President Trump says the GOP tax bill will result in a $4,000 raise for workers, but we’ve been burned by false promises before.
That’s why the 12.5 million members of the AFL-CIO have joined a campaign by the Communications Workers of America to demand corporations put this raise in writing.
“Working people have heard the same old lies about the benefits of economic policies written by and for greedy corporations,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
CWA asked for written commitments from the CEOs of its members’ major employers, including AT&T, Verizon, General Electric, American Airlines and NBC Universal.
Working people everywhere should make this same demand. You don’t need to be in a union to ask for a promise in writing.
The Republican tax scam will kill jobs, hurt working people and increase the deficit by more than $1 trillion. A better plan would raise revenue by making Wall Street pay its fair share so America can invest in good jobs and a strong future.
