      The Republican health-care bill is all about shortchanging the poor

      The American Health Care Act, introduced in the House Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means committees late Monday, was advertised as a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. But the real focus of the legislation is not on health-care reform, not even on repealing the ACA as such. What the AHCA would in fact do is massively redistribute wealth from the poorest Americans to the wealthiest.

      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.

      AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka made the following statement on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court: The nomination of a Supreme Court justice is of paramount importance to working families. The Court’s decisions have a profound impact on the wages and working conditions of working people. We are deeply troubled that President Trump, who ran his campaign on being a friend to working people, has chosen his nominee from among a group vetted and approved by organizations like the Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society

      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.
