Northwest Oregon Labor Council

 

The AFL-CIO, a union that has had its share of issues with elements of the Affordable Health Care Act, is now poised to become one of its biggest defenders on Capitol Hill. In a letter to be sent Monday to House and Senate lawmakers, labor leader Richard Trumka blasted the “reckless” Republican-led effort to repeal Obamacare “with breathtaking speed” — and without providing a replacement program.

Take Action

Tom Price, the nominee for secretary of health and human services, has supported plans to replace Medicare with an underfunded voucher system and leave seniors overwhelmed by high costs on the private insurance market.

Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of labor—fast food CEO Andrew Puzder—would be a disaster for working Americans. He’s railed against a meaningful increase in the minimum wage, opposed expanding overtime pay and supported replacing working people with machines.
