I wholeheartedly support unions.
Historically, unions have had an enormous impact on the improvement of worker’s conditions — this is something Americans should be immensely proud of. Today we are facing some of the biggest threats to the middle class; the attack on unions is one of them. In the face of growing corporate power, consolidation of money in the upper echelons of companies, and dismantling of worker’s access to affordable benefits, unions stand as the strongest force to protect the individuals working tirelessly to provide a safe and comfortable life for their families. While we witness one of the largest strikes in our history, media has turned a blind eye to this amazing effort – this is telling of the fight unions and those who support them are undergoing.
I will work to continue the fight to strengthen in Congress and protect all unions. Without them, we lose the ability to protect our best interests.
