Statement from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka in response to tonight’s presidential debate:
Joe Biden reminded America tonight how a strong, thoughtful, engaged and compassionate leader acts. His plan for defeating COVID-19 and delivering economic relief to the American people are the solutions we need in the face of the enormous spikes in cases and unemployment across the country. And his commitment to growing the labor movement will give more working families the collective power to win better wages, health care, retirement security and safety on the job. America’s families deserve leaders who focus on “we, the people,” not just on the person they see in the mirror. Only Joe Biden can be that leader. Union members will deliver the presidency for Joe and work with him to rebuild the country we love.
