WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV), a member of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP), released the following statement after attending the annual Nevada AFL-CIO Legislative Virtual Conference.
“I appreciate everything that the AFL-CIO does to fight for Nevada’s working families,” said Senator Rosen. “Nevada’s union members keep our economy going. It is critical we ensure that past and present union members are getting the benefits and pensions they have earned. I was proud to address today’s AFL-CIO virtual conference about the importance of strengthening workers’ rights, raising the minimum wage, preventing pay discrimination, and ensuring workers’ futures. I will continue working in Congress to improve the lives of workers in Nevada and across the nation, as well as fight for the respect, dignity, and support they deserve.”
