The powerful union behind the fast food workers' wage movement endorsed Hillary Clinton for president Tuesday.How does Hillary "support and stand with" working families on poverty wages? By telling them to STFU when they ask for a $15 minimum wage or single-payer medical care. Oh well. She's the one in charge here. Big "progressive" groups figure if they kiss her ring now then maybe she'll keep the Trumps from punching them so hard. (She'll let them get punched a little, though.) That's how democracy works, right?
The 2-million-member Service Employees International Union approved the endorsement through a vote by its executive board. “Hillary Clinton has proven she will fight, deliver and win for working families,” said SEIU President Mary Kay Henry in a statement. “SEIU members and working families across America are part of a growing movement to build a better future for their families, and Hillary Clinton will support and stand with them."

There really is no "The Left" in this country. There is a disoriented loose amalgam of cowardly sycophants always looking for a hollow suit to hide behind in case the big mean Tumps decide to punch them.
