I’m Michele Wherley and I’m Running in the 41st Because We Can Do Better.
As a citizen and a candidate, I’m proud to stand with working Americans.

Unions play an integral role in raising workers’ wages, reducing racial and gender disparities in employee pay and resolving workplace conflicts. ALL workers benefit from union representation accomplishments and this ruling is another attempt at union busting. This rule will add to middle class wage stagnation and
