    Hoffa Statement on Change to Win Founding Convention - SOURCE International Brotherhood of Teamsters
    But the President cares about the wrong people. Who got the first no-bid contract? That's right -- Halliburton. What was George Bush's first action in the devastated region -- to repeal Davis-Bacon. That means Halliburton won't have to pay construction workers $13 bucks an hour. $27,000 a year is too much for Cheney's cronies.

    We have a strategy to train workers to rebuild their communities. The Teamsters training drivers; SEIU training healthcare workers; the Carpenters training construction workers; the Laborer's training hazmat workers; and, UNITE HERE training casino and hotel workers.

    We must learn from this tragedy and help these workers start over. We must help our fellow Americans build new communities and new lives. We must give a hand up -- not a hand out or a slap down.
