Jim Hoffa, Teamsters President, in the union’s official news release:
Today’s vote shows us who is standing with workers and which politicians are in collusion with corporate America to destroy the middle class.
The legal system that is supposed to protect workers is broken, and workers are paying a terrible price. Corporations trample on workers with reckless disregard for the law and they must be stopped.
Who talks like that? And intends to be taken seriously, that is.
UPDATE (6:20 p.m.) To his credit, Leo W. Gerard of the United Steelworkers avoids the insults and rhetorical excess too common elsewhere. Gerard’s statement here.
