Our economy has swung out of balance because corporate CEOs and wealthy special interests are manipulating the rules in their own favor. Meanwhile, we work longer and longer hours and still struggle to support our families. Now, these same special interests are attacking our freedom to join together in unions, which will make this out of balance economy even worse. This time, it’s through a group called the Center for Individual Rights that is pushing a case through the Supreme Court which could make it harder for working people to speak up together for better wages and benefits.
Giving working people the ability to speak up together through their unions leads to a balanced economy and fair wages for all workers. When we speak up together with one voice we get better pay, better benefits, and ensure a better quality of life for all our families. Enough is enough! It’s time to stop attacking working people — including teachers, librarians, nurses and other public service workers who work to make our communities better.
