    I will be joining civil rights and labor leaders tomorrow outside the Nissan Motor Co. plant in Canton, Mississippi, to demand that the automaker respect the rights of workers to form a union. What the workers are doing is a courageous and enormously important effort to improve their lives. Nissan has union representation at 42 out of its 45 plants around the world, but not in Mississippi or Tennessee. The American South should not be treated differently.

    What I have always believed and I think the facts are very clear, is that people who are in a union and can collectively bargain a contract, earn more money and have better working conditions than those who are not in a union. That it just common sense. We have got to end the race to the bottom. Low wages in one state impact workers everywhere. Our job: Stand with workers for better wages, better working conditions and for the right to form a union.
