White House Commitment on Broadband Will Breakdown Digital Divide and Create Good Jobs

Washington, D.C. (May 9, 2022) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

LIUNA welcomes today’s announcement on the expansion of affordable broadband access as part of the rollout of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The White House is helping working men and women by lowering the cost of high-speed internet for millions of Americans and ensuring that public investment in building broadband infrastructure will create good, family-supporting jobs.
