Labor & Workers in Trump’s Recession

On Labor Day, Vice President Biden traveled to Harrisburg, PA for a virtual event from the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO headquarters and took questions from union members. Senator Harris toured an IBEW training facility and attended a roundtable with Black business owners in Milwaukee, WI. Trump gave an incoherent press conference focused on himself in which he made no effort to honor workers or the labor movement.American workers have been knocked down. Millions have lost their jobs — and with it their pay, health insurance, and the dignity of work.
Instead of recognizing the pain of working families or honoring the labor movement on Labor Day, Trump gave an incoherent press conference focused on his top concern, himself.
While Trump cites the stock market to claim the economy is recovering, his friends and big corporations are getting richer while working families are still struggling to make ends meet.It didn’t have to be this bad: Six months into this crisis, more than 13 million Americans are out of work, and more than half the jobs lost haven’t come back. Trump is the worst jobs president in recorded history. More than 100,000 small businesses have closed for good.

While other countries have largely recovered, job growth has slowed due to Trump’s failed COVID response.
1 in 5 workers (29 million Americans) are receiving unemployment assistance as mass layoffs continue.
For 24 weeks, more workers have filed unemployment claims than any week during any previous recession.
Trump doesn’t have a plan to address this pandemic or get Americans back to work safely. He is utterly disconnected from the pain and suffering of so many families.
Trump cut aid that unemployed workers need to pay the bills while proposing new tax cuts for the top 1% and wealthy investors.
Workers deserve a president who will put them first. Biden and Harris know we can’t just go back to the way things were before the virus — we have to build back better. They’ll create millions of good-paying, union jobs and reward work, not wealth. Their plans include:
Encourage union organizing and collective bargaining

Pay workers a decent wage, at least $15 per hour

Ensure access to quality, affordable health care

Provide universal paid sick days and 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave

Ensure women are paid equally for equal work

While We’re Talking About Labor:

Jessica Holmes has great ideas about how a Commissioner of Labor can improve the lives working people in NC.

99 Reasons to Flip NC

53. TO BRING BACK NORTH CAROLINA’S MIDDLE CLASS

North Carolina’s economy is one of extremes, with pre-pandemic growth in both high- and low-wage jobs over the past 15 years but an actual decline in the number of middle-class jobs, despite the state’s rapidly growing population. While Republicans in the NCGA have prioritized tax cuts for large corporations and the super wealthy, they have left not only the poor but also the middle class behind.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Alamance County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!

Check this link to the Alamance County Election Official Application. We especially need elections workers during the 17-day early voting period. We have a new early voting location at the Elmira Community Center in Burlington and we have newly expanded weekend voting, including Sunday voting. This means we need more elections workers than in the past. And the COVID virus has meant that many of our predominantly older elections workers who are more vulnerable have chosen not to return to work this year’s election.

You can also fill out the NC State Board of Elections Democracy Heroes form to be contacted by BOE staff: https://www.ncsbe.gov/get-involved
