image SEIU 1021 Nato Green Doing Damage Control For SEIU? Opposes Single Payer In CA green_nato_seiu.jpeg by repost
Comedian and SEIU 1021 consultant has written an op ed opposing pushing for single payer in California. He says that instead people should push for the national bill 562. The California SEIU taking their cue from the bosses at Kaiser are opposing single payer in California. The corporate unionists that Nato works for are in bed with the bosses at Kaiser and many of their own members such as home care workers cannot even get healthcare. Nato should know better but maybe his job is more importa...
