President Biden expressed his support for labor unions and boasted about Democratic legislative victories during a Wisconsin labor event just two months ahead of the November midterms.
Speaking at Milwaukee Laborfest, the president said Labor Day is “a special day to me as well because the fact of the matter here is I wouldn’t be here without unions! Unions. Electricians, iron workers … teamsters, laborers, bricklayers, transit workers, plumbers and pipefitters, steel workers.”
He also said union support helped propel him to the Senate years ago, saying that “union labor endorsed me and fought for me.”
