Joe The Plumber The One Man Band Enlisted To Campaign Against Employee Free Choice Act
Joe The Plumber The Newest Member of The Employee Free Choice Act Union Busting Club
Joe the Plumber is hitting the campaign trail again! He’s been pressed into service to do a series of events throughout Pennsylvania rallying opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act, the organizer of the events confirms.
Mr. Plumber will speak at rallies against the measure in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia on March 30th and 31st, according to a spokesperson for the anti-EFCA group Americans for Prosperity.
“The public loves Joe the Plumber,” the spokesperson, Mary Ellen Burke, claimed to me. “They see him as a role model.”
Asked whether Joe the Plumber had any particular knowledge or expertise about EFCA that might explain the decision to enlist him, Burke said that he was being enlisted to provide a “grassroots perspective” and “the working perspective” on the measure.
Pressed on whether Joe the Plumber has any particular claim to being a spokesperson on the issue, Burke replied that “he represents the American worker.”
Burke couldn't immediately say whether Joe the Plumber was being paid for his appearances.
Update: AFL-CIO spokesman Eddie Vale emails a response:
This perfectly illustrates what is happening on the ground in thestates. Millions of actual workers are making their voices heard in support of the Employee Free Choice Act. On the other side the business front groups are relegated to trying to gin up faux grassroots support — and possibly even needing to pay people to do it.
