      Union officials, civic leaders call for “care, not chaos” in effort to save the Affordable Care Act

      An early top priority of the month-old Trump administration is replacing Obamacare. That continues to evoke concern among many who say despite its problems, the Affordable Care Act is working. During a Thursday rally outside Monticello Village Hall, organized by the Hudson Valley Central Labor Council AFL-CIO, several speakers said dismantling the ACA without a better replacement would hit this region hard.

      Trump talks a lot about the ‘forgotten man,’ but so far he’s just helping Wall Street

      Donald Trump has a plan to make Apple's dividends great again. I'm talking, of course, about the administration's plans for corporate tax reform. Now, in theory, allowing companies to bring their foreign profits home at a much, much lower tax rate than they could today—as a prelude to a system where overseas earnings wouldn't be taxed at all—would bring in a flood of cash that could boost investment and jobs. In practice, though, it would probably just bring in a flood of cash that would boost investor payouts and stock prices. That, at least, is what Apple's Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri admitted recently. Repatriating that money, he said, would give them "additional flexibility around our capital return activities."

      Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the national “right to work” bill: Right to work is a lie dressed up in a feel-good slogan. It doesn’t give workers freedom—instead, it weakens our right to join together and bargain for better wages and working conditions. Its end goal is to destroy unions. Numbers don’t lie. Workers in states with right to work laws have wages that are 12% lower. That’s because unions raise wages for all workers, not just our members.

      Stuart Appelbaum, the head of the most powerful retail workers union in America, swears he is optimistic. Why? Appelbaum has been president of the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU) for nearly 20 years. He previously worked as a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee, and is still a DNC member. Under his leadership, the union has had notable victories in the generally hostile retail world, representing workers at H&M, Zara, Duane Reade, Macy’s, and Bloomingdale’s, as well as significant numbers of car wash workers, southern poultry workers, and factory workers across America. Appelbaum spoke to us last week about the future of unions in the Donald Trump era.
