Issue Position: Protecting the Right to Organize

Issue Position

I believe that giving workers the ability to bargain for better wages and benefits is an integral part of strengthening America's middle class and rebuilding our economy. On average, union workers earn 30 percent more than their nonunion counterparts and nearly 80 percent of union workers have health care benefits. Union workers are also far more likely to have pensions than their nonunion counterparts when they retire. This is why I'm a strong supporter of the Employee Free Choice Act, which overhauls out-dated labor laws that heavily favor owners and managers by increasing penalties for businesses who illegally retaliate against workers who attempt to form a union.
