Corzine Joins Union Stunt Staged At New Jersey School
Send Wal-Mart Back to School is being staged across the country by an organization called Wake Up Wal-Mart and two teachers groups — the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association. Wake Up Wal-Mart is backed by the UFCW and is the brainchild of Paul Blank, “a refugee from Howard Dean's political campaign.”
As teachers enter their second month of vacation, they have plenty of time and money to give to the political campaigns of their Democrat backers and organizing other workers to add to the coffers of their causes.
In an effort to raise prices and cut jobs at Wal Mart, the campaign hopes to convince people to boycott the largest private employer in the United States. Assemblyman Conaway urged parents to boycott Wal-Mart when purchasing back-to-school supplies.
The Associated Press account did not offer an explanation for the teachers’ unions’ participation in the anit-Wal Mart campaign. However, Paul Blank said the Wake Up Wal-Mart coordinated events were meant to highlight Wal-Mart's "relentless pursuit of profit and total abandonment of moral values." This is in contrast to politicians, union bosses and teachers unions that do everything for “the children”.
