David Gill started working as a dishwasher when he was 13 to help support his family after his father died. He worked his way through college stocking shelves and through medical school mopping floors at a laundromat in the middle of the night. He knows what it's like to work hard to make ends meet.

avid Gill believes that American workers are under assault from bad trade deals that favor corporate CEOs over protecting jobs and corporate attempts to take away critical rights won through generations of struggle.

David Gill proudly supports the democratic right of American workers to join or form a union. He will work in Congress to protect collective bargaining rights for American workers and support union efforts to organize more workers across the country. He will fight Republican plans to undermine workplace safety regulations and he'll stand up to attempts to de-fund OSHA and the NLRB.
