Bernie Sanders goes after the IBEW union.
Published November 14th, 2017. 6:41 pm.
IBEW issued a press release October 5th, 2017 stating two dozen wiremen and linemen were on their way to rebuild Puerto Rico, a country devastated by Hurricane Maria.
Despite all of the hard work, far left Senator Bernie Sanders took the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to task.
Puerto Rico's electrical grid has been notoriously plagued with issues and the territory is billions of dollars in debt. The opportunity for a ground up reconstruction of the power grid has presented itself with the relief funding from congress, but the Democratic Party wishes to make the issue political.
Defectio staff have reached out to the IBEW for comment regarding the Senator's tweet, but have not yet returned our request.
