As the report shows, SEIU gives 95 percent of these phony reformers an "F" grade for their anti-worker voting records. Of the 87 Members of the House of Representatives who received an "A" grade from the extremist anti-immigrant group Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in the 110th Congress:
94 percent voted against the Employee Free Choice Act
93 percent against Equal Pay for Women
83 percent against Extending Unemployment Compensation
68 percent against Increasing the Minimum Wage
82 percent against Providing Parental Leave for Federal Employees
Wonk Room Report Exposes Two-Faced Anti-Worker Voting Records Of Staunch Immigration Opponents

What a bunch of hypocrites!
