Trumka Has Some Ideas for President Obama's State of the Union Speech

January 15, 2014

On a telephone press conference, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said he was optimistic about 2014 and that the United States was going to create good jobs and a good base for future prosperity. He said he hopes that when Barack Obama gives his State of the Union address in two weeks, the president will borrow a few lines from a speech Trumka is giving today at the U.N. Summit on Climate Change, in particular, from this section of the speech he's giving to business leaders, politicians, global allies and community groups (after the jump).
