Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday praised labor unions, saying they were “keeping the barbarians at the gate” by opposing forces weakening America’s middle class.
“The truth of the matter is you built the middle class. Labor built the middle class. And there’s a reason why the middle class is shrinking,” said Biden in an address to the United Automobile Workers Community Action Program Conference in Washington, D.C.
“I know I got in trouble for saying this before, but I’m going to say it again. You guys are the only guys keeping the barbarians at the gate, man. That’s the deal,” he added.
