Romney and Ryan and Respect for Workers

October 16, 2012

Writing on the Huffington Post, AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders focuses on the lack of respect for workers shown by Gov. Mitt Romney, Cong. Paul Ryan and the corporate CEOs backing their campaign:

"Romney speaks out regularly against the right of sanitation workers and other public service workers to have a voice on the job.
