AFL-CIO Hard Hats - Shenanigans -

AFL-CIO Hard Hats

The AFL-CIO is passing around these hard hats today to every office on Capitol Hill. Check out where they're made:

They are also passing around this cardboard hammer which says, "another bad corporate tool to beat down workers." Plus, there's a booklet detailing "the truth about the Employee Free Choice Act." (Card Check.) “Everyone should have the right to join the union,” the group says when they drop the goodies off, according to sources.

UPDATE: The hats were from the D.C. Building Trades Council one of the local unions from D.C. part of the AFL-CIO. Spokesman Eddie Vale tells Shenan, "Obviously our policy is to only use union vendors and it was a mistake by a new staffer who ordered them and unfortunately wasn't caught before they went out."

Of course it was a mistake by a new staffer; an old staffer would have bought something from Sri Lanka or Pakistan..................
