As we reported last week, John Falk of York, Pa. has started his walk for worker freedom. Falk is walking from York to the U.S. Capitol to deliver a petition urging Congress to repeal President Obama’s Executive Order 13502, which encourages federal agencies to require wasteful and discriminatory project labor agreements (PLAs) on federal construction costing more than $25 million.
On Friday, Sept. 17, Falk held a kick0ff event with local elected leaders and members of their community. Some great pictures of the event are below.
The media was also on hand to cover Falk’s departure:
- The York Dispatch: Red Lion Man Walking to D.C. to Make Point on Labor Agreements (video)
- WGAL (Lancaster): Man Walking 90 Miles To Protest Union Laws
- The York Daily Record: York Glass Worker Walking From York to Washington
This is an inspirational story of an individual standing up to tell the Obama administration to stop the Big Labor handouts that hurt the vast majority of the construction industry and American taxpayers.
You can access the petition directly here as well.
