The Teamsters and its union brethren have been standing up for American workers for more than 100 years. Those efforts, however, can sometimes feel like screaming into the wind.
Increasingly, corporations and their billionaire allies like the Koch Brothers are tilting the playing field by doling out buckets of cash to lawmakers in an effort to push through a big business agenda that favors tax breaks for rich companies over increased wages for hardworking taxpayers. Fat donor checkbooks seem to take a priority over good public policy.

But there are still good people serving in or seeking elective office who arenít ignoring U.S. workers. They see the nation hurting from a decrease in middle-class paying jobs. They know change is needed to spur the government to invest in infrastructure and American manufacturing to create better jobs and a better nation.
