AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Supreme Court Decision to Hear the DAPA and Expanded DACA Case

Supreme Court Should Approve Policies that Will Provide Much-needed Relief to Immigrant Working Families

We applaud the Supreme Court's decision to take up this case, which will have profound consequences for our immigrant brothers and sisters who live and work every day under a cloud of fear, as well as for racial and economic justice in our country.  We are confident that the Court will reverse the Fifth Circuit and allow the DAPA and expanded DACA policies to go into effect, affording millions of people the opportunity to apply for work authorization and temporary protection from deportation. We encourage the Department of Homeland Security to take all steps necessary to ensure these much-needed policies can be implemented as soon as possible after the Court issues its decision this summer.

Marking nearly one year since the first ever Raising Wages Summit, the AFL-CIO released a new report, Fighting for a Better Life:  How Working People Across America are Organizing to Raise Wages and Improve Work, detailing the successes, struggles and path ahead to raise wages for working people.

The report finds that over the last year income inequality has shifted from a problem we discuss to a problem we can solve, and points to clear and unequivocal steps for a path forward.  Armed with the solutions outlined in the report, the central conclusion is that America is ready to move beyond the discussion of income inequality and is beginning to write new rules that will shape the economy.
