For Biden and unions, what a difference a decade makes

Ten years ago, the Obama White House prevented him from standing with Wisconsin union workers. Now he’s making up for lost time.

President Joe Biden said workers in Alabama and across the country have the right to join a union without intimidation from their companies. His comments come as Amazon workers in the state are voting on whether they should unionize. In a two minute video posted to Twitter, Biden didn’t mention Amazon by name, or say how workers should vote. (AP Photo/Jay Reeves, file)
