Democrat Sherrod Brown brought a pro-worker message Saturday to Las Vegas casino workers who are members of whats considered Nevadas most powerful labor union, declaring that if he decides to run for president, he will be the most pro-union candidate.
Brown, a U.S. senator from Ohio, said hes going to make a decision about 2020 in the next month. He addressed workers in the union hall of the Culinary Union as he kicked off a trip to the early Western caucus state, which is seen as a key test of a candidates appeal to diverse demographics.
Brown is the first potential or announced 2020 candidate to hold an event this year with the housekeepers, bartenders and others in the heavily Latino union, though other contenders have had private meetings with union leaders in recent months. [ ]
The senator said that if he were elected president, one of his first acts would be to meet with the leaders of the countrys biggest banks and biggest high-rise buildings and urge them to pay their custodians, security guards and food service workers $15 an hour.

Unions are dying, and anyone who wants jobs will support Trump.
This guy is a class A moron loser
Why not just say anti-business and make all of the little Marxists happy?
Does he mean the most pro union new green deal candidate? Even union leadership should run from this. At minimum leadership needs a small percentage of current membership to keep their jobs so the union bosses get paid.
Also, a Massengill...
Will he also promise to lead the search to find Jimmy Hoffa?
He’ll be making Kasich the 2nd biggest dumbass from Ohio. Well maybe tied for it.
So he's like the rest of the Democrats running for President.
He says that like its a good thing.
This guy won’t even get a sniff from RAT primary voters.
I can’t stand to listen to that scratchy dying voice of his.
Yep, hes one of my senators. **spit**
Sherrod Brown is a communist in a dhimmicrap burqua .
Looking to tap into some money
Government & teachers unions are still going strong and that’s where the money is. The Democrats and the teacher’s unions for example conspire against the taxpayers during their “negotiations” and in exchange for fat contracts the unions kick back political donations and put boots on the ground for the Democrats every election. The teacher’s unions can also by relied on to declare every Republican proposal as war against our children and every Democrat proposal as necessary to save our children!It’s time we stood up and said if you work for the tax payers in government at any level then it’s a civil SERVICE and as such unions in government are unacceptable.Want to reduce the size of government and get control of spending? Outlaw government unions!
Labor unions already should have been killed off with a repeal of the 1935 Labor Relations Act. It was passed by two overwhelmingly demoncrat-controlled houses (75/15 and 334/88) and signed by America’s first Fascist president. Its primary impact was to exempt unions from the Sherman Anti-Trust Act so they could engage in price fixing, which is exactly what collective bargaining is. There’s no other link in America’s free market system that can price fix legally except unionized labor, so it always has been a hindrance to the exercise of capitalism. It should have been dealt with decades ago.
The tenth plank of communism pushes “(f)ree education for all children in public schools”. Education should be out of the public sector altogether, never mind non-unionized.
Sherrod Brown abandoned the unions under Obama
He is campaigning for VP hoping to rip Ohio away from Trump.
