From the “Working Families Vote 2008” web site of the AFL-CIO:
Democratic presidential candidates will meet working families Aug. 7 at the AFL-CIO Presidential Candidates Forum in Chicago.
Working men and women will ask the candidates questions focusing on issues that affect the daily lives of working families—from jobs and wages to health care, retirement, education and Iraq.
