‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR DECEMBER 16, 2022: Railroad Workers and Supporters Rally on Capitol Hill and Across the Country to Have More than One Sick Day a Year … With Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and more…

Two weeks after Congress disgraced itself by denying freight railroad workers seven days of sick leave, workers and their supporters rallied on Capitol Hill and across the country for what they said is a basic human right. The denial of these rights to workers was made by rich, corporate lawmakers who have unlimited sick days and platinum health care plans paid for by the tax dollars of the American people.

Voices: Rail workers, labor leaders, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Jamaal Bowman.
