Throughout Native American Heritage Month, the AFL-CIO will be profiling leaders and activists to spotlight the diverse contributions Native Americans have made to the labor movement and toward expanding the rights of working people. Today's profile features Richard Reynolds of LIUNA.
"I enjoy being a part of the Laborers union, not only as a source of income for myself and family, but it's also helped me over the years learn so many different skill sets," said LIUNA member Richard Reynolds. "Along with using many different hand tools to equipment, I've gotten the chance to work with many companies and learn their trade, including road work, dirt work, pipe laying, scaffolding, and bridge work. I've gained lifelong friendships and skill sets in this workforce, and it helped me be a better worker every day."
