State of New Hampshire Archives: on Social Security


Andru Volinsky: Joined with Labor to protect public pensions

Labor plays an important role in protecting our Democracy when it advocates for its workers. That is why I joined with Labor to protect public pensions. Pensions are promises that must be kept. Pensions protect the economic security of state and local workers, their families and the economic wellbeing of those merchants and businesses that depend upon the buying power of those workers. We are all in this together.
