Brooklyn, NY – The Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union has endorsed Rodneyse Bichotte in her bid for the State Assembly. "We are proud to endorse Rodneyse Bichotte for NY State Assembly, as she has been an essential advocate for our members.
She has lobbied with us around issues such as paid sick leave and stood with us in Albany when the legislation to increase minimum wage was passed. We know she will be with us to continue the push for raising the minimum wage and fight on behalf of low wage workers," said Ademola Oyefeso, Political Director of The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU).
"As an Assemblywoman, I will support legislation that supports workers, and families." said Bichotte. "It has been an honor to stand side-by-side with the members of RWDSU and fight for the rights of workers. I know their experience first hand. My mother was a low-wage worker for 30 years, and as a single-parent she struggled to keep her family afloat. Thank goodness she had a union that provided insurance, and a pension."
