running our unions.
