THROOP -- About four blocks from where Republicans are holding a rally for Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, a group of Democrats and labor leaders staged a protest in Lackawanna County.
The rally outside a union hall in Throop included members of three different unions.
Drew Simpson of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters union says a Trump victory would cost jobs and be a crushing blow to working people in northeastern and central Pennsylvania.
“The fact is, Donald Trump has a hypocritical and embarrassing history of outsourcing jobs and making Trump-branded products overseas, while claiming to fight for American workers,” Simpson said.
Simpson also believes a Trump victory could mean more conservative supreme court justices whose rulings would favor corporations and businesses over employees.
