Listen: LaGrange on America's Workforce Radio
UCOMM's Kris LaGrange talks about recent current events and labor news with Ed 'Flash' Ferenc
On Thursday, November 29th, UCOMM’s Kris LaGrange was a guest on Ed ‘Flash’ Ferenc’s America’s Workforce Radio. On the show he discussed Gov. Bevin’s calling the Kentucky Education Association (KEA) thugs, in response to Kentucky teachers protesting changes to the state’s pension system. Bevins also claimed the protests would lead to an increase in children being sexually abused in the state. LaGrange called Bevin’s remarks inappropriate and unprofessional. On Nov. 14, Bevin spoke to the Kentucky Association of County Officials and said, “… Breaking the backs of the teachers union in this state as the controlling interest in Frankfort is going to be one of the best things that ever happened for Kentucky.” LaGrange also talked about Rep. John Faso (R-N.Y.), who is pressuring the Transportation Department to withhold funds from big projects in New York until the Scaffold Law is repealed.
