Inside the Mind of a SEIU Political Activist & Insider

Meet Jessica Shearer, Executive Director of the Healthcare Education Project at 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East.

In the 14-minute video below, Ms. Shearer, sitting in a panel discussion (with an unknown Tea Party activist beside her), discusses a variety of topics, such as:

  • The current excitement over the OccupyWallSt movement and what it means to the union movement
  • The inability of unions to motivate their own members
  • The half-empty buses to last year’s One Nation rally
  • The election Barack Obama and the subsequent disappointment on his (and the SEIU’s) “caving” on health care reform
  • The failure of Barack Obama’s Organizing for America to realize its potential
  • …and much more

View the video in its entirety. It is an insightful look into the mind of a SEIU activist and insider…a collectivist.
