Environmentalists, Workers Seek Common Ground
Rich Fitzgerald, the Allegheny County Executive, said Pittsburgh's history has some important lessons for Power Shift: the convention center they're meeting in is named after David L. Lawrence, a former Pittsburgh mayor who worked with industry to help create some of the nation's first major air pollution laws in the 1940s.
Back at the Power Shift conference, Duckett noted the potential for environmentalists and labor to join forces, but said it won't be easy.
"That's a roomful of people that is sympathetic to workers, but they don't understand us. They don't see the world through that lens" of a working family, Duckett said.
