"A month. I don't know how to live in Mexico. I never go there lion is canvassing is part of a larger effort by her union Sister organization, the Culinary Workers Union. It represents about 60,000 hospitality workers in Nevada, the majority of whom are Latino. Union began canvassing for Biden in August, Well before the Biden campaign itself started knocking on doors in Nevada. Right now, you know the Latino community has been suffering with this pandemic. Gioconda Arguello. Kline is the secretary treasurer of the Culinary Workers Union. She says President Trump's handling of the Corona virus pandemic has hit Latinos, especially hard. In Nevada. Latinos make up about 30% of the population but account for more corona virus infections than any other group. We cannot afford another four year for President Trump, and we need to be sure by then become to be the precedent. But it wasn't Biden, who most Latinos in the State caucus for back in February. Bernie Sanders was the most popular candidate. An analysis by found that of majority Latino precincts, 70% backed Sanders. This is like two some concern among Democrats that Biden isn't motivating Latino voters. But Adrian Panto Ha doesn't see it That way. That enthusiasm gap is not there. We see a highly energized looking a population. Panto Ha is an analyst for Latino decisions, a public opinion firm focused on Latinos. He says that when it comes to getting Latinos to the polls, enthusiasm doesn't matter nearly as much as voter contact people vote because either have the resource is to go to politics or because politics comes to them. And when it comes to Latinos, which is a resource for community politics, coming to them is pivotal. Back on the streets of Reno. I speak with Javier or Maldonado, The young man Leone was canvassing. He tells me his vote is going to bite. When asked why he talks less about Biden and more about Trump, he'll say something, but he'll never really think about how he's gonna do it. And later on. He just does the opposite of what he actually said. He's going to do in general that just tells me that he doesn't know what he's doing. As for Leone herself, she won't be voting at all. Not because she doesn't want to, but because she can't Is a green card holder without US citizenship. Canvassing is as close as you'll get to the ballot box. This election cycle for NPR news.

"No not make is with Gordon daughter how where our goals what we doing that's always going to endorse we know Colin Powell indoors eight candidates a political candidate we everybody's seen gold political candidate right now Nevada is a so called right to work state and the culinary workers union has attracted members by offering them health care it says it supports choices in healthcare the mobilization of service employees could be critical to winning the Nevada caucuses so the unions a lack of endorsement for any candidate could be a setback for former vice president Joe Biden and an opening for moderate candidates like people to judge and Amy Klobuchar the culinary workers union also decided not to endorse a candidate in the two thousand sixteen race during the primaries between Sanders and Hillary Clinton for more we go to Las Vegas where we're joined by two gas Marcy wells as with that she's an activist a waitress a single parent has been a member of the culinary workers union local two twenty six in Nevada for sixteen years she wrote an essay for common dreams titled I have some of the best health insurance a union member can get but I would trade it today for Medicare for all also with us Hamilton Nolan labor reporter for in these times we welcome you both to democracy now how Watson why don't you give us a lay of the land in Nevada why the culinary workers union is so significant and the story of the health care they provide and why they have chosen not to support Medicare for all yeah well the culinary workers union is one of the best unions in America no doubt about it there about sixty thousand members strong they have successfully unionized the casino industry in Las Vegas and they're really a role model for building power in a single industry for unions and for elevating people into the middle class who would not have otherwise been able to have middle class jobs they're great union they run their own health care center health care is a big benefit of being in the culinary workers union and I think that that is the reality that's running up against the issue of Medicare for all in these primaries and the the idealism of Medicare for all that a lot of people and the Democratic Party and in the world of organized labor would like to see is running up against unions that do run their own health care and use that as a benefit to help attracts workers especially in a right to work state like Nevada where it can be harder to attract and maintain numbers but of course saw Hamilton that that issue of once up against the reality that unless you're going to be a member of the culinary workers union for life and never leave to go to another job that you will have health insurance but obviously if you move to a some other occupation you face the reality that the health care that you get may not be all of the health insurance that you have all may be far inferior that do you know what the debate has been of your sense within the union on this issue are there definitely is a debate and there's a debate not only within the killer workers union but with and the union world at large and within every