Pocan Statement on Trump’s Failure to Meet with 300 Waukesha GE Employees Whose Jobs Are Being Outsourced to Canada
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, released the following statement after President Trump failed to meet with 300 Waukesha General Electric employees, whose jobs are being outsourced to Canada, during his trip to Wisconsin.
“I am disappointed, but not surprised, that President Trump can’t find time during his trip to Wisconsin to meet with the 300 General Electric employees whose jobs are getting shipped to Canada. This is yet another example – in our own backyard – of Trump giving lip service to workers without taking meaningful action to create jobs or improve their lives.
“President Trump’s true priorities are crystal clear at this point. Trump has time for $10,000 per plate fundraiser with Governor Scott Walker, so donors can snap a photo with the President, but Trump has no time for Wisconsin’s working class.”
