Trump’s Dangerous Ideas Will Kill Michigan Jobs

Bieber calls on Michigan GOP leaders to withdraw Trump endorsement

LANSING – Michigan AFL-CIO President Ron Bieber issued the following statement commenting on Donald Trump’s speech in Detroit today:

“All we heard from Donald Trump today was a lot of hot air. Trump doesn’t give a rip about helping working people in Michigan. If he did, he’d hire Michigan workers to make his clothes, instead of producing his ties in China and his suits in Mexico. The truth is, Trump only cares about making more money for himself.

“Donald Trump’s ideas aren’t just bad, they’re downright dangerous. Trump said auto companies should close ‘a couple of plants’ and send Michigan auto jobs to other states as a way to cut the wages of Michigan auto workers. That kind of thinking is just nuts. It would kill thousands of good-paying Michigan jobs, and send our economy right down the drain.

“Michigan can’t afford Trump’s reckless ideas. That’s why I’m calling on Republican leaders like Attorney General Bill Schuette, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, Congresswoman Candice Miller, Congressman Tim Walberg, and House Speaker Kevin Cotter to do what’s right for Michigan and withdraw their support for Donald Trump.”
