Supporting Working Families

“As the son of a nurse and plumber, I was taught the value of hard work at a very young age. I also learned that a hard day’s work should come with the promise of a fair wage, good benefits, and the ability to retire.

Every day, I take those values with me to Beacon Hill to make sure hardworking men and women – whether they are in a union or not – are taken care of in our Commonwealth.

I’ve had the great opportunity, as ranking member of the Labor and Workforce Development Committee, to promote job creation, expose wage theft, and support policies benefiting workplace equality and safety.

Now, more than ever before, this job is about bringing people together, building consensus among diverse coalitions, and delivering results.” 

-State Senator Patrick O'Connor
