Politicians are supposed to work for us – not for the high up folks who spend their time looking down on working people. I grew up in Red Oak, North Carolina during a time when people in government were more concerned with following the will of the people – not being followed by the people on social media.
North Carolina is home to 650,000 military veterans. We owe a debt to those who honorably serve to keep us safe. We have a sacred obligation to ensure that they have the best available healthcare, social services, housing, and transitional education.
I come from a family of people who had to work for a living. My grandfather sharecropped by picked cotton and my mother paid our bills by working at the Rocky Mount Cotton Mill. I have had to work three jobs in order to keep the lights on for my family. I know the importance of making sure that workers in the richest Nation in the world have the opportunity to earn a living wage.
