NH AFL-CIO PRESIDENT BRACKETT'S STATEMENT
ON HILLARY CLINTON ENDORSEMENT
HOOKSETT—New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett released the following statement on the organization’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
“The choice in this election is stark. Hillary Clinton has fought for American families and their ability to make ends meet throughout her career in public service. She knows that workers are the backbone of our country and her commitment to our nation’s working men and women is reflected in her record of fighting for higher wages, better workplace protections, and the elimination of the wage gap.”
“On the other hand, Donald Trump is a fraud who has actively worked to stiff his own employees in order to make himself richer. He gets up in front of crowds and makes them believe that he will fight for them. When in reality, we know that he has spent his life stepping on whoever he needed to promote and elevate himself–even when it meant lying and taking from working folks. I am proud that the AFL-CIO is supporting a candidate like Hillary Clinton who will work to build an economy that works for all of us.”
