In this week’s #AbbieForMayor #CoffeeClub I chat about how we celebrate Labor Day. Last year over the Labor Day weekend I spent a chunk of my time reading “The Last Ballad”- a historical fiction about a woman named Ella May Wiggins who led the effort to unionize the textile mills in North Carolina. Ella May Wiggins literally gave her life fighting for your right to organize, bargain and to hold people in positions of power accountable to do what’s best for their employees.
I have always and will continue to stand up tall and fight for working families. At the end of the day, this work is all about answering to the working people. Anyone who would deny the right of workers to organize is a person who does not want to be held accountable.
In that vein, I am truly humbled to announce that I have received the endorsement of the Howard-Tipton chapter of the AFL-CIO. This endorsement means so much to me as it represents faith in me to always put working families first and to fight for workers rights. Racial and social justice are guiding principles of mine that keep me grounded in doing the RIGHT thing- not the EASY thing.
