Today, Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO, released the following statement.
"Every day, in every way, working people are meeting the moment. And because of you, America’s labor movement is being seen in a whole new light. Tens of millions of working people want in. Workers are done with being underpaid and overworked. Done with the indignity of being treated by employers as disposable, especially when they call us essential. Done with the fear of being fired or feeling unsafe in our own workplaces. Instead, workers want—and workers deserve—the rights and respect that come with a union card."
