Few labor figures on Sunday shows for Labor Day Weekend
Despite it being Labor Day Weekend, the Sunday talk shows didn’t find it necessary to have union leaders be among their guests this week.
Teamsters’s President Jim Hoffa was the only person affiliated with a labor organization on a Sunday political talk show. Hoffa appeared on CNN’s State of the Union calling Apple Inc. and other American businesses “unpatriotic” for placing jobs overseas instead of in America.
NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS’ Face The Nation, ABC’s This Week, and Fox News’ Sunday did not have any person of labor representation on their shows.
