Press Release

Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Gov. Scott Walker Comments Comparing Workers to Terrorists

Governor Walker’s statement comparing workers and terrorists is revolting.  It is clear that Governor Walker’s judgment is impaired, and that he is not qualified for the Presidency.

I call on Governor Walker to personally and immediately retract his statement, and apologize sincerely to the millions of workers in Wisconsin and throughout America he has so appallingly insulted.
