He said that one of the main things that needs to be focused on is reversing some of the adverse effects that it has had on the United States over the past 25 years. Burga also said that they need to focus on the fair trade portion of the agreement and making sure that workers protections are kept in mind. Lastly, he spoke about the Great Lakes Regional Meeting, which he attended, and how there were workshops on programs to elect more union members into congress, keeping congress accountable for their actions and economics.

He brought up that the more infrastructure improvements that are made, the environment will begin to be cleaned up. One example that Williams made is that if we were to fix our water systems, there would be less pollution in our water, and we will be able to move water around more efficiently. Finally, he talked about the Lift America Act.

AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc spoke about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) returning to bartending to advocate for a minimum wage increase and tipped worker minimum wage increase.

Protect the Right to Organize Act Discussed on America’s Work Force

Bill Samuel, government affairs director with the AFL-CIO, spoke with America’s Work Force on May 23 about the Protect the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.

AFL-CIO

Samuel spoke on the PRO Act and why it is necessary for worker protection. He said that the PRO Act protects the workers right to strike, binding arbitration to their first contract with their employers, and mainly fixes the misclassification of workers. Samuel said that fixing the misclassification of workers is one of the most important parts of this bill because it will help correctly classify workers as workers, rather than independent contractors, and allow them to receive proper wages, benefits, and protections that they are entitled to. He then went on to talk about Connecticut joining the fight for $15 minimum wage, and how by this fall they will be increasing their wages by 90 cents. Lastly, he spoke about the new NAFTA, United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) and how there is pressure to strengthen portions of it protecting workers rights in Mexico, reducing wage suppression and union busting tactics.

He discussed different forms of health insurance policies, such as the whole life insurance policy. DeVerna also mentioned affordable long term care policies to help people leave behind money for those who survived them rather than spending it all on additional care.

America’s Work Force Discussed More Thorough Labor Law Reform

Bill Samuel, director of government affairs with the AFL-CIO spoke with America’s Work Force on April 25 about better improving labor laws.

Bill Samuel AFL-CIO

Samuel discussed the United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement (USMCA), the updated version of NAFTA, and how the labor law reform in it still is not strong enough. He said that he would like to see the Mexican minimum wage, which is just above $3, to be raised so that the standard of living in Mexico could go up. Samuel stated that increasing the minimum wage in Mexico will help keep jobs in the United States as well because companies will be less willing to send jobs to Mexico since Mexican labor will not be as cheap as it once was. Lastly, he talked about Protect the Right to Organize Act (PRO) and the push to increase awareness of unions and the benefits of organizing.

Dan DeVerna

Financial adviser Dan DeVerna spoke with AWF on April 25 about what age you could retire at, and how to receive your retirement benefits.

He said that every person is different, so they will all have different plans and should pick one that suits them the best. DeVerna also explained how much money a person needs for a good retirement and also how to get your money out of your 401k or other retirement plan.

AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc covered the Amazon driver’s recent victory where now they will not be forced to sign an arbitration agreement that would intentionally misclassify them, making them miss out on better pay and other benefits.

He said, at first, using the lower bidding companies saves money, but costing more and more to maintain and improve as the years go on because of the poor quality of work that was done. Paul also talked about the new NAFTA, United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, and how he would like to see it include more protections for workers.
