Pro-trump, pro-labor rally? Huh?

Be interesting to see how many laborers actually show up vs. number of exploiters. Release published in Grant County Beat, Silver City, NM. AKA Teaparty press online.

1. You would be surprised how many union people are Republicans.

A downside in the success the unions had in getting good wages and benefits for workers was
many turned into Republicans and the leaders became the 1%..

2. I've had mixed experiences with unions

from both sides. Some cases where the workers really controlled the union, and a couple where the union leaders were out to line their own pockets. Kinda like politics.

3. You'd be surprised how few unions are out there

When union membership was at its height it skewed left

NM, where Trump's "labor" rally is being held, has less than 4% union membership

4. It doesn't say 'unions' it says 'laborers'. Today, many "laborers" are immigrants.

This will be a major fail.
