Recognition where recognition is due

From the Washington Post:

Vice President Harris on Friday credited hospitality workers who mobilized supporters in Georgia, Nevada and Arizona with helping Democrats win the White House in 2020.

“It is because of your work and your support that Joe Biden is president of the United States and I am the first woman elected vice president,” Harris told members of Unite Here, which represents hospitality workers. “I’m really clear about how we got here.”

Harris made the remarks during a speech at Unite Here gathering in New York. The union recently elected Gwen Mills as their new president, the first woman to hold that position in the organization’s 130-year history.

Harris told the group that presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and his allies work from a playbook to “make people feel alone, to make people feel small.

“But in the face of these attacks,” Harris said, “we here know the power of the collective.”

Truth! Four years later, the union will be there ditching Donnie again.
