A Man for the Workers- Paul Wellstone

  • Wellstone was dedicated to rewriting labor laws to strengthen the ability of unions to organize. Some details in this briefing from a union website.

  • Wellstone on the terrorism against union leaders in the state of Columbia.
  • Wellstone bitterly condemned Bush's repeal of corporate responsibility rules for government contractors.
  • Wellstone (with Jesse Helms!) fought and won a battle to condition trade on ending abuses of child labor.

  • And so much more...
