ICYMI: Trumka on Inequality and the Organization for Economic Co‑operation and Development

May 19, 2014

In his opening remarks to the Organization for Economic Co‑operation and Development (OECD) Forum panel, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said: "You know, whenever I come to the OECD, it's always interesting to discover which OECD I am talking to—the Monday Forum OECD that is getting serious about income inequality and going social, or the Tuesday OECD of the Economic Outlook—the OECD that makes excuses for continued mass unemployment and stagnant wages that is the reality in the majority of the OECD countries." After the forum, he was asked which OECD he found. See Trumka's response in this video.
