After working 18 years as an ironworker, Congressman Stephen Lynch knows you can’t live the American Dream without a decent job, and that unions represent a loud and critical voice for workers and their families.
Stephen is now running for United States Senate because he believes that every working family deserves someone fighting for them – and he will be that voice.
If elected, Stephen Lynch will be the first card-carrying union leader to enter the U.S. Senate in our country’s history. In Congress, Stephen fought for the first minimum wage increase in a decade. He founded and continues to lead the Congressional Labor and Working Families Caucus, and opposed attempts to weaken unions by fighting against efforts to make it harder to petition for a union election. Stephen recently co-sponsored legislation to increase the Federal minimum wage, because he believes the our minimum wage should be a livable wage. ￼
Stephen has a record of standing up for working families – and he will continue to do so in the United States Senate.
