This is great - SEIU campaigns hard for Obama, gives countless millions of dollars to democrats, provides tens of thousands of foot soldiers to ring bells and answer phone banks. And the pay off?
- Dozens of union airport workers were holding a prayer vigil outside Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s house on Thursday, asking him to reconsider a decision to hand custodial work at O’Hare International Airport to a new company that doesn’t use union labor.
CBS 2[...] reports the O’Hare janitors and window washers will lose their jobs in just over two weeks, when a new contractor takes over custodial work at the airport.
[...] Union custodial workers employed by Scrub, Inc., are being pushed at O’Hare out after Emanuel awarded a new janitorial contract to United Maintenance, a non-union firm.
But Rahm is pro-union. And Obama is pro-union.
How's that feeling right about now?
And that double-dip recession you hear about? Started back in July evidently. Strap in people, a rough 2013 is on tap.
