Washington, DC- AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka has a message for Donald Trump – stop dividing working people along racial and religious lines. And he urges working people not to listen to this divisive talk.

[Rich Trumka]: "Trump says he'll divide and deport immigrant families. He'll build a huge wall on the border. He said workers' wages are too high. Forget about increasing your pay. He thinks wages are already too high. He says it's OK to treat people differently just because of their religion, and to beat up protesters at his rallies. I've been around awhile and I've heard that kind of thing before. Politicians trying to divide working people – talking about "us" and "them." And here's what I've learned. Every time we listen to that kind of talk – in a coal mine, or an office or a factory or in a voting booth we end up weaker and poorer."  To hear the audio click the following link labor
