Statement by Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale on President Biden’s visit to Superior on March 2, 2022:
It’s an honor to welcome President Biden to Superior today to talk about Wisconsin infrastructure needs and the many ways the President’s historic bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will create and expand good-paying jobs and economic opportunity for Wisconsin workers.
This once-in-a-generation investment will build an economy that truly works for working people. Infrastructure investment means quality jobs and long-term competitiveness for our state and nation. Wisconsin’s union workers are ready to begin fixing our bridges, maintaining our roads, updating broadband services, replacing harmful lead laterals and doing the other critical work included in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
President Biden knows that strong unions underpin the strength of our American middle class and as President he is committed to doing all that he can to support a worker’s right to join a union. Working people powered our communities through the pandemic and working people stand ready to work together with the Biden-Harris Administration to propel our economy to new heights with living wages, good jobs, and unions for all.
