Statement from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka after Hurricane Delta strikes Louisiana:
The entire labor movement offers our heartfelt prayers to the people of Louisiana, who continue to show amazing strength in the face of too many natural disasters. Hurricane Delta struck an already-ravaged area that just six weeks ago was hit by Hurricane Laura. The labor movement always comes together in times like these, and our people on the ground are already assessing the needs of families, and will use all our expertise and resources to help those impacted recover as quickly as possible. The people of Louisiana are resilient, and our fighting spirit will get us through this difficult time.
