Nothing matters.

It’s been hard to avoid that feeling the past few years. It doesn’t matter if our President brags about assaulting women, uses the White House to enrich his businesses, pays off a porn star, hires his children, praises and hires white supremacists, colludes with Russia, puts children in cages, blows up the deficit, overturns the precedents and protocols that hold our fragile democracy together.

Every one of my colleagues has an obligation to pursue the truth, regardless of the politics.

A top national labor leader is touting a new multilateral trade deal, and says his union side much improved the Trump administration's initial proposal.

The comments from Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, came Wednesday, just before the House overwhelmingly approved the pact called the USMCA.

The new deal between the United States, Mexico and Canada, which now heads to the Senate, would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

Just now, The House of Representatives passed a revised version of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The deal will be considered by the Senate in early 2020.

For over a year we have been working to force essential improvements to Trump’s worse-than-the-original NAFTA 2.0 deal. That non-starter was rigged for Big Pharma to lock in high medicine prices and would have done nothing to stop NAFTA outsourcing of jobs or pollution.
