PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — At least 50 seats in the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers hall were empty when President Obama took the stage Tuesday to pitch the jobs plan.

Allegheny County Labor Council President Jack Shea said he misjudged the seating capacity and didn’t invite enough people.

NewsRadio 1020 KDKA host Robert Mangino spoke with Associate Professor of Political Science of Muhlenberg College Chris Borick, on why the President’s audience was so bare.
