Update: Stopping the Corporate Cabinet

No matter who we voted for last November, none of us wants a cabinet filled with Wall Street billionaires or fast-food executives who prefer robots to human workers. That's why CWAers are mobilizing to Stop the Corporate Cabinet.

Over the next several weeks, and for as long as it takes, CWA locals are leafleting worksites at least one day a week about these nominees. CWA members are calling their Senators to tell them to oppose these crony capitalists.

This week, our focus is Secretary of Treasury pick Steve Mnuchin – a former Goldman Sachs banker who tried to foreclose on the home of a 90-year-old woman for a 27-cent payment mistake.

Call your Senators now at 1-866-692-1725. Tell them to block the corporate takeover of our government by opposing the nomination of Steve Mnuchin for Secretary of Treasury.

Mnuchin personally profited from families' losses during the Great Recession. At the height of the Wall Street debacle that caused the Great Recession, he purchased failed banks and savings and loans then moved to foreclose on tens of thousands of working and middle-class families and seniors.

For a presidential candidate who railed against Wall Street "getting away with murder," naming Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary is a slap in the face of millions of working families who will be victimized by this Wall Street-rigged economy.

Other picks that CWAers have been working to block include Commerce Secretary pick Wilbur Ross, a billionaire known as the "king of bankruptcy," who devastated communities by buying up companies and shipping jobs overseas; Secretary of Labor pick Andrew Puzder – CEO of fast-food conglomerate CKE Restaurants, who opposes minimum wages and overtime; and Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services, who has a radical plan to destroy Medicare and force seniors to rely on private insurance.
