Union member: “I’m 45 years old and I’m a member of Local 798, Pipeliners Union. I’ve been a pipeliner for 21 years. This is all I know how to do. The recent administration has taken my livelihood from me and expected me to get a job somewhere else. I’ve got my whole life invested in this.”
Union member: “I was at home, in the camper watching the inauguration happening when my husband called me at 2:00. And he says ‘babe, start packing up the camper, we’re going home’. I said ‘what are you talking about’. He said, ‘Biden shut it down’.
