  1. Most of us are the product of men and women who worked very hard and then organized to create fairness and a voice for laborers. The little People are the engine of this country as seen during the Pandemic which still is taking lives more everyday.

    1. We can start with matching it with inflation, which if it had been automatically readjusted that way from its inception, it would be between $23 – $24/hour today.

  2. Maybe honor his name by actually covering the labor movement positively and not running cover for your corporate backers, their bought politicians and their abuses of working people of this country. Do better or this is all theater.

  3. You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him. –Goethe

  4. Millions of good paying Union job’s where lost under his leadership. Billionaires loved him so much. Sold out our working classes across America. Thanks alot

  5. You mean the guy who put union support behind a billionaire in 2016? Pass, we warned him Trump would ship more jobs abroad and USMCA does exactly that.

  6. I watched this guy on a couple of TV interviews just 5 or 6 days ago. One never knows unfortunately.
