AFL-CIO to Lead Protest at Heritage Foundation Today(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Tefere Gebre (left) will lead today’s protest at the Heritage Foundation to highlight their efforts to restrict the minimum wage and strip workers’ rights. The protest (which does not include civil disobedience) starts at 11:30a at 214 Massachusetts Ave NE (next to Union Station). Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint last week refused to debate AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the minimum wage and Heritage, the influential right-wing think tank, continues to lead efforts to block economic opportunity for America’s minimum wage workers. photo: Gebre being arrested at last October's immigration rights civil disobedience protest at the US Capitol.
