Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on President Obama’s Commitment to “Insource” American Jobs

WASHINGTON, DC – We support President Obama’s commitment to continue to expand his administration’s efforts to “insource” American jobs. There are few if any causes of greater concern to America’s workers than bringing middle class jobs back to the United States.

For too long, the 1% have sought and received tax breaks that actually created subsidies for corporations exporting good American jobs overseas. We look forward to working with the administration to end those job destroying tax subsidies and implement policies that encourage investment and job creation here at home.

America’s workers are not looking for handouts, they are looking for a chance to work hard and apply their best in the world skills in order to provide their families a middle class life.
