Team AFL-CIO (5/13/20)
COVID-19 and the economic fallout from the pandemic has hit working people in this country hard.
Current unemployment numbers are at the highest level since the Great Depression. Working families are suddenly finding themselves without health insurance during a public health crisis, and the future of our economy is appearing more and more uncertain with each passing day of inaction by the Trump administration. And workers are on the front lines of this crisis, risking our health and our lives to keep America running, often without proper protection.
In the midst of this uncertainty, America’s labor movement is fighting for all working people.
We need a response that serves and prioritizes working people, and unions are leading the call for workplace protections and a plan to reopen the country safely.
WHAT: Facebook Live event with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and Working America Executive Director Matt Morrison
WHEN: Noon ET on Friday, May 15
Join us to discuss America’s Five Economic Essentials that we need before reopening the economy, Working America’s innovative response to the crisis and how we can work together to protect the interests of ALL workers during this difficult time.
