SEIU President Mary Kay Henry addressed delegates to the Democratic National Convention at the Time Warner Center in Charlotte, N.C., on Tuesday, Sept. 4. She joined more than 100 SEIU members and leaders to represent the interests and concerns of working men and women at the convention.
Mary Kay talked about growing up in southeast Michigan, noting that’s where Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney hails from. But despite them both calling Detroit home, she noted that their respective values are very different.
“Time after time, working families have paid the price for Mitt Romney’s success. Those are his values,” Mary Kay said. “And make no mistake: Those are the values he’d bring to the White House.”
She told convention delegates that we currently have a president who has fought for the right to bargain collectively, for the chance to earn a decent wage, for the principle that all work has value and that every worker deserves respect.
