As a labor movement one of the main qualities we look for—and count on—from anyone who aspires to occupy the Oval Office is trustworthiness. Voters need to know that we can trust our president to be truthful.
The National AFL-CIO video team had the chance to talk with Marty Rosenberg, a small-business owner in Atlantic City, who found out the hard way exactly how untrustworthy Donald Trump is and the full extent of his disregard for working people.
Marty Rosenberg thought he could trust Trump to pay what he owed for the work Marty’s company did on the Trump Taj Mahal casino. Marty quickly found out that was a mistake.
While this is a sad story, we shouldn’t be surprised. Donald Trump has a long history of busting unions and outsourcing his own products to low-wage countries. Lying to working people and refusing to pay them for their time and expertise sounds like the status quo for Trump. This shows how destructive a Trump administration would be for all of us.
If we make sure enough people see this video to hear from those who have already been duped by Trump, we have a real chance of stopping him from getting to the White House.
