Hearings began in the Senate last week on President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch.
Gorsuch would be terrible for working people. He’s routinely voted against the interests of working people when it comes to safety on the job and discrimination in the workplace, and has denied workers’ efforts to secure earned wages and benefits.
In the coming years, the Supreme Court is going to be taking up really important cases that will have a huge effect on working people’s right to stand together in a union to improve their workplaces, to fight discrimination in the workplace and be safe on the job. After listening to Gorsuch’s answers during his hearing and reviewing his record, it’s clear he will put the interests of corporations before those of working people.
Working people are among those with the most to lose if he’s appointed. That’s why it’s up to us to stop him.
The petition to the U.S. Senate says the following:
President Trump’s nominee for Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, will put the interests of corporations before those of working people. I urge you to oppose Judge Gorsuch’s nomination and insist on a nominee with a record of respect for the rights of working families.
