The Executive Board of the Maine AFL-CIO voted to endorse Emily Cain for Congress based on her long record of support for workers' issues and economic fairness.
"Maine people know that the economy is out of balance. Too many politicians continue to prioritize the demands of Wall Street CEOs over the needs of working families. Emily has a long and strong record of standing with working people.
"In Congress, Emily Cain will work hard to raise wages for Maine’s working families and to build an economy that works for all, not just the wealthy few. On issues like workers' rights, workplace safety, retirement security and unfair trade policies that are devastating our communities, we don't have to ask Emily twice where she stands - she's with Maine working families. We look forward to working to elect Emily Cain to Congress this November," said Cynthia Phinney, President of the Maine AFL-CIO.
The Maine AFL-CIO, a federation of unions representing 40,000 Maine workers, works to improve the lives and working conditions of all working people in Maine.
"I am honored to earn the endorsement of the Maine AFL-CIO. They deserve a US Representative who works as hard as the people of their member unions, and one who will fight to create jobs, strengthen the middle class and ensure the American Dream is accessible for everyone. I am looking forward to winning this seat back in November and working with the AFL-CIO as Maine’s member of Congress from the 2nd district,” said Former State Senator and House Minority Leader, Emily Cain.
