Union Workers Seek Some Funds From Rescue Plan

(Portland, OR) -- Union workers in Oregon want some of the state's share of funds from President Biden's American Rescue Plan.

They're asking lawmakers to consider a program to pay those workers a one-time check of between one-thousand and two-thousand dollars as hero pay.
