Long-time Rep. Dingell, a Friend to Workers

The Teamsters are saying goodbye to a long-time friend and champion of workers who made it his mission to be a voice for those who too often didn’t have one in the halls of Congress.

Retired Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), 92, the “Dean of the House” whose 59 years as a member of the chamber is the longest in U.S. history, died Feb. 7 after a battle with prostate cancer. He leaves behind a six-decades-long record of progress for labor rights, civil rights and health care expansion.

The Struggle for Workers is Real

Sometimes statistics don’t tell the whole story. That’s certainly the case with today’s economy.

So-called experts point to increased jobs and decreased unemployment as if it means that hardworking Americans should be instantly OK. But they shouldn’t be fooled by those numbers, and neither should the working public.
