September 5, 2008 5:30:13 AM PDT
Sen. Barack Obama has announced his support for LAX workers negotiating a new contract. Those workers are in the middle of a three-week cooling off period after striking last Friday for a day.

The 2,500 workers provide services for the major airlines at the airport, but are not employed by LAX.

Obama released a statement saying, "The demands they're fighting for aren't unreasonable -- access to health care, adequate training, proper equipment, wages that can support a family -- that's what America's workers deserve."
