UFCW Endorses Mark Murphy

Announcing its endorsement of Mark Murphy for Congress in the race for NY-11, UFCW Local 1500, which represents 30,000 supermarket and retail food workers in New York City, sharply criticized Republican incumbent Michael Grimm as the puppet of wealthy special interests.

UFCW spokesperson Patrick Purcell called Murphy the candidate who will fight hardest for its members.

While Murphy understands the priorities of working people, he said, Grimm, who has voted for tax breaks and legal loopholes for corporations, and against Social Security and Medicare, is a Mitt Romney wannabe. 

Accepting the endorsement, Murphy, who advocates increasing the federal minimum wage, noted that retail is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the US economy.
