Released just this week, a new Newsweek investigation reveals that in two of Trump’s last three construction projects, Trump choose to purchase his steel and aluminum from Chinese manufacturers rather than from United States mills based in states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. By opting to buy steel from foreign companies, Trump is depriving local workers of good jobs.
Trump has said that if he becomes president “it will be American steel that sends our skyscrapers soaring into the sky.” Yeah right. His hypocrisy from his past action rings loud and clear for Wisconsin workers.
We need to spread the news that Trump is already costing Wisconsin workers jobs. Will you volunteer this weekend to talk with voters about the real Trump? Stop into of our Labor 2016 Volunteer Centers to get started.
Donald Trump may claim to care about American jobs and the American economy, but his past business practices clearly show that he does not have Wisconsin workers or American workers in mind. By failing to purchase made-in-America or made-in-Wisconsin steel for his latest construction projects, Trump is depriving local workers of good jobs and taking money away from local economies. Instead, he chooses to send the money and the jobs overseas to China.
Refusing to buy American steel is further proof that unpatriotic Donald Trump has been stiffing American workers to pad his own pocket. Whether it is by failing to procure American-made products for his construction projects, making his ties, shirts, sheets, and clothing overseas in places like Mexico, Vietnam and Honduras, or by refusing to sit down and negotiate with the workers who run his hotels, Donald Trump has shown time and time again that he is no friend of working people or the working class.
