    (Information contained in AFL-CIO press release dated: August 11, 2021)

    Statement from AFL-CIO Acting President and Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler on Senate Republicans blocking a public floor debate from starting:

    American democracy is at risk. Extremist lawmakers are waging an assault on voting rights, corporations are denying working people's rights to stand together with our co-workers in unions and chronic underinvestment has devastated working families—all fueling skyrocketing inequality. Saving American democracy now depends on exercising democracy in the U.S. Senate. That means passing the PRO Act, the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act, the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Build Back Better investment agenda with a simple 50-vote majority. We won’t let the authoritarianism of an anti-worker minority...
