Workers' Rights and a living wage
It is Time for Workers to Stand Together
American workers are under attack. Over the past five decades, wages have stagnated and workers' protections have been stripped, which has resulted in a huge disparity of wealth in this country.
I will fight for all hard-working families to get the pay and benefits they've earned and will continue to support the backbone of a successful American economy: labor union organizing and the rights of workers.
It is time for workers to stand together and demand:
At least a $15/hr. minimum wage and help for small businesses to meet that requirement over a period of time.
The elimination of "Right to Work" laws, which are designed to prevent union organizing and to assist unscrupulous employers in exploiting their employees.
Earned overtime and benefits such as paid family and medical leave, sick days, vacation time, and assistance with childcare.
Equal pay for equal work.
Safe working conditions.
Strengthened collective bargaining units and freedom of association.
The protection of labor standards and employment protections.
Protection of pensions and retirement benefits.
Passage of the WAGE Act (Workplace Action for a Growing Economy), which ensures the rights of workers to organize without retribution.
