More Broken Promises From President Trump Discussed on America’s Work Force

Michael Hiltzik, Pulitzer Prize winner and writer for the LA Times spoke to America’s Work Force on Aug. 29 to talk about President Trump breaking more of his promises.

LA Times MagazineHiltzik discussed how farmers are being affected by the on-going trade war with China and how they feel betrayed after President Trump said that he would be fighting for farmers. With the President continuing his trade war with China by imposing tariffs on steel, China has been retaliating by putting sanctions in U.S exports, including corn and other crops, which hurts farmers and their business. Hiltzik did talk about how the steel tariffs have been helping the steel industry, but not enough to outweigh how much it’s been affecting farmers. Lastly, he talked about increasing union representation protections, such as the right to collective bargaining, right to organize and the right to a fair contract.
