    Statement by United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry (UA) Assistant General President Steve Kelly on McCain's "Joe the Plumber" - AFL-CIO press release
    Last night John McCain made Joe the Plumber a household name. His manufactured outrage on behalf of Joe would be a lot more believable if his economic plan had anything to do with helping working people deal with the economic crisis. Instead, it washes the middle class down the drain. McCain’s plan gives massive tax giveaways to CEOs and mega-corporations while leaving working families out in the cold. At a time when our economy is bleeding jobs, McCain also opposes investment in infrastructure spending, which would create good jobs and help put our economy back on solid footing.

    As the first union to endorse Barack Obama for the presidency, the UA looked long and hard at which candidates would put the needs of all the Joes in America first. Barack Obama has a plan to cut taxes for working people while investing in good jobs and lifting wages. Unlike McCain’s, Obama’s outrage for the middle class is real. He will turn us in a new direction, not keep us on the same, tired old path of the Bush years.
