Hoffa: 'They are out to take away your jobs'

Hoffa, live tonight.
Whoa! Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa was fired up tonight on "The War Room with Jennifer Granholm."

Appearing live on Current TV, he told the former Michigan governor that we've never had the extremism that we have today:
You don't have a choice. They are out to take away your jobs.
He condemned the influence of money in politics:
Unions are made up of millions of people. They have a handful of people and they are going to outspend 13 million working people. That's wrong.
The way to counter that influence is to organize, he said.
We are organizing in every state to end the gridlock we have now.
Stay tuned. We'll continue to keep you posted on Teamsters fighting the war on workers at the ballot box.
