Presidential politics shines spotlight on shiftwork

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has produced a 30-second commercial recognizing the challenges of working the night shift. The ad shows night shift workers in a variety of industrial settings. It goes on to point out the Senator's record and stance on issues the ad cites as being important to shiftworkers -- child care, elder care, health care, etc.

The National Shiftwork Information Center is a non-partisan organization and not an advocacy group so we are not endorsing this candidate nor her position. But, we applaud turning a national spotlight on the realities of shiftwork and identifying the kinds of issues that affect shiftworkers. Maybe this ad will help others pay attention to the needs of this important sector of our 24/7 economy.

You can view the ad on YouTube.
