Trumka: 'Raising Wages Will Be a Driving Force at the Polls'

October 8, 2014

As working people are gearing up to get out and vote Nov. 4, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka had this to say on one of the top issues on people's minds:

Raising wages will be a driving force at the polls in the approaching midterm elections. Working people will turn out for candidates who support solutions that will make a difference in the real world—from raising the minimum wage to ensuring that all workers can bargain collectively and make a livable wage. The labor movement stands in strong support of the broad campaign to bring attention to raising wages leading up to and following Oct. 10 [a national day of awareness about raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour], and it’s our responsibility to keep it going.
