AFL-CIO president had a message for leftist activists today in Washington, D.C.: "We’ll make government create jobs, because government action is the only way to create jobs right now."

"You see, we got a long way to go, and the road will be rocky, and it’ll be rough, and we’ll fall down, and we’ll get up, and we’ll keep marching and rallying and fighting," Trumka said. "When we call for jobs, they’ll say, ‘government can’t create jobs.’ And we’ll say, ‘Just you watch.’ We’ll make government create jobs, because government action is the only way to create jobs right now."
