Union groups rally for American jobs

Posted:

A group in Waterloo gathered Wednesday evening to spread the message,"America wants to work!"

Members of the Black Hawk Union Council, the UAW838, and  the UFCW431 rallied outside Senator Charles Grassley's office in downtown Waterloo.

The group is calling on Senator Grassley and Congress to end the partisan gridlock in Washington.

"People kind of look at is as Republicans and Democrats. We're looking at it as people need jobs. We need people there in office that watch out for the middle class," said Cal Eckhoff of the Black Hawk Union Council. "The middle class is shrinking fast."

Members say passing legislation like the President's jobs bill will get middle class Americans back to work.
