We're five months into a health and economic crisis. 18 million are out of work. But instead of sending another stimulus check, or doing ANYTHING to help people pay their rent and bills - The White House is telling workers to . That's it. That's their plan.

In a one line order, the DC Circuit refused to rehear our ETS petition. Nearly 150,000 people have died from the coronavirus and still no national standard for workers who need protections during a pandemic. Shameful.

When John Lewis marched on Washington, across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and through the halls of Congress, he marched for us. Now it’s on all of us to continue his righteous march for equality, justice and dignity.

There is no distinction among human beings. An attack against one of us is an attack against all of us. This announcement only will energize our efforts to defeat Donald Trump and everyone who would embrace his politics of hate. The 2020 census is vital to working families.

Every person counts. Period. It is that simple. We are all brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, neighbors, co-workers, members of a community. We all contribute to America, regardless of our place of birth, race or immigration status.

Once more, this administration has actively moved to create hatred and division at a time when our country is crying out for unity and justice. This memo is not only unconstitutional, it is a direct attack on the fabric of our nation and our core democratic institutions.

Today’s announcement flies in the face of our national values and betrays the fundamental truth that we should honor every human being who lives and works in America.

Terribly sad to hear of the passing of Civil Rights icon Congressman John Lewis. The world is a better place because of the sacrifices this great man made. We have lost a champion for working people, and the entire labor movement sends condolences to all his loved ones.

Workers and our unions will continue to advocate for a federal standard that protects all working people, private and public, no matter where we live.

Virginia had to step in where the administration has failed woefully to protect workers who are risking our lives and our livelihoods during this pandemic.

The virus continues to pose a grave danger to working people and this strong, enforceable standard requires state employers to improve working conditions through clear, science-based measures, preventing further outbreaks in our communities.

We commend Virginia for being the first state in the nation to issue a comprehensive standard to protect all workers from -19.

Teachers want to go back to the classroom. But they want to do it safely, just like all workers do.
