Andy Stern is leaving the SEIU to join Obama's debt commission. Stern will leave the SEIU $85 million in debt. Why does Obama think this guy can help solve the nation's debt problem?
The Washington Times reported:
Purple may be the official color of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), but Andy Stern is leaving the union deep in the red. Last week, he surprised the labor community by announcing his resignation as president...
SEIU is $85 million in debt, down from its 2008 high of $102 million, and has been forced to lay off employees.
SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger sits on the Obama administration’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Mr. Stern himself was appointed by Mr. Obama to its deficit commission.
