700 striking workers at Momentive in Waterford, NY have a message for Donald Trump and Steve Schwarzman: What about us? *
Trump promised to restore good jobs for millions of American workers, and picked Wall Street billionaire Stephen Schwarzman to Chair his “Strategic and Policy Forum” to help create jobs and boost economic growth.
But Schwarzman isn’t a champion for working people. He’s a Wall Street billionaire with a personal fortune of $11.1 billion and has a history of driving down workers’ standard of living at the companies he owns.
Momentive fell prey to Schwarzman’s Wall Street financial interests that destroyed good jobs, and cut pay and benefits. Apollo Global Management – the firm that owns the bulk of Momentive – has also been one of the puppet masters driving down workers’ standard of living at Momentive for years. Workers are paying the price for their greed, but they are standing strong and making sacrifices on the picket line to protect their livelihoods.
Stand with the working families on strike at a rally on February 9th right outside Schwarzman’s posh Park Avenue apartment to demand good jobs in upstate New York.
When: February 09, 2017 • 5:30 PM
Where: Steve Schwarzman’s Apartment • 740 Park Avenue , New York, NY

“They’ve been doing this to us for years. We aren’t greedy, we aren’t asking for much — just a fair contract, and some decent benefits for the younger guys,” said Momentive worker John DeSantis.
Let’s make sure Schwarzman and Trump hear us loud and clear Feb 9: If you really want to support good jobs and benefits for workers, start in Waterford.
