“We need to counter corporate interests“

Mike Wilson

Executive Assistant, United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400

“If people want to continue to have a counterbalance to the forces that are really trying to make this city a place where it’s hard for people who work for a living to live, if we want it to be a place that’s inclusive, if we want it to be a place where people can work, can be members of a labor union, be members of their communities for the long term, then we need an organization like DC Jobs with Justice to counter those forces, counter corporate interests, counter those developer interests and make sure this is a city that’s sustainable for all of us for the long term.”
