AFL-CIO’s Trumka Rejoices After Wisconsin’s Walker Defeat With A Single Sentence

Following Tuesday’s mid-term elections, AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka issued a one-sentence press release on the defeat of Wisconsin’s Republican governor Scott Walker. Here it is…

For the last eight years, to union bosses throughout the country, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker had been “Public Enemy #1.”

In large part, unions’ antipathy toward Walker was due to the enactment of Act 10, which cost Wisconsin unions 40% of their memberships over the last several years.

Now, after narrowly defeating Walker’s bid for a third term during Tuesday’s mid-term elections, unions are rejoicing—perhaps none more so than AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka who, on Wednesday morning, issued a press release that stated simply: “Scott Walker was a national disgrace.”
