    Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, working families across Nevada will begin to receive another of their Child Tax Credit advance payments. These payments will continue for qualifying families through the end of 2021, providing vital financial assistance to working families across the state.

    “These payments are crucial for Nevada’s working families, many of whom are union members, as our state continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Nevada State AFL-CIO Executive Secretary-Treasurer Susie Martinez. “For the last year and a half, working families have borne the brunt of the pandemic — by supporting the legislation that led to these payments, our pro-labor Democratic leaders have once again stood by our union brothers and sisters and given working Nevadans a fighting chance at caring for their families. These monthly credits are just one of the many ways the Biden administration and Democratic leaders in Congress continue the fight to level the playing field and lift up our workers, both in Nevada and across the country.”

    The American Rescue Plan expanded and improved the Child Tax Credit to provide a tax break to working families as the economy recovers from the pandemic recession. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen, and Representatives Dina Titus, Steven Horsford, and Susie Lee all supported providing these monthly payments to qualifying Nevada families.

    study, released by Congressman Steven Horsford in August, showed that the Child Tax Credit pumped $179.1 million into Nevada’s economy and delivered $143.3 million into working families’ pockets in July, benefiting 560,000 Nevada children. Based on the July payments, the study estimates the Child Tax Credit Monthly Payments will continue to pump $179.1 million into the Nevada economy each month. According to that study, Nevada families received $425 on average for 560,000 qualifying children in total.

    “Solidarity Brother” Tevita Uhatafe was interviewed on national television as he visited yet another American picket line. He told NBC News, “We’re fighting for everybody.” Tevita is a member of our labor council and Transport Workers Union Local 513. On the weekly labor podcasters meeting, Tevita was referred to as "That guy who shows up at every picket line."

    This month is being renamed “Striketober” as more unions hit the streets, authorize strikes, or announce favorable contract settlements. Texans are not losing sight of our own locked-out refinery workers in Beaumont.

    Political Solidarity Grows

     AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler stays in national news almost every day. On October 14, she told an on-line audience that there are 30 strikes underway, but political battles cannot be set aside. She said, “The same people who are attacking voting rights are attacking union rights.” 

    Stacy Abrams and Liz Shuler

    Unions want the Protect the Right to Organize (PRO) Act as well as the complete Build Back Better agenda. The AFL-CIO calls on everybody to call our senators at 833-465-7142.

    Congress is facing a once in a generation opportunity to invest in American workers by passing a bipartisan infrastructure package. Passing the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act means Ohio will get $10 Billion to repair and rebuild our crumbling roads and bridges, over $1 Billion in transportation spending that will improve healthy, sustainable transportation options for tens of thousands of Ohioans. In addition to traditional infrastructure spending, Ohio will also receive $250 million to help deliver high-speed internet to all corners of the state and start building out our Electric Vehicle charging station infrastructure. Take action and send a form letter online.

    COVID pandemic exposes worker inequality, says AFL-CIO president

    The National Press Club

    By Chris Teale

    October 13, 2021

    The coronavirus pandemic is showing how inequitable the current labor system is, and workers are right to advocate for better working conditions, AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler said during a Headliners Newsmaker event at the National Press Club on Wednesday. Shuler said COVID-19 has made the public realize the lack of safe, well-paid jobs, even though millions were called “essential workers” yet faced with stagnant wages, inadequate benefits and a lack of health protections while working during the worst of the pandemic.

    Workers Want More to Rejoin Economy: AFL-CIO Chief

    Investopedia

    By Mark Kolakowski

    October 14, 2021

    Liz Shuler, president of the AFL-CIO, the largest labor federation in the U.S., has stated that workers "are not going back to how it was before" COVID-19. She notes that the climate crisis and technology have had huge impacts on the workplace, and she points to polls showing growing public support for unions amid a favorable political climate for organized labor given a supportive Biden administration in Washington, D.C. This article presents highlights of a discussion between Shuler and Julia Love, labor and tech reporter for Reuters. This took place in a session on Oct. 14, 2021, called "Help Wanted: Workers Demand More to Rejoin the Economy," part of a virtual conference organized by the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW), "The Future of Work: The Changing Global Workforce and How It's Reshaping Business."
