United Steelworkers Union Wants Palin to Stop Using Hubby as a Prop

E-mail Print

Sarah Palin's husband is a steelworker and member of the United Steelworkers Union, but what does that mean for the possible McCain/Palin administration's position on unions? That's exactly what the United Steelworkers Union wants to know.
At the press conference, Palin trotted him out, stressing his steelworker credentials. Here’s a good union man, she emphasized.
But his United Steelworker card doesn’t include an automatic auxiliary membership for her. Or her running mate at the top of the Republican ticket, McCain, whose record on labor issues would require some serious penance before he could ever earn a union card.

John McCain opposes the Employee Free Choice Act, which would enable workers to collectively bargain and secure contracts with corporations more easily, like the employment contracts CEOs demand to have with corporations. McCain has jeopardized retirement by championing Bush’s privatization scheme for social security. McCain has voted for every American-job-killing free trade deal, without regard to human rights or environmental standards. And he has proposed, instead of providing health insurance for all Americans, a plan to tax the insurance of those lucky enough to still have employer-provided coveraage.

The workers of America cannot afford bad judgment after eight years of economy-crushing, debt-creating, Bush-Cheney. Unemployment, the national debt, inflation, home foreclosures and gas prices are all rising at demoralizing rates, while Bush and McCain continue to proclaim the economy is basically strong and any recession is all in workers’ heads, just some sort of psychological problem. Maybe that’s true — if you’re a multimillionaire like Bush and McCain. Or if you’ve got seven homes in which to hide from the reality of everyday American life like McCain.
Ms. Palin needs to stop trotting out her husband as an exhibit until she explains her positions on workers’ issues. Just exactly where does she stand on the Employee Free Choice Act?

Inquiring minds want to know, Ms. Palin. Where do you stand on Employee Free Choice? Where do you stand on privatization of social security? Where do you stand on job-killing free trade?
Are you with McCain – and against workers – on these issues? If so, you need to stop using your husband’s membership in the USW as a prop, because then his union card cannot possibly cover up your or John McCain’s worker-savaging positions.
Oh my. Is that unrest among the ranks?

The union has every right, and in fact a duty to call Palin out on these issues. The economic future of their membership is at stake.  The Bush years were not kind to anyone except for the very very wealthy.  The rest of the 90% of America has suffered.  Will McCain/Palin change direction? Or will they give us more of the same Bush policies? These are the questions inquiring minds want to know. Perhaps the National Enquirer can dig up some answers for us.

The government\'s job is not provider. It is not here to provide people with retirement; it is not here to provide people with healthcare. Absolutely privatize social security. Better yet, eliminate it altogether. It belongs to the wage earner; let the wage earner decide what he wants to do with it.

This couldn\'t have been a better year for the Democratic party.
I have to say that McCain is a genius. By a simple pick of a Vice President, he\'s managed to cause the left to self destruct and it is awesome to watch.
