When I came to New Labor, the fear started to go away because they were doing a lot of things that I didn’t know how to organize…The proudest I’ve ever felt [was] when we won the fight against wage theft and for [drivers’] licenses for all. That’s when I really felt it. I felt good. I said, wow, because for years, for over 16 years, New Labor has been in the licensing fight for everyone. And when that happened. I said, well, we achieved something that seemed almost impossible.
