4. AFL-CIO’s Trumka: People Will Die Because of Trump Slashing Red Tape
On the back end of the show, Matthews spoke to AFL-CIO union boss Richard Trumka and lobbed a softball fretting over whether Trump has made “it more dangerous to work in America” due to slashing government regulations.
Trumka said “[t]here’s no question” it’s more dangerous because we already “lose 150 workers every single day in this country to occupational injuries and disease” but will only go up because of the administration choosing to shrink the bureaucratic state.
“[A]s a result, more workers are going to die on the job, not go home and be able to realize their family,” the far-left big whig concluded.
