The union representing Albuquerque and Bernalillo County firefighters has endorsed the Republican candidate in an important New Mexico House of Representatives election.
This is yet another indication of the pathetic state of the Democratic Party, which, nationally and in New Mexico has turned its back on the Labor Movement and abandoned the working class.
New Mexico Democrats won't even utter the word "union," lest they be accused of supporting unions. I've cited many instances of this on this blog, and recently posted a link to US senator Martin Heinrich's most recent annual Labor Day greeting, which doesn't mention unions.
Which constitutes a huge slap in the face not only to union members but to the countless workers who struggled and even died to raise living standards for American workers to point that American workers were the envy of the world, before Democrats like Heinrich decided to abandon them.
