Richard Trumka, the head of the largest union in the United States, voiced his criticism on Sunday of President Joe Biden’s move to revoke the Keystone XL Pipeline’s permit last month, which affected tens of thousands of jobs. |
The boss of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL–CIO) told “Axios on HBO” that he believes it would be a mistake to halt the pipeline’s construction because it would eliminate jobs. Estimates say that the move to scrap construction cuts 11,000 jobs and could affect 60,000 more.
