Stand Up for Strong Unions
The American Dream is based on the promise that if you work hard, you’ll be able to provide for yourself and your family. It’s the promise that we’d be able to provide opportunities for our children that weren’t available to us.
The right-wing corporate CEOs and the wealthiest 1%–the vast networks who have made it their mission to destroy us—are feeling emboldened. These folks never need to work a day in their lives, because their money works for them. The policies they push have one goal, and that’s to make them richer and us poorer. To make them stronger and us weaker. That what we are up against.
By sticking together and having strong unions, we can—and will—fight back. How we all respond to the challenges and opportunities of today and in the days to come will define who and what we are as a labor movement and a nation.
On Labor Day, stand with fast food workers, community and faith organizations united in the Fight for 15 movement. Strong. Together. United.
