    The ‘Aging Crisis’ Is Actually Just a Labor Crisis for the Wealthy
    07/23/19 - Teamsters local 570
    July 23, 2019 | ECONOMY | We see endless news articles and columns implying that the prospect of a declining number of workers supporting a growing population of retirees is some sort of crisis. The people making such assertions really need some knowledge of demographics…If simple arithmetic shows that the people shortage story is nonsense, then why does it continually appear in the media.

    Take ACTION- U.S. Department of Labor Attacks IBEW Members
    07/19/19 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    Brothers & Sisters, IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson is asking that all IBEW members take action to fight a proposal under consideration in the U.S Department of Labor (DOL). The proposal would establish a system in which a non-union contractor could recognize its own “apprenticeship program” that would not be subject to many of the same requirements that IBEW DOL recognized apprenticeships are. Currently the construction industry is temporarily exempted from the proposal. There is great concern that this exemption will not be part of the final regulation. Nonunion builders are eager to eliminate it, opening up the industry to apprenticeships with lower standards and greater risks. All IBEW members are being asked to submit comments to the DOL in support of the construction industry exemption.
