All of the Democratic presidential candidates who have qualified for next weeks debate say they will skip the event rather than cross a planned picket line at the venue.
The seven candidates -- Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang -- all said Friday that they would not show up for the debate at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles next Thursday if the Unite Here Local 11 goes forward with its protest of food service contractor Sodexo SA.
The union, which represents about 150 Sodexo employees at the LMU campus, reached out to the campaigns on Friday to inform them they planned to demonstrate. The union and the food-services company have been negotiating for months but their talks stalled this week.

Well, that’s one way to get out of it, given that the dog ate my homework doesn’t work.
Cool. Don’t do the debate. Spare us all the torture.
I’m sure that they have plenty of Wigwam Flipping to do.
Just ask them...
Or mopping up US Aid kickback $$$ in Kiev...
The Union Local will show their fealty to the Democrats and agree to postpone their protests and strike.
What if they have a debate and no one came? We are about to find out.
“”””””””Truth is...nobody is watching them anyway.””””””
You are SO wrong.
DOZENS of people watch these debates. One for each candidate at least.
Dems: anything to get out of work.
The Democrats don’t see the irony of this.
They support “free” college for everyone.
So who is supposed to pay these Sodexo workers the higher wages.
You, that is who.
First time in my life I am supporting a union strike.
Their moms hit the hardest!
Trump should attend...
No impeachment questions please.
Do they mean the “DUHbait”? Would anyone notice?
Think the headline will read Clown Show Canceled due to Union Strike or Union Strikes to Stop Clown Show ?
I don’t have cable, so I guess I won’t be missing much.
It must suck to be so invested in group politics that you can be paralyzed by it like this.
I think the debate re-entry module and it's crew have lost their heat shields and are burning out on re-entry. Pitchforks and ropes sure can go low tech and destroy any mission.
Darn. I was really hoping to see Biden challenge Bernie to see who could do the most squat thrusts
