The following statement can be attributed to Héctor Figueroa, President of 32BJ SEIU.
“Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation is a slap in the face to all women and a threat to all working families. While Brett Kavanaugh lied repeatedly to the American people, he has been consistent about one thing: loudly and strongly standing up for corporations and against working people.
“Brett Kavanaugh has made his disrespect for women, his political agenda and his lack of temperament crystal clear over the last week. But what is just as disturbing is his record on the bench over the last couple decades. Brett Kavanaugh will be a vote in favor of the wealthy and powerful and could support rulings that take away our unions, leave millions without healthcare and limit who can vote.
“Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation shows that those in power only care about protecting their own power; even if it means lying, ignoring sexual assault and degrading women. Voters will have the last say on November 6.”
