Video: AFL-CIO’s Trumka Denies Paying Protesters. Protesters Disagree.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka denied that his union pays protesters to attend their protests, despite video footage captured by The Daily Caller that proves otherwise.

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.”
