Biden Celebrates Unions, U.S. Job Creation

President Joe Biden, often referred to as the most pro-union president in history, emphasized the importance of organized labor and praised American workers for their role in building the economy during a Labor Day appearance in Philadelphia, as reported by Fatima Hussein for the Associated Press (AP).

The Democratic president spoke about the ongoing recovery of the economy from the crippling effects of the coronavirus pandemic and highlighted his administration's efforts to fund infrastructure improvements.


He also emphasized the significance of unions in building the middle class. Biden is working to regain support among working-class voters who shifted their allegiance from Democrats to former President Donald Trump and others.



Biden previewed this argument by frequently referring to Trump as "the last guy" and comparing Trump's job creation record to that of President Herbert Hoover, who presided over the country during the Great Depression and was soundly defeated by Franklin D. Roosevelt.


Regarding Trump, who is currently the leading Republican candidate in the polls, Biden remarked, "He left office with fewer jobs in America than when he was elected."

Biden addressed a diverse audience of union members from various industries, ranging from steelworkers to stagehands, and focused on how his administration's policies have positively impacted working people.


"This Labor Day, we’re celebrating jobs, good-paying jobs, jobs you can raise a family on, union jobs," Biden told the crowd. Instead of remaining at the podium, the president held the microphone in his hand and walked around the stage behind signs that read "UNION STRONG."

Labor Day, a holiday honoring workers, falls this year against the backdrop of increasingly empowered US unions of all kinds and the potential for a strike by 146,000 United Auto Workers union members. Biden expressed his belief that a strike is unlikely to occur.
