“Jennifer Carroll Foy took it on on behalf of working people across Virginia and won tough fights. Jennifer Carroll Foy is a seasoned campaigner and an unapologetic advocate for workers and their families, ”said Jason Ascher, political director of the Mid-Atlantic Pipe Trades Association. “She has lived the struggles of the working people and will lead the fight to help them with her positive vision and commitment to rebuilding the Virginia economy. She has stood with us and our members are proud to stand united behind her. “
“I am honored to be recognized by the Mid-Atlantic Pipe Trades Association. I know what it’s like to make impossible decisions when you’re overworked, unprotected, and underpaid, ”said Carroll Foy. “So I’ve fought hard to get the minimum wage to $ 15 an hour, Medicaid to 500,000 Virginians, and more for working people. And that’s why I always stand with unions that do critical work to create a level playing field for workers. As governor, my top priority is to build on the advances we have made for working people and ensure everyone has the opportunity to thrive and thrive in Virginia’s post-COVID economy. “
