"America’s largest and most influential labor union."
Can we please stop repeating factual errors Mr. Blumgart!?
Strike one right here: http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archive…
Trust me, I get the SEIU love; some of my best friends were and are SEIU organizers. And yeah, Stern is tight with Obama, the union has been influential throughout the healthcare debate, and I concede that they are the fastest growing union of the last decade. But please, you do your reportage disservice when such a simple, picayune error gets printed and perpetuated.
Don't get me wrong, Jake. I'm a big fan of your writing, and labor issues should be getting more column inches. Or blog pixels... or whatevs.
