President Joe Biden marked the first major event of his 2024 re-election campaign with a union rally on Saturday, highlighting drives for the middle class through his economic agenda.

Biden announced an early endorsement of the AFL-CIO, a federation of 60 unions around the world, representing 12.5 million workers. “I’m proud to be the most pro-union president in American history,” he told the crowd in Philadelphia.

Biden discussed legislation enacted during his first term, such as pandemic relief, last year’s sweeping tax, health and climate package, and the recent bipartisan debt ceiling deal.

He also renewed his call for tax reform, which has been a challenge during his first term, even among some Democrats. He also once again called for a minimum tax on billionaires.

“It’s about time the super-rich start paying their fair share,” Biden said, but again stressed his promise that no one making less than $400,000 will pay more in federal income taxes.
