Love this shirt.

So it was 38 days out from the election, a late September Saturday, and I had the day off. Cheers to my union, IBEW Local #777. This is a rather new development in campaigns, where organizers now have union contracts and rights. It hasn’t yet been scaled correctly for political work, but it’s a good development and our union is doing a fine job. On the Biden campaign itself I was a Teamster, with the PA Dems I’m an Electrical Worker, and I’ve been a member of the Campaign Worker’s Guild since 2018. I love unions and I’m proud to be a member.

Of course, something else happened today that will harm the rights of workers to organize for years to come- right-wing radical jurist Amy Coney Barrett was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court. Much has been made of her awful beliefs on LGBTQ rights, voting rights, abortion rights, and a range of social issues, and it should be. It’s also important to note how bad ACB would be for working people. She will kill labor organizing rights, health care, consumer protections, consumer protections, and all regulations that protect us from corporate excess. I am not attacking ACB for her family, faith, or other strange personal alignments. I’m attacking her for her crazy judicial beliefs.

That’s all for this one. I’ll have Day 37 up in an hour or two…
