WASHINGTON, DC –(ENEWSPF)–October 23, 2012 After last night’s Presidential debate, Mary Kay Henry, President of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), issued the following statement:
“While the President laid out a clear vision for nation building here at home and showing leadership across the globe, Mitt Romney showed once again that his ideas on foreign policy are as stale, misdirected and dangerous as his ideas for restoring our nation’s economy.
“President Obama tonight showed the leadership we need in today’s global economy. He understands that we must invest in good jobs at home – just as he did when he saved the American automobile industry – invest in the best education system in the world and support the heroes who fight for our country when they return home.”
With 2.1 million members in Canada, the United States and Puerto Rico, SEIU is the fastest-growing union in the Americas. Focused on uniting workers in healthcare, public services and property services, SEIU members are winning better wages, healthcare and more secure jobs for our communities, while uniting their strength with their counterparts around the world to help ensure that workers–not just corporations and CEOs–benefit from today’s global economy.
