The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is one of the most politically active unions you will find in this country.
They also give the majority of their money to liberal causes.
After donating millions of dollars to Hillary Clinton and the “Fight for $15” movement, it looks like the union has fallen on hard times.
From The Daily Caller:
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) spent $61 million on political activities and lobbying in 2016, as well as an additional $19 million on the Fight for $15 movement. Now that spending is leading to massive layoffs.
The powerful union’s most recent Department of Labor filings revealed that the union spent $61.6 million, or about 20 percent of its $314.6 million budget, on political activities, including Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign, according to Bill McMorris of the Washington Free Beacon.
While the union picked up a modest 15,000 new members in 2016, it has seen revenues fall, leading to staff layoffs inside its Washington, D.C. headquarters, according to the report.
The SEIU, which represents over two million members in the public sector, service, and healthcare industry, made plans to cut its budget by 30 percent after President Donald Trump defeated Clinton in November.
Looks like those investments aren’t paying off.
