All politicians aren’t that hypocritical every year, y’all. Many just don’t care about the problems facing the working class.
Miners are slapped in the face by recent senatorial rules for MSHA not to enforce new dust regulations. School teachers are shown how much their work is appreciated by across-the-board rejection of cost of living increases by our legislators.
How far would these same legislators ahve made it without the money and votes of miners, as well as the education they received in the public schools?
Hypocritical, maybe. But apathy, absolutely.
