Quoted @POTUS

Workers in Alabama – and all across America – are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace. It’s a vitally important choice – one that should be made without intimidation or threats by employers.

Every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union.

Replying to @Marie4Congress: It’s about time America had a @POTUS who recognizes every worker’s right to organize.

While we’re at it, let’s ensure…

The fact any union anywhere ever wins an election is kind of a miracle, given the state of US labor law and labor law enforcement.

Let’s pass the #PROAct and change that.

Amazon already pays its employees a $15/hr. minimum wage but some of its employees in Bessemer, Alabama want better working conditions according to @RWDSU President Stuart Appelbaum, who also welcomed Sunday's tweet from President Biden supporting the workers' right to choose.

With the creation of the nation’s first offshore wind farm, @GovRaimondo demonstrated that investing in clean energy does not mean sacrificing good union jobs.

A bold, progressive Governor, Raimondo invested in a wide range of infrastructure projects that supported the creation of good family sustaining jobs with wages and benefits that provided a pathway to the middle class.

We are confident that @GovRaimondo will bring the same leadership qualities that produced one of the nation’s fastest growing economies, while supporting the rights of workers to have a voice on the job, to the task of being the next U.S. Secretary of Commerce.

Raimondo also became a national leader in her response to the #COVID19 pandemic and supported an increase in the state’s minimum wage.

The AFL-CIO urges Senate support for the confirmation of RI Governor @GinaRaimondo as the U.S. Sec'y of Commerce. Gov. Raimondo has a proven record of economic leadership that created economic opportunity and tens of thousands of good paying jobs for all Rhode Islanders.

✅100% COBRA would provide a life-changing assistance to hundreds of thousands of laid-off housekeepers, dishwashers, and other hospitality workers we represent—and millions of other Americans who have lost health insurance due to pandemic layoffs.

It’s about time America had a @POTUS who recognizes every worker’s right to organize.

While we’re at it, let’s ensure those rights are protected by passing the PRO Act.
