detroit, labor day – meet the base ;-)

Text of speech here

President Obama embraces UAW member Ghana Goodwin-Dye who introduced him during a Labor Day speech at Detroit’s Renaissance Center, headquarters of General Motors, Sept. 5

Freep.com: In perhaps some of his strongest words of support for organized labor, President Barack Obama told a riverfront crowd of thousands in Detroit today that “As long as I’m in the White House, I’m going to stand up for collective bargaining.”

He said organized labor is responsible for the rise of the middle class and the core of the nation’s economy and that legislative battles to curb the rights of organized labor is a threat to the nation as a whole.

“When I hear they’re trying to take collective bargaining away, trying to pass right to work laws, I know it’s not about economics it’s about politics,” he said, prompting a chant from the crowd of “Four more years.”
