Verizon workers went out on strike yesterday. We recommend everyone go to the AFL-CIO page and support the Verizon strikers.
Interesting take on the two Democrats running for President from Salon.com which shows how Bernie walked with the Verizon workers on the picket line Wednesday and spoke passionately on their behalf. To be fair, Hillary joined the strikers too along with Randi Weingarten but Hillary also took a $225,000 fee to speak to Verizon in the past. Not bad work if you can get it and it is kind of symbolic of why many do not trust Ms. Clinton.
Bernie also won the TWU Local 100 endorsement yesterday.
I wouldn't miss the Clinton-Sanders debate tonight for just about anything. I only wish there was a Jia Lee-Michael Mulgrew debate for UFT presidential candidates. Wouldn't that be fun?
