Progressive talk show host Ed Schultz spoke with United Steelworkers (USW) International President Leo W. Gerard about labor's commitment to the President's agenda.
"Were totally committed to his agenda Ed." said Gerard. "I think we’re having part of the wrong debate here. This isn't a fiscal cliff. This is a slope. And the deficit is a long term challenge."
They discussed maintaining the Bush tax cuts for the middle class and for those making under $250 thousand and fixing the country’s infrastructure which would create good-paying jobs.
