Rachel Rekowski,

Pittsburgh - As Donald Trump visits Pittsburgh on Thursday, labor leaders, working people, and allies will host a press conference to tell Trump that Pittsburgh is a union town, and he’s not welcome.  Speakers will highlight Trump's hypocritical history of shady business dealings, outsourcing jobs, and making Trump-branded products overseas while claiming to fight for American workers. Last month, exposed Trump's outsourcing habits - and where he could've made products in Pennsylvania instead.

Labor leaders and allies will also discuss Trump’s persistent claim that he has “tremendous support within unions”, a claim that is simply not true. He wants union votes, but it’s clear that he doesn’t value unions or working people. Trump has no plan for growth, jobs, or solving income inequality, and that’s why working people in Pittsburgh and across the country are leading the fight to elect Hillary Clinton.
