Organized labor is important to me and my family. My father-in-law had an 8th-grade education. But because of the United Auto Workers (UAW), he was able to earn an honest wage for his hard work and provide his kids with more opportunity than he had.
That's how it's supposed to work! If you work hard and play by the rules, the next generation is supposed to have more opportunity.
But the middle class is under assault by politicians like Romney, Ryan and my opponent Bobby Schilling. In Congress, I will be a passionate advocate for workers and middle class families, and I will make job creation my #1 priority.
