In all seriousness, why does the dem party appeal to some working class voters?

Their message and actions are all about working people paying for non-working people, and how many jobs we should sacrifice to which cause.

I seriously don't get why anyone who works for a living would vote dem.

    Because the Democratic party is the party most aligned with the economic interests of working people. The Republican party is a cartel which looks out for the interests of the wealthy, often at the expense of workers. But the Democratic party looks out for workers. Among other things they argue for: better wages, better safety conditions, more public assistance to workers, better benefits, lower taxes for workers, more job security, more unionization, more opportunities for entrepreneurship, etc etc.

    It is a silly question that you are asking. The Democratic Party had Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He did so much for workers. Furthermore, Unions support the Democratic Party because most Democrats are in favor of Unions. Granted, not all of them are. Many Democrats these days are DINOs (Democrat in name only) but nonetheless they are supported by labor organizers for the most part.

    So, to recap, working people usually support Dems because:

    - Dems largely support Unions (or at least aren't actively trying to destroy them)

    You could have just looked that up.

    Nah, Dems just don't think people should starve to death, die in the streets, lose their home, etc. if they fall on hard times in the wealthiest country to exist in human history. But **** that, amiright?

    I always get a kick out of conservatives who use this argument. What the hell do you think a shareholder in a company is? They buy a share, someone else does the work, and the shareholder gets the reward.

    Let's get to tangibles though:

    Democrats tend to support unions, which have worked to secure weekends, breaks at work (including lunch), paid vacation, FMLA, sick leave, Social Security, a minimum wage, an 8 hour work day, overtime pay, no child labor, safe working conditions, a 40 hour work week, workman's compensation for injuries sustained on the job, unemployment insurance, pensions, employer sponsored health insurance, collective bargaining rights for workers, wrongful termination laws, whistle blower protection laws, paid holidays, pregnancy and paternal leave, etc.

    Republicans/conservatives fought against every expansion of workers' rights & benefits.

    So that may be why "some working class" voters are drawn to Democrats.
