Biden Losing Union Workers, Member Explains Why

Daily Report April 28,2024

President Joe Biden’s 2024 reelection bid took a hit after a union apprentice detailed how his group support has shifted from the president to his predecessor, former president Donald Trump.

Steamfitters Union apprentice Jason Murray told Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Thursday that his union supported Biden in 2020 but got burned after the president’s policy caused thousands of his colleagues to lose their jobs.

“Yeah, just four years ago you could even see that our union said to support Biden,” Murray told host Jesse Walters. “Immediately the week after he got into office and took over, laid off 10,000 of our workers. Some of my brothers. Laid them off. The job was gone. They were out working on the pipeline, [he] shut down the pipeline. Now all these guys that had jobs, out there working trying to provide for their family, they don’t have a job anymore.”

Walter noted that Biden did not apologize to union members who lost their jobs.

“What else started to change that shifted your political leanings in the union towards Trump?” Watters asked Murray.

Murray told Watters that the skyrocketing cost of living and the exploding number of illegal immigrants let into the country under Joe Biden is another major reason why the union is tilting towards Donald Trump.

“Just the cost of living going through the roof. Everything that they promised. They say more work, they say all this, and then all of a sudden they turn around. All these illegal immigrants coming in. I mean, [NY Democrat Governor] Kathy Hochul, she was trying to give our work away,” Murray added. “So it’s like, you say, the Democrats, you’re here for the working man, yet here you’re trying to give our jobs away to people that don’t even have legal status here yet.”

Murray, who insisted that the former president’s ongoing criminal trial is a “shame,” also noted that his union had more success under the Trump administration.

“I have conversations with guys on the job sites all the time. 2018 was one of the busiest times that any of us can remember in construction. That was during his [Trump’s] presidency,” Murray said.
