As patriots, we take great pride in the notion of our people having a voice. Labor unions provide a voice for workers and are the reason that we have achieved many gains. From the 8 hour work day, job safety, worker protections to ending child labor. They provide a safe work environment and promote livable wages. Unions are the backbone of our workforce and we need to make sure that we do whatever we can to strengthen our Unions and ensure they have a seat at the table when finding employment and economic solutions.
