THE ALABAMA AFL-CIO ENDORSES JAMES AVERHART
Alabama’s First Congressional District Democratic nominee James Averhart received an endorsement from The Alabama American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations.
I would like to thank the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) for their endorsement. I understand that the U.S. labor force is the pillar of our nation’s strength. We must protect and advance the rights and benefits that our labor force needs to work with dignity and create better lives for themselves and their families.
The AFL-CIO mobilizes its members and community partners to advocate for social and economic justice and strive daily to vanquish oppression and make communities better for all people—regardless of race, color, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin. With this being the mission, this organization has the overall goal of improving the lives of working families.
I will be dedicated to advocating for policies to raise wages, increasing job training programs, providing sustainable supports to small businesses, and supporting equal pay for equal work. Working families make up the backbone of our economy. Therefore, it is imperative that working families prosper, so that our country prospers.
