Republicans promised the American people a tax bill for Christmas, and this week they delivered. It’s definitely a bill for working people and the poor because by 2025, they’ll pay more. For them, poverty is the new black. By contrast, Congress bestowed 83 percent of the new tax law’s benefits on...

Ford hit Michigan and its auto workers with some crappy holiday news. Instead of building a $700 million electric vehicle factory in Michigan as promised in January, Ford will construct the plant in Mexico. Ford reneged on its promise to Michigan workers just days after the Senate...

A giant sucking sound, louder than a freight train, noisier than a tornado, shriller than Ross Perot yelling, “I told you so,” blasted across the nation yesterday as Republicans in the U.S. House passed their tax plan. It was the terrible sound of jobs swept out...

Congressional Republicans are selling a trickle-down tax scam times two. It’s the same old snake oil, with double hype and no cure. A single statistic explains it all: one percent of Americans – that is the tiny, exclusive club of billionaires and millionaires – get 80 percent of...

Workers cast votes based on Trump swearing he would end the trade cheating that kills American jobs. This week, though, workers got bad news from Washington, D.C. President...

Ever worsening is the chasm between the loaded, who luxuriate in gated communities, and the workers, who are hounded at their rickety gates by bill collectors. Even though last week’s Bureau of Labor Statistics report showed unemployment at a low 4.4 percent, wages continue to flat-line, killing both...

American workers have made a simple request of politicians for decades: stop the trade violations that kill American manufacturers and jobs. American factories and workers are willing to compete. They are able to compete. But the playing field must be level. American workers and employers can’t...

Donald Trump is right. The House health insurance bill is “mean, mean, mean,” as he put it last week. He correctly called the measure that would strip health insurance from 23 million Americans “a son of a b*tch.” The proposal is not at all what Donald...
