In a speech to the National Press Club, Sweeney described how America’s workers have struggled over the past 25 years as “a perfect storm of outsourcing, offshoring, tax evasion, layoffs, work speedups, wage cuts, health care cuts, pension cuts, shifting risks, bashing unions and short-changing communities” has swept across the economic landscape...

President Sweeney talked about the immediate action Congress and President George W. Bush can take to stop the erosion of good jobs in America, including:

 Guaranteeing America’s workers the freedom to form unions and bargain for a better life.

 Giving workers the same protections as corporate interests in our trade policy.

 Making it illegal for companies to buy or sell products made in sweatshop conditions.

 Repealing tax laws that encourage companies to send jobs overseas.

 Passing universal health care coverage.

 Telling corporate America to rejoin our national community by investing more in workers and less in their executives.

 Doubling the money we spend on education and job training.

 Raising the minimum wage.

This plan is a must-read for anyone concerned about the destruction of good jobs in America. Read President Sweeney’s full speech today:
