Just came off the streets after march and rally with hotel workers of @unitehere and #publicschool teachers @uesf who just earned a pay raise thru SF’s #YesOnG ballot campaign waged with @SFDemocrats @sflabor and @TeamPelosi. People are angry and scared about #Janus.... 1/thread Christine and SF teachers union leaders marching
We marched with hundreds of hotel workers of @unitehere who are in contract negotiations with massively lucrative #SF hotel chains that will not give their workers a contract with fair wages. Message: “One Job Should be Enough” It’s NOT - and #Janus makes their lives harder. 2/ Susie Christine Rafael marching
Both the hotel workers and the teachers said the same thing: Donald Trump’s #SCOTUS sided with corporate bosses over workers, first denying protections against #sexualharassment and today denying voices in the job in #Janus. By design, TRUMP’S COURT IS HURTING WORKING PEOPLE. 3/ Local 2 Hotel Workers Union and Teachers Union leaders speak at SF rally
As we marched we talked about how much damage Trump is doing to America - to our liberties, our dignity, our communities. “Act Up, Fight Back” shouted #lgbtq legend @CleveJones1 - as he as for decades - adding “I’m too old to still be protesting this sh*t but here we are” 4/ Cleve Jones and Christine
We discussed a MESSAGE to fight Trump’s Court packing scheme. Should we say “a Man under investigation should not appoint a Justice to rule on his fate?” While TRUE, will people rally around “he’s not above the Law & can’t pick his Justice ?” 5/
What about “the McConnell Rule” - “don’t pick a #SCOTUS Justice in an election year; let the people speak” because that worked for Republicans and their #StolenSeat snatched from President Obama. Does anyone care about Republicans breaking rules? <Maybe> in DC. 6/ McConnell tweets about no Supreme Court vote til after the elections
Well as tempting as it was to throw McConnell’s hypocrisy back at him, we decided we were just Democrats being Democrats, waiting for a referee ex machina descending to blow the whistle and say “#Trump’s not fair.” Sadly, no referee is coming and if she did, #TrumpDontCare! 7/ McConnell tweets saying delay scotus vote til after elections
It turns out the answer was right in front of us. I mean RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. Trump’s Court hurts people. “One Job Should Be Enough” - But Trump’s Jusice means no fair pay, no pension, no protections! #SaveSCOTUS? Make that #SaveUS - save the people! 8/ One Job Should Be Enough signsOne Job Should Be Enough signs
Our MESSAGE: don’t get fancy - get REAL: Trump’s #SupremeCourtJustice will hurt people for a generation. We value public education, living wages, clean air & water, healthcare, reproductive freedom, dignified retirement, equality for all. We Are #UnionStrong & Not Going Back! 9/9 Rudy of SF Labor with Union Strong sticker
