Union supporter and candidate in the democratic primary for Congress from the 27th District in Florida, David Richardson hopes to replace retiring republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and has pointed to his strong support for unionization as one tenet of his campaign. In fact, Richardson promises that if elected, he will “oppose efforts that are anti-union or that weaken the ability to organize and bargain collectively”. Then, his own campaign staff voted to unionize, so he laid off half of them! Of course, his campaign explained the layoffs resulted solely from a decision to focus more on paid media than field campaign staff and that there was zero connection to unionizing! His laid-off campaign workers found that explanation laughable! I would guess that’s quite a bit like his campaign?
