America’s Work Force Discussed Richard Trumka’s Interview with Fox News

In early September, Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO joined Fox News Sunday and discussed the United States-Mexico-Canada-Trade Agreement (USMCA).

AFL-CIOTrumka sat down with Fox News Sunday, the day before Labor Day to talk about why he does not think the USMCA is passable as it stands right now. He said that it is not enforceable and it will be a windfall for corporations and a disaster for workers. Trumka stated a few reasons as to why he does not believe it is passable as it stands. One of the reasons is that it allows either party to stop arbitration, which would ruin any progress of mending any problems between workers and their company. He also gave his opinions on the good and bad President Trump has done for workers since he took office.

Communication Workers of AmericaFrank Mathews, Communication Workers of America, District 4 administrative director spoke with America’s Work Force on Sept. 10 about the AT&T tax scam. He talked about AT&T breaking their promise to create more jobs with the profits that were made after their tax break, and instead of creating jobs, they offshored them. Mathews did say that employees did see an increase in their wages, however, it was only two cents an hour. Again, he stressed how this is nowhere near what was promised and the workers feel cheated.

AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc talked about British Airways pilots going on strike and the Battery Wharf Boston hotel workers striking for better conditions and better pay.
