“I have fought with organized labor throughout my career and I’m proud to stand in solidarity with workers in South Carolina and across the country,” Harris said in a statement accompanying the press release.

“Unions built the middle class but here in the Palmetto State they are being denied the right to organize for the wages and benefits they deserve. We need a leader and president who will be the Organizer in Chief and stand with unions and working people — I have been that leader and will be that president,” she added.

Harris is a former McDonald’s worker herself.
