AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka says the Trump budget shortchanges working people by trying to balance the budget on their backs.
Trumka says working people in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin didn't vote "or a budget that slashes workforce training and fails to invest in our nation’s infrastructure. "
The AFL-CIO says the $54 billion Trump's budget cuts to programs that benefit working families is dangerous and destructive.
The AFL-CIO Trump budget analysis says "The budget abandons the future—slashing investments in workers, communities, young people, protecting our environment and building democracy. There are major cuts in job training, education, health programs, the environment, the arts and foreign aid. Research programs in science and medicine are slashed."
