One must admit that, since winning re-election in 2012, Barack Obama has seemingly thrown his union buddies under the green bus (see Keystone Pipeline).
However, no matter how committed Obama is to his green friends, the choice of giving a speech at a California Walmart isn’t going unnoticed by the United Food & Commercial Workers’ union which spent tens of millions on Democrat politicians—including Barack Obama—over the years.
UFCW boss Joe Hansen took a shot at Obama’s choice of giving a speech at the famously union-free Walmart by stating:
“President Obama will stand side by side with a company known for low wages, few benefits, unreliable hours, discrimination against women, violating workers’ rights, and yes, environmental degradation,” said Joe Hansen, international president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union.
Mr. Hansen also knocked the retailer’s efforts to curb its carbon emissions.
