Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Signing of Comprehensive Financial Reform
WASHINGTON - July 21 - Today officially marks a new day on Wall Street – one where working people's voices are finally being heard. President Obama and the leadership in Congress – with the help of America's workers -- have achieved a landmark accomplishment in beginning to shift our nation away from the control of big bankers and CEOs and towards working families and Main Street.
Today's signing of comprehensive financial reform into law is a major victory and joins a growing list of progress, dismantling the harmful legacy left by George W. Bush and the Republican Party. We will continue to fight to get and keep our country on track towards an economy that works for everyone.