major union America right now and progressives do wants Medicare for all and really if you talk to a lot of people in the union world if you talk to people who negotiate a union contracts they'll tell you that if unions did not have to bargain over healthcare they would have so much more political capital to use to make other games for workers wages and things like that so in a big picture sense I think Medicare for all would be a great thing for unions and organized labor it's sort of this transition period where you have all these different unions that have their own health care plans that they have expended a lot of political capital on over the years and they're extremely nervous about I think the bridge between what we have now and what Medicare for all would be so it's going to require a leap of faith on behalf of the killer workers union and organized labor as a whole Marcy wells here with culinary workers union local two twenty six and Nevada you've been a proud union member for something like sixteen years I'm tell us your story what kind of health care you have can you talk about how does the health care work you go down to a union hall you sign up for the health care at the beginning and join the union at the same time absolutely so specifically for the place that I work it was being opened when everyone started when I started so it was automatically union so signing up for the union gets you the health care you do have to work three hundred and sixty hours to qualify for the health care so if you're just starting out as a steady extra or something along those lines you have to meet minimum requirements and then once you meet those requirements you have to work two hundred and forty hours within a two month period or you don't qualify in that case for each hour that you're short you can pay five dollars to five dollars per hour to keep your insurance so that's kind of how the insurance works it's not exactly free it costs labor so for someone like me I suffer with chronic illness there there are flares and there are moments when I can't work in addition to that there are moments when I'm not able to get into the specialist I need to stay in a timely manner so I end up missing a lot of work not qualifying for the insurance and sort of not even having the resources from work to pay for it that insurance so for someone with chronic illnesses it is not really the best insurance and in and when you do have full coverage what are some of the of the the coal pays or the or the requirements out of pocket for workers are there any well if you're going to the culinary health center there are not co pays but at the same time there are any special is there so I'm a person like me would still have to go outside of that location it's fifteen dollars for a regular doctor visit twenty to thirty dollars per specialist visit if I need an MRI which I do frequently it's one twenty five each time an endoscopy is a hundred and fifty dollars so there are out of pocket costs just like with any other private insurance because that's what it is it's private insurance so talk about the debate with in your union about whether to endorse Medicare for all and how your co workers feel well I wouldn't even say it's much of the debate as it relates to co workers especially for people that have been working in the industry for a long time locally we have this sort of local lore about culinary union and good insurance but there's also the idea of the these golden handcuffs that sort of keep you tethered to an industry that you may not be physically or emotionally invested in anymore and there's not really a way out so the debate go ahead the bay is more centered around of democracy and people feeling like their voices are not being heard by the union that represents them you know we're paying dues and at the same time culinary has a political pact that a lot of us donate money too so it's kind of disheartening to get to this moment and see that we're not being heard and we're also being intentionally or unintentionally misled because for everyone that is a person that looks like me in America you're more likely to be uninsured than someone who is white or Asian and that is not any different here in Nevada so it's kind of sad to think that in Nevada you will only be protected under the umbrella of the culinary union we have friends and family here that are in the union and you know it's sort of projects this false image of elitism in a working class town and I wanted to ask you the union in the past has mobilized members to participate in caucuses and if I'm not mistaken some caucuses were even held on the grounds of of some of the hotels what's been the the mobilization effort to get out members to vote even if the union is not endorsing any candidate this time around it's the same as any political organization because that site is more politically based so where there's our town hall that the union with each candidate there are text messages and you know just reaching out to get members to participate in the process and to influence members on which way to vote as it relates to how a person could benefit the culinary union as a whole so they sort of give an overview of good for union bad for union and then let the workers do do the rest and there are strip caucus locations for people that work day shift so you don't have to miss out or leave work there right inside the hotels so that's very convenient so yeah I would say this time around there's.

