However, at the end of the day, it’s not politics that drives the mind-blowing success of Las Vegas’ Culinary Union: It's the results. Yet results can’t happen without the advocacy of people in power who will fight, and not hurt, the working person. 

Pappageorge knows this.

“People want a fighting union,” he said. “We are returning to a Gilded Age. There has never been a better time to join a union. There's no other way to beat these massive corporations. And we’ve had successes. We were told we can’t organize in the South, but we are. We are in New Orleans, in Mississippi, and in Florida. Labor movements need to step up and help elect the right people who will improve people’s lives.”
