Video: AFL-CIO’s Trumka Denies Paying Protesters. Protesters Disagree.
TheDC asked Trumka about the video of ”Occupy CPAC” protesters who told theDC that the unions had paid the protesters $60 to attend. The protest was organized by AFL-CIO, but Trumka refused to believe that a protester had admitted to being paid.
“No, I don’t believe that. I frankly don’t believe that people told you that because the pickets that we have… we never pay people to picket. Those are union members who come out.”
