Matt Caterine | Support Employee Free Choice

On Nov. 4, the people of Virginia sent a loud and clear message to elected officials in Congress: they want leadership that will bring about real change in Washington. Despite misleading attacks from anti-worker special interests, voters elected Mark Warner to work with a pro-worker majority in Congress and a pro-worker president to take a critical step toward reinvigorating the middle class and turning around our crumbling economy.

Through continued support of the Employee Free Choice Act – bipartisan legislation making it easier for workers to form unions – Sen.-elect Mark Warner will help more Americans join and stay in the middle class. Union membership guarantees opportunities for better wages, access to health care, job security and the ability for those who work hard and play by the rules to achieve the American Dream.

I hope as our new U.S. senator, Mark Warner will use this new opportunity, through supporting the Employee Free Choice Act, to create positive change that will affect Virginia’s working families and future generations to come.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
