During the 2015 Legislative Session, working families were attacked over and over in what in has been described by many as the most egregious assault on workers in our state’s history.
To remind workers which side individual legislators stood, the WV AFL-CIO is introducing a new weekly communication called the “Anti-Worker Roll Call Vote of the Week.”
In the new weekly communication, one specific, anti-worker vote will be identified, explained and the actual roll call vote then posted on the WV AFL-CIO webpage and Facebook account as well as shared via Twitter. The WV AFL-CIO will announce a new “Anti-Worker Roll Call Vote of the Week” each week through the month of December.
Feel free to copy, post, re-tweet or share so the message is delivered as broadly as possible!
Bill Number: SB 361

For public construction projects under $500,000, the prevailing wage has been abolished, opening the door for out-of-state contractors to bring outside and illegal workers into West Virginia at taxpayer expense.
