ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders praises the trade union movement for giving America a middle class and says his administration will fight for the rights of working people. Sanders said his administration would be like "Scott Walker in reverse." "Scott Walker wants to destroy trade unionism, I want to build trade unionism," said Bernie during a town hall meeting of union members from UAW Local 95 in Janesville on Monday (April 4).

Sanders seeks to build a movement that can make the political revolution needed to transform the country, not simply win the White House.
