SEIU and Government Unions Are Now Having Their Tactics Used Against Them



By: Beth Baumann
Mar 08, 2017

Government unions. You either love them or you hate them. There really is no in-between. Fortunately for those of us who don’t like government corruption, there are people – and organizations – that are willing to take on the unions.

The Freedom Foundation, an organization on the west coast, has taken on the Service Employee International Union (SEIU) in the name of freedom and individual liberty. And so far, the lefties aren’t happy about it.

“Our mission is to help people get out of government unions and reverse [the] strangle-hold that government unions have on politicians and the government,” Tom McCabe, CEO of Freedom Foundation, told Townhall in an exclusive interview.

The organization got their start in 2014 when the Supreme Court ruled in the Harris v. Quinn case, saying the “First Amendment prohibits the collection of an agency fee from the plaintiffs in the case, home healthcare providers who do not wish to join or support a union.”

Up until that point, SEIU was targeting home healthcare workers – the parents and family members who take care of autistic or mentally challenged family members – as a means of supporting their union. As it currently stands, family members can receive a small stipend from Medicare for taking care of their loved one, instead of relying on hospitalization or a long-term care facility.

“SEIU figured out a scheme where, in liberal states, they got the governor of those states to deduct union dues for these home healthcare providers; and, automatically over night, they had money taken out of their paycheck. And the money went to SEIU,” McCabe explained.

I'm just astounded that a leftist political operation like SEIU would release a photo of a white dude out in front of a bunch of ignorant, uneducated, dumbfounded-looking ingrates circulate through the internet.  Sad Sad
