Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter directly addressed working families this weekend at a rally in Pittsburgh, where Employee Free Choice supporters questioned the new Democrat about his support for the issue.
Specter addressed the rally along with USW International Vice President Fred Redmond. Video clips of both their speeches are below, or you can watch them on our multimedia section here.
"I've worked for jobs and I know this state like the back of my hand," Specter said. "But I know your number one issue is Employee Free Choice."
"I'm working hard to find legislation, which is going to be a little different than the way it's proposed in Employees Free Choice, but will be enacted by the Senate," added Specter. "Trying to look for a fair solution on all sides is something which is good for government, and good government applies both to Democrats and Republicans."
