Texas, Kentucky Union Members Demand Gas Price Relief

Houston workers protest high gas prices and John McCain’s support for Big Oil.

Over the weekend, union members in Texas and Kentucky held events to demand relief for working families during this time of economic difficulty and soaring gas prices.

In Houston, more than 75 union members gathered in front of Shell Oil headquarters to demand an economic plan that helps families beset by these rising costs. They called attention to Sen. John McCain’s record on tax breaks for oil and gas companies, and asked that he change course and look out for workers, not the lobbyists who fund and run his campaign.

The union members were joined by Charles Steel, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which co-sponsored the rally.
