Watch to see which companies start to buy back stock. If your company is one of them, it is time for unions to use their collective bargaining power to demand that this money be used for increased wages or new product investments.Just a few weeks ago Gary Cohn, the National Economic Council director, was in attendance when the Wall Street Journal asked a group of CEOs whether they were planning to increase their business investment with the new tax cash windfall they would receive — none of them were.
Unions must help lead the charge and make sure that business leaders use the money in the way President Donald Trump has promised they would. If the people don’t take the initiative, the powerful will continue to give the profits to themselves. We need to help the union voices be heard again and support their efforts to increase investment in America.
