Also this clip is refreshing because here we have a politician who grew up blue collar and who gets it. It seems to me that he hasn't forgotton his
roots and is in touch with the people who he serves. It's nice to see that on local levels we still have some representitves looking out for us.
Also I think his points about the the unions are valid. Although the unions haven't been perfect they certainly have provided US workers a quality
life. Not only for union workers but it also helped raise the bar for non union workers over the years. If you think wages outside the industry are
bad now, wait until we have a country with no unions that set a standard. Once the union are gone we will all be working for even less peanuts
regardless of what industry you are in.. Becareful for what you wish for. Which is sad because over the last few months I've seen quite the hatred
and jelousy for union workers based on what they should be making vs other industries.
Remember, this is exactly what the Feds are banking on, class warefare. Another divide and conquer tatic.
