Hundreds of steelworkers and union members rallied in Green Bay to kickoff Get Out the Vote weekend on Wednesday. USW International President Leo Gerard, USW District 2 Director Michael Bolton and Wisconsin AFL-CIO officers joined hundreds of workers who gathered to get energized and fired up to hit neighborhoods to talk with voters.
Gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke met with workers and addressed the crowd. The enthusiasm was electric as we head into the final election stretch before Election Day. Working people are working overtime to remind voters to get to the polls and participate in our democracy on Nov. 4.
“This election is about whether we have a Governor who cares about the things working people care about or if we get a Governor that doesn’t care about people at all,” said USW President Leo Gerard. “This is a Governor who couldn’t even say he supports a minimum wage. This is a Governor who wants to dictate and take rights away. He wants to take away the right to collective bargaining, the right to health care, the right to vote, the right to a decent wage, to a decent job – all these things he doesn’t care about.”
