President Biden praises unions

March 8th, 2021

On February 28, as workers at an Amazon plant in Bessemer, Alabama continued voting whether to form a union, President Biden released a 2 ½-minute video extolling the importance of  unions and giving a full-throated endorsement of a worker’s right to collectively bargain.
Biden’s statement not only shows that he is on the side of workers, it is considered the most forceful pro-worker statement made by any president since Franklin Roosevelt.
