Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Tom Steyer and Sen. Bernie Sanders all participated and are currently still running for office. “America faces a momentous political choice, against a backdrop of escalating inequality and the ongoing erosion of workers’ rights,” said Guardian US editor John Mulholland. “The fact that CEO compensation has risen by 940% over the last 40 years while workers’ pay has risen by 12% in the same period is an outrage. Workers are getting a terrible deal and this type of capitalism simply isn’t working for millions of workers. We are pleased to partner with the Teamsters union to host a special town hall event where workers' voices will be heard." See where the candidates stand on worker's issues. On Election Day, November 3, 2020, please remember to stand with the candidate who most stands up for worker's rights.
