WTAS: Rubio Supports Rail Workers, Shifts Debate

  • Boom. @marcorubio continues to walk the walk on pro-labor politics, unlike nearly all other GOP aspirants who claim to speak for the “multiracial working class.”

 
Oren Cass, Executive Director, American Compass (Twitter)

  • Still not clear to me why President Biden thinks an industry as profitable as the railroads needs federal protection from its workers. But glad to see @marcorubio making the case for a pro-worker settlement.

 
Allan Smith, Political Reporter, NBC News (Twitter)

  • As some in the GOP seek to realign the party re: it’s relationship with corporate America, it’s conceivable that some other Republicans may take Rubio’s position.

  • Rubio also endorsed the Amazon union drive in Alabama

 
Oliver Knox, Reporter, Washington Post (Twitter)

  • Rubio is probably the best Republican on blue-collar policy after Trump. Maybe better than Trump.

 
Danny Rivero, Reporter, WLRN (Twitter)

  • Rubio is currently to the left of Biden on this one labor issue, despite Biden saying he would be the most pro-labor president in US history. Also worth remembering Rubio strongly supported the push to unionize Amazon warehouse in Alabama last year.

 
Zaid Jilani, Solutions Reporter, NewsNation (Twitter)

  • Last year Rubio was the only Senate Republican to support union drive at Amazon warehouses in Alabama.

 
Joseph Zeballos-Roig, Domestic Policy Reporter, Semafor (Twitter)

  • Rubio is outflanking Biden and hitting him from the left on a labor issue, setting up a very unusual dynamic as the WH urges Congress to avert a rail strike.
