Democrats for Change to hear Lehigh Valley labor leader speak
Gregg Potter, President of the Lehigh Valley Central Labor Council, will speak on Tuesday, March 26 at the Carbon County Democrats for Change meeting. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. (ending no later than 8:30 p.m.) and will be held at the Inn at Jim Thorpe.
Club President Linda Christman said, "We are excited that Gregg Potter will be able to talk with us about the attacks on union labor in our own state. Gregg is a knowledgeable speaker who really connects with his audience."
She pointed out that all households in states where unions are strong make an average of $5,600 more per year than in states where unions are weakened by so-called "right to work" laws.
