America’s largest organized labor-group the AFL-CIO is turning their back’s on the Democrat’s Green New Deal. The labor group sent a letter to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) for creating the Green New Deal. The labor group is not happy that the policy would destroy most of the labor jobs in America stating in a letter “cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families.”
The AFL-CIO Energy Committee states, “We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sections of our economy. It is not rooted in an engineering-based approach and makes promises that are not achievable or realistic.”
The letter continued, “We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families. We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.”
The radical left Freshman within the Democrat party are chasing away many of their solid base of voters. AOC Green New Deal is going to chase out many labor unions from supporting Democrats because their constituents will no longer have work if Democrats get their way. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are chasing away the solid Jewish voters with their anti-Semitic stances.
