FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – Following renewed efforts by the Service Employees International Union to help McDonald’s workers unionize, presidential candidate John Delaney releases the following statement:
“As the son of a union worker, I fully support the right of McDonald’s workers to unionize. Unions create safe work environments and fight for the rights of all workers. My father’s union played a big part in ensuring that our family always had food in our fridge, clothes on our back, and good health care. Our union was a family and I am so grateful for their support. But for a scholarship funded by my father’s union, I would not have been able to afford to attend Columbia University. I pray that every American family is afforded the opportunities that I have been blessed to receive, many of those are a direct result of growing up in a union family.”
