Rebecca Otto is running for Minnesota governor as a far-left, pro-union, Bernie Sanders-inspired candidate – but when it comes to her own campaign, her actions don’t match her words. Democrat Erin Murphy’s campaign became the first gubernatorial campaign in the country to unionize, but both Rebecca Otto and Tim Walz have refused to unionize their own staff.
Asked directly whether campaigns should unionize, Otto replied “I don’t know.” Watch here.
QUESTION: Do you think campaign workers should be unionized?
OTTO: I don’t know.
What do members of the labor movement have to say about Rebecca Otto’s snub of unions? And will Tim Walz answer the same simple question – should campaign workers unionize?
