Workers’ groups must fight to stay strong against 'king': Letter to the Editor

Posted

My ancestor fought in the Revolutionary War as a private and I also served same rank.

Two of his genes were passed onto me. We will not bow to a king. The king’s new tax plan will open the floodgates for funding to those politicians and associations that want to weaken, or in fact, eliminate associations that represent workers. They know full well the effect will be to eliminate the standard for wages, benefits and working conditions for workers in our society.

We, the workers, will continue to serve with or without bone spurs. We are aware that regardless of your wealth or social status, we are equal in the voting booth.

United we will prevail. We will not be divided by wedge issues.

I’m a proud 48-year member of Local 520 United Association.
