Today, in a historic first for a sitting U.S. president, Pres. Biden joined United Auto Workers in Michigan on the front lines of their strike. Groundwork Collaborative’s Director of Policy and Research Bilal Baydoun released the following statement:
“By joining striking workers, President Biden sent a clear message that our economy works best when workers are driving it forward. The administration’s strong support for unions and historic public investments have empowered workers to stand up for better wages and economic security as corporations continue to rake in record profits.
“The surge in labor organizing across the country is a win for our economy because workers power our economy.”
