While jobs have been restored over the past few years during the recovery from the recession, Sanders said many of those jobs are low-paying and part-time.
Sanders, an independent, was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 after serving 16 years in the House.
Sanders also repeated his support for increasing the national minimum wage.
His travel schedule also included a trip last week to Iowa. After the Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire hosts the first-in-the nation presidential primary. Voters in both states are already being courted.
“There have been too many efforts now to weaken collective bargaining, to weaken the right of workers to organize,” Shaheen said. “I will always stand with workers and I will fight for collective bargaining and the right to organize.”
