Trump Policies That Hurt Workers May Be New Wedge Issue


Since the 2016 election, Working America has found that working people are worried about many of President Trump’s workplace policies.

Chatting on her front porch with a Working America organizer named Sara, Phylis, an 87-year-old voter in Columbus, Ohio, talked about her views on good jobs and President Trump. “I wouldn’t think much of him if he took away safety standards,” she said.

Phylis has good reason to be worried. In 2015, 4,836 workers were killed on the job in the United States, and nearly 3.7 million work-related injuries and illnesses were reported.

“55 percent of women we spoke to disapprove of his position on pay and workplace safety.” – Karen Nussbaum, Working America

Working America’s Executive Director, recently penned a post at the Women’s Media Center about Working America’s conversations about anti-worker policies and how working people are responding.
