Here is noted advocate of labor and working people, Barack Obama offering his support in 2003

“I just want everybody here to know that as long as I am a U.S. Senator, and when I am President of the United States, you are going to have a friend in the White House who believes in making sure that workers can organize a union … who believes in a decent day’s pay for a decent day’s work, who believes in strong pension benefits, who believes in making sure that those people who are in Washington aren’t just looking after the fat cats and the special interests and the lobbyists, but are looking after you and a partner with you,”
