The American worker is the backbone of our economy and the middle class.
When our leaders don’t support and uplift the middle class we all falter. We should take a hard look at the choices our representative is making — do his votes grow the middle class and build an economy that doesn’t leave them behind?
Last year, Rod Blum called for a recession in Washington, D.C. Apparently, he did not understand the cranes he objected to were part of private development projects that created good-paying, middle-class jobs. It’s disconcerting to have a representative wish unemployment on a city. With votes to ship jobs overseas, take bargaining rights away from hardworking Iowans, and to support contractors who have violated Fair Labor Standards, I think it is clear Blum doesn’t have the best interests of the middle class in mind.
