The move is likely to cost union workers 11,000 jobs, and since the union went all-in for Biden, I think this is delicious.
AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka slammed President Joe Biden during an interview that aired in part on Sunday over his executive order that canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline, which cost a lot of people their jobs.
“Organized labor is crucial to the Biden coalition. But there are significant tensions among environmentalists, the president’s team addressing climate change and some parts of the labor movement,” Axios reported. “The Laborers’ International Union of North America said the Keystone decision will cost 1,000 existing union jobs and 10,000 projected construction jobs.”
Trumka said that he “thinks” that Biden realizes it was a mistake to sign the executive order costing Americans jobs during the middle of a pandemic.
Trumka doesn’t even get halfway through the interview before he starts wavering on Biden. What an absolute worm. Well, if nothing else, the members of the AFL-CIO have the perfect person to lead them down the road to ruin.
