President Donald Trump’s actions and rhetoric over his first year run counter to the values of working people. In fact, 96.5% of you said the Republican agenda did not help working families, when we asked in a recent survey.
As Trump prepares to address the nation, we want your voice to be heard. So, we are creating social media materials that share the voice of the people.
Tell us the one word that you feel sums up the state of our union under Trump.
My word is “resilient” because we’ve seen an unprecedented number of working families standing up to anti-worker legislation.
No matter what word you thought of, the effect of the Trump agenda can be summed up with this one: division. Trump has used his office to abandon our values and give cover to racism and other forms of bigotry.
But the union movement knows that our greatest strength lies in our unity. In the same survey a couple weeks ago, 87.4% of you said that protecting the freedom to stand together in union for better wages and benefits was the most important issue facing working people in 2018.
Share what word you would use to sum up the state of our union under Trump right now.
Our freedom to join in union is how we continue to build strong communities and hold the line against this administration’s divisive attack on working people.
Add your voice to ours because whatever comes out of Trump’s mouth on Tuesday night, we will press ahead with a positive agenda that unites us.
