The recent attacks on workers' rights are just wrongheaded. We elect our leaders to create jobs, not take away the good jobs that hard-working people already have. Those who attack workers only succeed in slashing the funding that keeps teachers in our classrooms and protects health care for working families and seniors.
I support working with labor to solve problems, build stronger workplaces and give working families a real voice. Unions give workers a voice to express concerns about their safety, security, pay, benefits--and about the best ways to get the work done. Workers deserve a voice in the workplace and we cannot silence hardworking Americans. In Washington, I am fighting to protect the right to organize, expand paid sick leave and keep workers safe.
