UAW Workers Enjoy Overeating at ‘Bailout Cafe’
Change was in the air—and on the way—in November, as the AFL-CIO’s biggest-ever political mobilization headed toward the finish line. Tens of thousands of union volunteers packed local union halls to phone bank or to talk with union family voters in neighborhoods around the country in the final get-out-the-vote push to elect Barack Obama and win even bigger working family majorities in Congress.
The way I see it, the labor union effort to “win even bigger working family majorities in Congress” appears to have begun when UAW members like the one shown seated at the table, began “overeating” at the U.S. government’s “Bailout Cafe” and leaving taxpayers to pick up the tab.
