Harris Makes the Democrats' Pro-Worker Ticket Even Stronger

On Tuesday, Democratic presidential presumptive nominee Joe Biden announced his selection of Sen. Kamala Harris of California as his vice presidential running mate in the 2020 election.

"Joe Biden's historic choice of Kamala Harris makes a strong, pro-worker ticket even stronger," said CWA President Chris Shelton. "Senator Harris never backs down from a fight, whether it's stopping companies from stealing wages, ensuring that our labor laws cover all workers, or calling out the worst members of the Trump administration and demanding they be held accountable. Donald Trump and his corrupt cronies have failed us, and CWA members will be doing every single thing they can to make sure Joe and Kamala win this fall."

"Kamala Harris is an outstanding choice for Vice President," said District 4 Vice President and CWA Legislative-Political Committee Chair Linda L. Hinton. "CWA members across the country know that she has been there for us when we've asked her to step up. She is a cosponsor of the PRO Act and the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act, and will ensure that the Biden administration makes restoring workers' collective bargaining rights a top priority. She's cosponsored our legislation to protect good call center jobs, as well as the Senate Democrats' bill to build out broadband, create good jobs, and close the digital divide. The Biden-Harris ticket will put the needs of working people first as we recover from this pandemic."
