    The Ghost of Jimmy Hoffa
    01/17/20 - Pennsylvania Federation BMWED-IBT
    The Ghost of Jimmy Hoffa By David Macaray | CounterPunch | Following is an article from one of our favorite magazine journals, CounterPunch, a periodical chocked with deep-seated investigative reporting that speaks to progressive politics and civil liberties. Lately there has been so much hype surrounding the the life and death of Jimmy Hoffa. The Martin Scorsese Netflix movie “The Irishman” attempts to chart the events of the day Hoffa disappeared in a way that you somehow yield to them not as a flight of fancy but as the reconstruction of an established truth. This author felt necessary to put facts into perspective, removing Scorsese’s glamorization of one-time Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa and identifying the union and it’s leadership for what it was - corrupt, anti-democratic and dirty.
