Racking up more endorsement, the MNA, those on the frontline of health care, our nurses, have endorsed Stephen Lynch.
“Our endorsement of Congressman Lynch was based on his outstanding record of supporting a number of issues important to frontline nurses in Massachusetts, including his longstanding support for Federal and state legislation to require safe RN-to-patient staffing limits for nurses in acute care hospitals, safer working conditions for nurses, and access to quality health care for all in America,” said Massachusetts Nurses Association President Donna Kelly-Williams in a statement announcing the endorsement.”
Teamsters Local 122 know full well, that under NAFTA, they have a target on their back. Pres. Obama is allowing Mexican truck drivers to haul their freight, beyond in Texas border, and into the interior of the U.S.A. It won’t be long, where companies will use Mexican drivers to make business-to-business deliveries as this program expands. Stephen Lynch knows these American jobs are not “Obsolete” and must be protected, despite those that believe The Teamsters should be more progressive, and give up their jobs to the poorer Mexicans. Spread the wealth, so long as it isn’t your job or money, right all you Ed Markey supporters?
Trend line I see are municipal unions (ie teachers) favor Ed Markey, while private sector unions support Stephen Lynch. Things that make you go hmmmmmm? Wonder why?
