President Trump’s Policies Are Hurting American Workers

Authors Karla Walter, David Madland, Alex Rowell, Caius Z. Willingham, and Malkie Wall describe how President Trump is rolling back the protections that ensure that Americans can be safe on the job, receive fair pay and benefits, save for retirement, access high-quality training programs, have a voice in their workplace, and not be discriminated against at work.

On the campaign trail and in office, President Donald Trump has promised to fight for the American worker. Yet in just over one year on the job, President Trump’s actions have repeatedly betrayed this promise. His administration has rolled back protections to ensure that American workers can be safe on the job, receive fair pay and benefits, save for retirement, access high-quality training programs, have a voice in their workplace, and not be discriminated against at work.

To hold President Trump accountable, the Center for American Progress Action Fund’s American Worker Project is tracking every action the president takes to weaken job protections for Americans.
