For the last several years, workers’ rights have been under attack in North Carolina.
The insurance industry, big businesses and powerful lobbyists have used every underhanded tactic in the book to take away the legal protections workers and injured people in North Carolina have under the law.
The governor and his political appointees have tried to dismantle the N.C. Industrial Commission, the group that decides workers’ compensation cases, and stack it with biased judges who favor business and insurance.
They’ve funded false attack ads against fair-minded judges in an attempt to replace them with candidates who answer to special interests.
We’ve been fighting a war over workers rights, and the battle isn’t over yet. But we have a great weapon to use in this fight – our vote.
The Nov. 4 general election is an important one in North Carolina. I want to encourage you to vote and to support candidates who will stand up for the rights of hardworking North Carolinians, people like U.S. Senator Kay Hagan and N.C. Supreme Court Justice Robin Hudson.
If the insurance lobby’s candidates win these races and others, I fear workers and injured people in North Carolina will lose even more of their rights. And taxpayers will pay the price.
During each election season, the N.C. Advocates for Justice examines the platforms of all candidates and endorses those who are committed to protecting those rights. We are publishing their endorsements on our website. We suggest you consider the candidates on this list as you go to the polls on Nov. 4.
