Labor Movement Poised to Lead AI Revolution to Harness Better Future for Workers

Statement from AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler following her participation in the Senate’s inaugural AI Insight Forum today:

I applaud Majority Leader Schumer for an important first step in ensuring AI is not only safe but also works for workers. There are many conversations still to come and, throughout the process, the interests of working people must be Congress’ North Star. Workers are not the victims of technological change—we’re the solution. Through the labor movement, we will beat back corporate greed and harness artificial intelligence to create higher wages, good union jobs, and a better future for this country.
