  Labor Unions: Our Past, Present, and Future


The Historical Backbone of Workers’ Rights Labor unions have been the cornerstone of workers’ rights, emerging from the shadows of the Industrial Revolution as a beacon of hope for exploited workers. They rose as a collective voice against inhumane working conditions, unjust wages, and unregulated work hours. Historic achievements like the eight-hour workday and the end of child labor in factories are testaments to their enduring legacy.


In today’s rapidly evolving labor market, unions are more relevant than ever. Despite technological advancements and economic growth, workers still face issues like unfair labor practices, inadequate wages, and unsafe working conditions. Unions continue to play a pivotal role in advocating for fair labor standards, ensuring that the progress made over decades is not eroded. 


The impact of unions is evident in numerous landmark changes. For instance, the United Auto Workers’ strike against General Motors in 2019 led to significant wage increases and improved job security. The Fight for $15 movement, primarily driven by unions, has been instrumental in raising the minimum wage across several states. These victories exemplify the power of collective action in bringing about substantial improvements for workers.


As part of my campaign, I propose the following legislative initiatives to strengthen workers’ rights:

• Worker Protection Act: This act will ensure job security and enforce fair treatment, including adequate notice of termination and severance pay.

• Fair Wages Bill: We aim to increase the minimum wage and tie it to inflation, ensuring a living wage for all workers.

• Gig Economy Workers’ Rights Law: This law will extend essential labor rights to gig economy workers, securing their access to health insurance, workers’ compensation, and retirement benefits.

• Union Empowerment Act: This act will reinforce collective bargaining rights, simplify the process of joining unions, and protect union activities from employer retaliation.


Also address employee misclassification issues. Currently some who should be employees are being paid as 1099 and employer keeps more profit in pocket.


The journey of labor unions is a narrative of struggle, resilience, and triumph. As we navigate the complexities of the modern workforce, their role remains indispensable. Through these proposed legislative measures, we aim to honor the legacy of labor unions and ensure a fair, just, and equitable workplace for all. Join me in this endeavor to uphold the rights and dignity of every worker and union in our nation.
