Jim Slattery on Unions and Prevailing Wage

I've been posting a number of clips of US Senate candidate Jim Slattery talking issues with Wichita union members from an informal June 23 meeting. This is one of the most important-- in this clip Slattery emphasizes his long-standing support for the rights of workers to form unions and for prevailing wage legislations which protects a race to the bottom in construction wage.

Only a glitch in my understanding of how to use my video software has delayed.




Correcting the gross imbalances in US labor law in favor of companies should be a top concern for everyone in the libera and progressive community.

But that's a subject for another day.

(See here on Air Force tanker decision and here on why he's running and here on why climate change legislation must be done right.)
