The Candidate We Have Always Deserved

If you are a worker or poor person in this country, then Bernie Sanders is your candidate. I come from a family of sharecroppers, domestic workers, retail employees, postal workers, and sanitation workers. Their work was directly connected to their quality of life. My maternal grandfather, a sanitation worker, left very early every morning and got home late. My grandfather retired at the age of 64, and one year later he died. Sanitation workers have a dangerous and stressful job. As a union organizer, I hear stories every day of workers not being valued, being overworked and underpaid. The working class and poor deserve better. We deserve Bernie Sanders.
