AFL-CIO believes workers shouldn’t vote for Trump. He had a stak of paper showing a list of 37 reasons why blue-collar workers should not vote for him.
“These are all the things that his administration has done to hurt workers. So that when you go into a state and say, ‘I’m great,’ and you’ve got a minimum wage worker and [Trump’s] opposed every increase in the minimum wage, you have to ask did he really care about that worker?” asked Trumka, speaking on several of the 37 items.
“All I’m doing is calling balls and strikes. When he does something that’s good for workers, I say he did something that’s good for workers. When he does something that’s bad for workers, I say he did something that’s bad for workers,” he said at the breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
“Unfortunately for workers, there has been more of the latter than the former. I wish that were not true because workers in this country would be much better off if it weren’t true,” he added. – read the full article here @ https://www.washingtonexaminer.com
