Today, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka released the following statement on the recent Cabinet nominations made by President-elect Donald Trump:
After the election, we made clear that we would hold Donald Trump accountable to the promises he made to working people throughout the campaign.
His initial nominations fundamentally threaten these promises. Taken together, the appointments push President-elect Trump away from the values and issues that working-class voters said were most important to them.
