Democrats nominees threaten to boycott debate over labor dispute

All seven Democratic presidential candidates who have qualified for next week’s primary debate are threatening to boycott it over a labor dispute. The group says it stands in solidarity with a union that plans to protest outside the debate’s venue. The union of food service workers, Unite Here Local 11, are fighting for better wages and benefits.

If you really care about workers then the leftist candidates ought to boycott the November 2020 election.

We all know it's because they all suck and they all know none of them are strong candidates so there's no real reason to continue. They are just using it as an excuse to skip out in Hope's of preventing themselves looking like a fool....again.

Smart move. If they hold the debate on the same day as the Star Wars opening they will be badly embarrassed by the poor viewership. Especially since the only people still interested in Star Wars are leftists.

So people won't have to be bored listening to Democrats droning on? Sounds like a win to me.

If you think that's the only problem the city's got then I can only conclude you got some LA Heroin in your system.

Where's "the greatest jobs president" on this? Oh yeah, I guess he hasn't realized there are actual people making his McDonald's. It's issues like this that makes it so important to get a president like Bernie or Warren. That's the only way to protect the working class from Trump and his rich associates.

All elebenty candidates agreed to boycott the debate? Really? How... spontaneous of them all. Sounds coordinated, like maybe the DNC is trying to use this to drum up drama for increased viewership.
