AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders on Senate Infrastructure Proposal

WASHINGTON — 

AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement on the infrastructure blueprint released today by Senate Democrats:

“This is the kind of infrastructure blueprint America’s communities need. The plan put forward today creates good jobs that can sustain working families, asks those who can afford to contribute more to pay their fair share of the cost of improvements, and invests in quality public services while protecting against dangerous and costly privatization schemes. We look forward to working with congressional leaders as further details of the plan are developed.”
