Election 2016: Members Speak Out

Roche Schultz
Local 14614

Roche Shultz, 42, of Hurricane, W.Va., is vice president of Local 14614 in District 8. A 10-year member of the USW, he works for Solvaira Specialties, a fiber producer.

“I think Donald Trump is dangerous. He says all of the right things, but I think he uses the people’s weaknesses against them when he talks about issues like your Second Amendment rights and trade.  We’re going to end up getting hammered by him if he gets elected.

“Hillary Clinton will keep ‘right to work’ from becoming national legislation, and hopefully she will tax the rich people who are outsourcing jobs and selling their products back here in the United States.

“Some people pay their fair share, while others outside the country are not paying their share yet they’re making profits off of us. I think that’s wrong.

“Hillary’s plan to improve the nation’s infrastructure would help my local because we build roads. If we spend money to rebuild roads, bridges and schools, that would put more people to work.

“I see Hillary pushing to raise the minimum wage. The more money that working people make, the more money they spend. That helps small businesses to grow and hire more workers.”