"Really a role model for building. Power in a single industry for unions and For elevating people into the middle class. Who would not have otherwise been able to have middle-class jobs so there are great union They run their own healthcare center Healthcare is a big benefit of being in the Culinary Workers Union and I think that that is the reality. That's running up against the issue of Medicare for all in these primaries. And the the idealism of Medicare for all that a lot of people in the Democratic Party and in the world of organized Labor would like to see is running up against unions that do run their own healthcare and use that as a benefit to help attract workers in a right to work state like Nevada where it can be harder to attract and maintain members and but of course Oh Hamilton. That issue one's up against the reality unless you're going to be a member of the Culinary Workers Union for Life And never leave to go to another job that you will have health insurance but obviously if you move to some other occupation you face the reality that the health care that you get may not be the health insurance that you have a maybe far inferior. Do you know what the debate has been of your sense within the Union on this issue. There definitely is a debate. And there's a debate not only within the culinary workers union but within the union world at large and within every major union in America right now and progressives do want Medicare for all and really if you talked to a lot of people in the union world if you talk to people who've negotiated a union contracts. They'll tell you that. If unions did not have to bargain over healthcare they would have so much more political capital to us to make other games for workers wages. And things like that so in a big picture since I think. Medicare for all would be a great thing for unions and organized labor. It's sort of this transition period where you have all these different unions that have their own healthcare plans that they have expended a lot of political capital on over the years. And they're extremely nervous about. I think the bridge between what we have now and what Medicare for all would be so. It's GonNa require a leap of faith on behalf of the culinary workers. Union and organized labor is a whole marcy wells. You're with Culinary Workers Union local two twenty six Nevada. You've been a proud union member for something like sixteen years. Tell us your story. What kind of healthcare you have can you talk about? How does the healthcare work you go down to a union whole you sign up for the healthcare at the beginning and join the union at the same time absolutely so specifically for the place that I work? It was being opened when everyone started when I started. So it was automatically union so signing up for the Union Gets you the healthcare you have work? Three hundred sixty hours to qualify for the healthcare. So if you're just starting out as a steady extra or something along those lines you have to meet minimum requirements and then once you meet those requirements you have to work two hundred and forty hours within a two month period or you don't qualify for each hour that you're short. You can pay five dollars to five dollars per hour to keep your insurance. So that's kind of how the insurance works. It's not exactly free. It cost Labor so for someone like me. I suffer with chronic illness. There are flares and there are moments when I can't work in addition to that there are moments when I'm not able to get into the specialist. I need to stay in a timely manner so I ended up missing a lot of work. Not Qualifying for the insurance and sort of not even having the resources from work to pay for that insurance so for someone with chronic illnesses. It is not really the best insurance. And when you do have full coverage what are some of the The the Co pays or the or the requirements out of pocket for workers. Are there any well? If you're going to the Culinary Health Center there are not co pays but at the same time there are any specialist there so a person like me would still have to go outside of that location. It's fifteen dollars for a regular doctor. Visit Twenty to thirty dollars per specialist visit If I need an MRI which I do frequently it's one twenty five each time An endoscopy is one hundred and fifty dollars so there are out of pocket cost just like with any other private insurance. Because that's what it is. It's private insurance. So talk about the debate within your union about whether to endorse Medicare for all and how your co workers feel well. I wouldn't even say it's much of a debate as it relates to co workers especially for people that have been working in the industry for a long time locally. We have this sort of local lore about Culinary Union and good insurance. But there's also the idea of these golden handcuffs that sort of keep you to an industry that you may not be physically or emotionally invested anymore and there's not really a way out so the debate the debate is more centered around Democracy and people feeling like voices are not being heard by the Union. That represents them you know we're paying dues and at the same time. Culinary has a political pact that a lot of US donate money to so it's kind of disheartening to get to this moment and see that we're not being heard and we're also being intentionally or unintentionally misled because for everyone. That is a person that looks like me in America. You're more likely to be uninsured than someone who is white or Asian. And that's not any different here in Nevada. So it's kind of sad to think that in Nevada you will only be protected under the umbrella of the Culinary Union. We have friends and family here. That aren't in the Union. And you know it's sort of projects this false image of elitism and a working class town and I wanted to ask you. The Union in the past has mobilized members participating caucuses. If I'm not mistaken some caucuses where even held on the grounds of of some of the hotels. What's been the mobilization effort to get out members to vote even if the Union is not endorsing any candidate this time around. It's the same as any political organization because that side is more politically based so we're there are town halls at the union with each candidate. There are text messages and just reaching out to get members to participate in the process and to influence members on which way to vote as relates. To how a person could benefit the culinary union as a whole so they sort of give an overview of good for union bad for union. And then let the workers do do the rest and there are strip caucus locations for people that work day shifts. So you don't have to miss out or leave work there right inside the hotels so that's very convenient so yeah. I would say this time around. There's a lot of attention on caucusing. And a lot of attention on medicare for all and the culinary messages. We don't want Medicare for all but membership message is we want.
