USW Notes New EPI Report: U.S.-China Trade Deficit Resulted in 3.4 Million Lost American Jobs; Every State and Congressional District Impacted

Attached is a copy of the USW’s press release in response to the announcement by United States Trade Representative Michael Froman that the United States has launched a new trade enforcement complaint against China at the WTO concerning China’s subsidies to certain producers of primary aluminum.

 On labor day…..for those out there who think elections don’t matter or it’s not important who gets to appoint Supreme Court justices…’s an historic case decided on a 5 to 4 split of that court that decided that we had a right to our Union. If they had their way today, there are so many forces in the country who would reverse this in a minute. We can’t ever let that happen. Hope you all have a good labor day holiday.

In the Wednesday morning, Huffington Post employees sent out a letter to their colleagues calling for them to unionize. “We believe organizing is the best way both to preserve what’s already working and to bring about positive change,” they argued. “Simply, a union will give us a voice in our newsroom’s future.”

Many Americans know that the United States is not a democracy but a “corporatocracy,” in which we are ruled by a partnership of giant corporations, the extremely wealthy elite and corporate-collaborator government officials. However, the truth of such tyranny is not enough to set most of us free to take action. Too many of us have become pacified by corporatocracy-created institutions and culture.
