Think this is who they mean? When we hear feel good politicians talk about the evils of money in politics and special interests buying favorable legislation, my guess is they don’t mean unions! Notwithstanding, it’s been reported that one of New York City’s powerful unions made regular edits and arguably had a veto on final language of the Fair Workweek Legislation that Mayor de Blasio signed into law last year. Although they do not represent any workers in the fast food industry, SEIU local 32BJ was an integral part of the drafting and editing process throughout – with the Mayor’s office, the city’s Department of consumer Affairs and the City Council.
