"A week ago, Oaklandsocialist wrote an article on how Ironworkers Local 86
was supporting Amazon against the homeless in Seattle. We sent it to Chris
McClain, business manager of Ironworkers Local 86. We received the letter
below from McClain – or at least we assume it was from him. It’s not
signed, but it came from his e mail address.

"Most of the reply is a long “rags-to-riches” tale by McClain. This is the
typical kind of thing that the capitalists themselves like to talk about.
“Anybody who works hard and applies themselves can make it in America,” is
the moral. So, before McClain took the side of Amazon and Corporate America
in practice. Now, he’s doing it in the realm of ideas....

"Instead of demonstrating to boost the profits of one of the richest
companies in the world – Amazon – building trades workers should be
organizing to picket Amazon all across the country as a way of pressuring
them to pay up."
