VP Biden says workers deserve 'fair share'

VP Biden says workers deserve 'fair share' story image

DETROIT (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden told hundreds of Detroit-area union members that they deserve a "fair share" of any improvement in corporate profits.

Biden spoke Monday on the grounds of the former Tiger Stadium ahead of organized labor's annual parade Monday. He stuck with populist themes, criticizing corporate pay and companies that leave the U. S. for lower taxes.

He says workers don't want a handout. Biden says, "Just give them a chance."

Biden was preceded on the stage by labor leaders and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer and Gary Peters, the party's nominee for U.S. Senate.

It is the second time in three years he has come to Detroit for Labor Day activities. The annual event celebrates the achievements of Michigan's working men and women and the state's labor unions.
