AFL-CIO’s Trumka: Trump’s ‘Done More Things to Hurt Workers’ Than to Help Them and ‘That’s Unfortunate’
TRUMKA: "Look, he got 4% more of our members then met Romney did. He came to our members and said I’m going to change the rules of the economy, and they believed him. And quite frankly I wish he would have changed the rules of the economy. Unfortunately the roles he’s changing has hurt them. He supposed every increase in the minimum wage. He changed the regulation to take over time away from a couple of million people. His proposed a trillion dollar cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. He is rollback and safety standards towards workers. I’ve tried to call balls and strikes of him. When he does something that’s good for workers I say so. When he does something that’s bad for workers I say so. I have to say, unfortunately, while he may not even know what his administration is doing, they’ve done more things to hurt workers than they have to help them. That’s unfortunate."
