My late father was a steelworker at Bethlehem Steel Corporation. He instilled in me "a fair day's work for a fair day's pay". Unions are the backbone of our middle class, they ensure that workers' voices are being heard. In these days of a Covid-19, workers need to know that they are protected from illness or death.
While there are shortages in workers, safety must remain a top priority. I will fight to end the push for the union busting legislation known as Right to Work. Right to Work does not help, protect or elevate workers, it just gives big corporations leeway to treat their employees unfairly and strip away worker rights to collective bargaining. I was raised on American Steel and will always be loyal to the labor movement.
