Election 2016: Members Speak Out

Joe Shelley
Local 9-508


Joe Shelley, 43, of Hanahan, S.C. has been a union member for a decade and serves as recording secretary for USW Local 9-508 at KapStone Paper and Packaging.

“For me, right to work is the big difference between Trump and Hillary Clinton. He supports a national right to work. And she opposes right to work.

Right to work has been in South Carolina for as long as I can remember, and I know its dangers. It is designed to cut union funds and not allow us to do good things for our members. That endangers unions.

“If unions do well, the middle class does well and communities do well. So right to work is a threat to the middle class and to communities. And Donald Trump supports that threat.”
