What role will unions play in the 2020 presidential election?

“I think labor is very important right now for the candidates,” said Geoconda Argüello-Kline, the secretary-treasurer of the Culinary Workers Union Local 226.

Argüello-Kline said that unions are a dominant force in Las Vegas because of their fight for workers’ rights, including a higher standard of living and better opportunities to take care of their family.

When asked why she thinks Las Vegas and Nevada have large union representation, she answers quickly.

“I think it’s because we’ve been fighting for 84 years here in Las Vegas,” she said.
