The End of Walker’s Presidential Pursuit

When the presidential candidate Scott Walker withdrew from the 2016 race on September 21, American workers were able to release a sigh of relief. This was clearly not any union worker or supporter’s choice for our next President of the United States.

Washington Window reported that the Republican had based his “candidacy on hate: Hate of workers and unions.”

What would America be with all the hard-working union men and women who have built this country with their own two hands? Union workers are the heart and soul of the American economy and stability.

Walker ran his campaign on the platform of demanding complete termination of the National Labor Relations Board and ensuring that the United States be union-free.

However, it seems that the former Governor Jerry Huckabee does not seem to be as hostile as his colleagues. He was the only Republican to address the AFL-CIO Executive Council this summer.

“I don’t think it’s fair to think of labor unions as the enemies of the Republican Party. I see them as people who want good jobs,” Huckabee said. “I would leave measures for collective bargaining to the states. I don’t want the federal government telling me what I have to do.”

That should give unions some faith and hope that not all Republicans do not have similar views as Walkers. If all candidates are anti-workers, then there better be a pro-worker Democrat on the ballot.
