INDIANA STATE AFL-CIO ENDORSES JOHN GREGG FOR GOVERNOR

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Representing more than 300,000 working Hoosiers from around the state in more than 800 affiliated local unions, today the Indiana State AFL-CIO officially endorsed John Gregg for Governor.

When George W. Bush assembled his first Cabinet in 2001, news reports dubbed them a team of millionaires, and government watchdogs questioned whether they were out of touch with most Americans’ problems. Combined, that group had an inflation-adjusted net worth of about $250 million — which is roughly one-tenth the wealth of Donald Trump’s nominee for commerce secretary alone.

Trump is putting together what will be the wealthiest administration in modern American history.

It is hard to find anyone more passionate about the idea of steering public dollars away from traditional public schools than Betsy DeVos, Donald J. Trump’s pick as the cabinet secretary overseeing the nation’s education system. Like many education philanthropists, she argues that children’s ZIP codes should not confine them to failing schools.

Take Action

Some Wall Street billionaires are paying less in taxes than teachers, nurses and other working people. It's time for Congress to end this unfair tax loophole.
