Sherrod Brown: Term ‘Rust Belt’ a ‘Direct Attack on the Dignity of Work’

‘If congress fails to act, thousands of retired miners could lose their health care this year’

"I live in a place that some national media people, including President-elect Trump also, have referred to my part of the country as the 'Rust Belt'. When they say 'Rust Belt' that's a direct attack on the dignity of work. It demeans their work, it diminishes who they are, it's saying that those people are in the past at working states like mining and steel workers and others who make things."
