Received this e-mail today from former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams’ (D. GA) gubernatorial campaign:
My name is Eric Robertson and I’m a proud member of Teamsters Local 728 – a Georgia-based union with over 9,000 members who work for UPS, freight and trucking companies, and in the growing film industry.
There’s a reason why Stacey Abrams has earned the support of Georgia workers and unions – more than any other candidate in this race.
Teamsters stands with Stacey Abrams because she has always stood with Georgia workers, even helping us fight wage theft when no one else would…
Sometimes, companies hire folks, treat them like full-time employees, then classify them as “independent contractors.” That way, employers can cheat workers out of their hard-earned benefits – unemployment benefits, workers’ compensation, Social Security – and push already struggling families further behind.
Not only is this wrong, but it also hurts Georgia’s economy. When working families can’t get ahead or prepare for their futures, their communities suffer. Stacey Abrams is fighting to fix that.
Stacey Abrams has a plan to build a Georgia where workers get the paycheck they have earned, and where every family can succeed – not just survive. Add your name to stand with Stacey and Georgia working families.
From her time as Minority Leader in the Georgia House to her run for governor, Stacey Abrams has stood up for workers and fought for what is right.
I hope you will stand with her today, too:
Teamsters Local 728
