Unions plan to protest Trump with a strike


Another anti-Trump strike is being planned by labor unions to take place on May 1, which is International Workers’ Day.

According to a report by the Washington Examiner on Saturday, more than 300,000 workers could walk off their jobs.

Concerned about the president’s immigration policies and what effect they may have on unionized labor, demonstrators intend to show their displeasure with a strike.

“Service Employees International Union, which endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president back in 2015, will be a large component of the protest,” said the report.

“We understand that there’s risk involved in that,” David Huerta, president of SEIU’s California chapter, told reporters, “but we’re willing to take that risk in order to be able to move forward in this moment, while the most marginalized are in the crosshairs of this administration.”
