05/23 SEIU Rally in Salem and 'Halliburton awards'

The local branch of the Service Employees International Union held a rally in Salem today in which they handed out their annual Halliburton awards to commemorate government privatization gone bad.
The union, one of the largest unions for public sector employees, is pushing for legislation that would put an end to the privatization of public services.
The ‘awards’ they issued today are named for Halliburton, a company formerly headed by Dick Cheney, and currently one of the largest contractors in Iraq.
Sonia Reichwein was at the rally in Salem, and spoke with KBOO news
