Thank you, Communications Workers of America

As the son of a union power line worker, I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Communications Workers of America's Pacific Northwest Labor Council.

Here is what they have to say about my campaign:

On behalf of the Communications Workers of America's Pacific Northwest Labor Council, we would like to congratulate you on receiving our endorsement for Representative of Washington's 2nd Congressional District.

The CWA Pacific Northwest Labor Council voted to endorse your candidacy based on your commitment to the issues most important to working families.

I grew up in a union household and know firsthand the benefits of union membership. Our family had health insurance. My father earned a decent wage, and his union negotiated cost-of-living wage increases. He saved money for retirement, so he and my mother did not have to worry about their aging years. And, all of us kids had the opportunity to go to college. In short, my father's union membership afforded him the dignity that all workers deserve.

Growing up in a union household is one of the reasons I stand steadfastly with unions today. Decades of corporate assaults on unions has led to declining union membership. This assault on unions is, quite simply, an assault on American workers. It is no coincidence that declining union membership has gutted the middle class. I am running for Congress to restore power to our unions and stem the tide of economic disparity. Chip in $5 today to tip the economic scale back towards workers.

Our economy favors those at the top – at the expense of workers everywhere. Americans today save less because wages do not keep pace with the costs of housing, food, and gas. Medical debt and student loan debt have decimated an entire generation's economic prospects.

That is why our campaign seeks to kick special interests out of politics with our local grassroots movement. Donate $5 today and join our movement to reclaim our politics from special interests and balance our economic scales.
