WE’VE HAD IT. Donald Trump promised to raise wages and to protect us. HE BROKE THAT PROMISE. A man’s word is his bond. But President Trump has broken the promise he made four years ago to improve the lives of working Americans. Don’t be fooled. This Administration is focused solely on the interests of well-financed elites and has left working-class Americans in the dust. President Trump and his appointees at the US Department of Labor are making it easier for employers to cheat workers out of fair wages, overtime, unemployment benefits, workers’ compensation and other workplace protections.1 The President has jeopardized workforce development, workplace safety and economic growth across the country by lowering training standards meant to protect workers and increase take home pay.2 These reckless attacks have been especially devastating for those essential workers charged with building and preserving our nation’s roads, bridges, schools, hospitals and utilities. If the President is going to do this to essential workers, what do you think he will do for you? At North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU), we pride ourselves on working with both political parties. We hold our elected officials to their word, especially when they promise to improve the lives of workingAmericans.At every turn,the President has failed our hardworking members in the construction industry, all frontline essential workers and, indeed, the entire nation. Donald Trump has not lived up to his words. After four years of broken promises and the Administration’s War on the Middle Class – WE’VE HAD IT. — Sean McGarvey President, North America’s Building Trades Unions For more information on “Promises Made, Promises Broken,” go to HardHatsForAmerica.org Check the Facts: 1.
