Political Action Committee
If not for labor unions, there would be no organized voice for working people in the political process. Virtually every special interest group has political action committees who help elect sympathetic candidates and make sure their voices are heard by government decision-makers. Wealthy individuals like the Koch Brothers spend hundreds of millions of dollars trying to influence the political process, and you can be sure their interests do not align with yours! These are the same people who want to end labor unions through “right to work for less” laws, fund the Tea Party extremists, eliminate prevailing wage and project labor agreements, and make it harder for average citizens to vote.
We have always known we may not be able to match corporate spending dollar for dollar. However, if we support our political fund, educate, and motivate our members, we can elect labor friendly candidates and keep our friends in office.
