Trump Attacks Largest Labor Union Leader While He Rolls Back Worker Safety Rules

On Labor Day, as the nation takes time to celebrate the achievements of American workers and the labor movement, we get a report that the Trump administration has rolled back worker safety protections, putting the lives of workers in coal mines, offshore oil rigs, meat processing plants, and other manufacturing jobs at risk.

That’s not to mention opening the door for possible new uses of asbestos and the ongoing assault on the environment in general at the EPA, which will lead to the deaths of thousands of people, especially in the hardest-hit areas like coal country.

In other words, Trump rang in Labor Day 2018 with a literal assault on workers. Oh, then he attacked the largest union leader, Richard Trumka, president of the United States’ largest federation of labor unions.
