DIAZ-BALART: Secretary, say hello to Onvez Felipe Ribeiro (ph). He has a question about labor unions, right?Among Hillary's many events in Nevada yesterday was a rousing Get Out The Caucus rally at the Laborers International Union hall in Las Vegas.
Good evening, Secretary Clinton. Your ties to corporate America have been at the center of this campaign. As president of the United States and former board member of the board of directors of Walmart, will you be silent on Walmart's anti-union campaign?
But more importantly, will you propose legislation that protects the right of workers to organize in the workplace?
CLINTON: Well, can I tell you…
CLINTON: The answer to that is yes. And it's why all the unions have endorsed me. And I want to tell you including…
CLINTON: Including the union -- the union (INAUDIBLE)…
CLINTON: … that is at the forefront of the organizing campaign at Walmart.
But most of the other unions have, public unions, private sector unions. And you know why? I mean, really, here we go. Let's go back to the facts, because I've always been a champion. I've always been there for them.
Tom Perez, our great secretary of labor, who is here, where is Tom? Right there, is somebody who…
CLINTON: … has been on the front lines standing up for workers and unions. He endorsed me. He has been campaigning for me. So I know that there's a lot of stuff that is said and thrown around.
But look at the facts. Unions have endorsed me because they know I'm on their side. I'm not just showing up at election time telling them what they want to hear. I've been there year-in and year-out, and I will be as president.
