Election Day 2014

Tuesday, November 4 is Election Day, TCU members in every state will be affected by the results. If right-wing extremists take over both houses of Congress, then transportation infrastructure, pensions, health care and many other important issues are at risk. And if anti-worker, anti-retiree governors take over state houses, then more issues are at risk, as well. Know your voting place so that you can prevent that from happening?

TTD President Ed Wytkind discussed the midterm elections on America’s Work Force Radio recently. You can listen to the show here.

Races across the country are looking tight, and there’s an enormous amount at stake for workers and for our transportation infrastructure. “The folks that know something about the infrastructure of our country understand that federal stewardship and federal funding is going to get it done, and they also know that we need real funding, not fairy dust,” Ed explains. But “we’ve got an incredible lineup of Republican members running for the Senate that are just awful when it comes to the economy, when it comes to worker rights.” Tune in to learn more about those Republican candidates and why it’s so important that we elect leaders who are willing and able to look to the long term.
