Richard L. Trumka quotes

Jul 17 2017 - NAFTA

We will do everything we can to make this a good agreement and to hold the president at this word and make sure we get a renegotiation. If it comes out that it is not a good deal, no deal is better than a bad deal.feedback

May 09 2017

The system is rigged. We think shareholders ought to become more active and lower those (executive pay raises), and that workers ought to get a bigger share of the wealth they produce.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Wall Street

President Trump needs to decide who he stands with. The coal miners, farmers, steelworkers and other regular Americans who he promised to help in the campaign, or the Wall Street tycoons who are rigging the economy at our expense. That decision will be the single greatest test and the most defining thing in his presidency.feedback

Feb 16 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

Unlike Andy Puzder, Alexander Acosta's nomination deserves serious consideration. In one day, we've gone from a fast-food CEO who routinely violates labor law to a public servant with experience enforcing it.feedback

Feb 10 2017

If the rules get rewritten to make it worse for workers, we'll say that. If he rewrites it to make it better for workers, we'll say that. If it's good for the workers and good for the country, we're gonna be for it. If it's bad for workers and the country, we'll be against it. And if we're against it, we'll fight it as a unified labor movement.feedback

Feb 10 2017

When he does something, we're going to try to look at it and ask two questions. Is it consistent with the values of the American worker and the American people and, two, is it good for workers? If it passes that test, then we're going to work for it. If it doesn't, we're going to work against it. And most – many – of the things that he's done [have] failed that test.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - Wall Street

He's the foreclosure king. He made billions of dollars by kicking a lot of working people out of their homes. He has been an example of what was wrong with the American economy, and if he brings that to the Treasury and spreads that, I think the American economy will suffer dramatically and again, Wall Street will profit and workers will get hurt.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - Wall Street

He promised that he wouldn't let Wall Street get away with murder, and he's changing the rules and doing away with Dodd-Frank and doing away with the fiduciary rule. What [American workers] had in mind when they voted for change and a rewrite of the American rules was that workers' wages, income and retirement assets will be increased and it wouldn't come at the expense of us, and Wall Street wouldn't get a free, huge gift, which is what these changes are. It wasn't what we expected, and it wasn't what we wanted and, the last thing is, it's terrible for the economy.feedback

Feb 06 2017

He's been a very, very strong advocate for corporations at the expense of working people. You think corporations need more help? And that they're not strong enough and that they should be stronger, then he's probably your guy. If you think that workers need more protection and corporations need less protection, then he's probably not your guy.feedback

Nov 10 2016 - Inequality

More than anything, this election is an indictment of politics as usual.feedback

Jul 27 2016

If you have somebody who is out there pounding you and pounding you and pounding you, eventually it's going to take a toll. I've said this and I've said it publicly: Hillary Clinton has to do A+ work to get a C-.feedback

Jun 29 2016 - Trans Pacific Partnership

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton came around to our position and now opposes the TPP. With our help, she's never going back. Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump opposes the TPP, too, although he says outsourcing creates jobs, so who knows where he really stands.feedback

Jun 28 2016

Trump embodies everything that is wrong with our current trade policy. He has consistently sent American jobs overseas to line his own pockets.feedback

May 17 2016 - Inequality

The income inequality that exists in this country is a disgrace.feedback

May 05 2016

Donald Trump has tapped into the very real and understandable anger of working people. But while he says he's with America's working people, when you look close, it's just hot air. Donald Trump is nothing but a house of cards, and once we educate people, the house of cards comes crashing down.feedback

Apr 27 2016

Latino working people should not have to risk their lives to make a living and support their families. Yet every day, millions of hardworking Latinas and Latinos are forced to work with little to no workplace safety protections while big businesses and corporations profit off our lives. We must take action to ensure that there are safeguards in place when working people go to work every day.feedback
