Statement by NC State AFL-CIO on Enactment of Anti-Worker H.B. 318

 “…proof for any voter who still needed it that their governor cannot be trusted to defend working people.” — MaryBe McMillan

RALEIGH, N.C. (October 28, 2015) – The North Carolina State AFL-CIO issued the following statement on the enactment of House Bill 318, which Governor McCrory signed into law, today.

“Governor McCrory has signed a law, H.B. 318, that will starve people struggling to find work, will make it harder for local police and local governments to protect and serve the public, and will make it easier than ever for criminals and unscrupulous employers to exploit immigrant workers,” said MaryBe McMillan, secretary-treasurer of the North Carolina State AFL-CIO. “Signing an abusive law dishonestly named the ‘Protect North Carolina Workers Act’ is proof for any voter who still needed it that their governor cannot be trusted to defend working people.”
