After the Labor Day holiday each year, Americans start to focus more on election options and issues with the end of summer activities, coronavirus notwithstanding! This year, Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden used the opportunity of a Labor Day livestream discussion with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka to promise that unions will never have a better friend in the Oval Office than he if elected President in November. The former Vice President also used the call to endorse a national minimum wage of $15 per hour, to promise a ban on right to work laws (which currently prohibit the forced payment of union dues by non-union members in 27 states), and impose personal penalties (possibly even jail time!) on business executives who obstruct workers from unionizing. Previously, in remarks last month to the biennial convention of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Biden endorsed the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO) which was passed by the democrat-controlled U.S. House earlier this year before dying in the U.S. Senate, currently controlled by the republicans.
