The Working Class Party started off its 2018 campaign with a series of events over Labor Day weekend. There was a WCP booth at the Hamtramck Labor Fest. Candidates and supporters took part in the Labor Day parade and other celebrations in Detroit, Flint, Ypsilanti, and Grand Rapids, as well as the Jazz Fest in Detroit. This weekend, among other things, they had a booth in a street fair in Detroit, "Dally in the Alley."
The banner with the candidates' photos was an attraction at many of these events. A number of people commented, "Your candidates don't look like typical politicians, they really are workers, aren't they!" Yes, they are. From their own experience, they can speak to the problems facing workers, and they can discuss the answers that a real working class party would give.
