HILLARY IN HAITI-Video: Delivering Pep Talk to Sweatshop Workers

Posted on April 19, 2009

As the video shows, during Hillary Clinton’s recent visit to Haiti, she gave a pep talk to sweatshop workers (in the Dominican Republic, she did a town hall meeting – that must have taken forever with translation and all).  By the look on the faces of the workers, Hillary’s announcement of even more $5 a day sweatshop jobs did not impress.

In addition, Hillary gave her speech in English which was translated into French which none of the workers understood because they speak Haitian kreyol.  The Ugly American, indeed.
