America’s economy has swung out of balance.
It’s getting harder to get by, let alone get ahead. Everyday Americans are working more than ever before. Our work has created record wealth for an economic recovery that’s been everywhere but ordinary peoples’ wallets. Our economic rules unfairly favor corporate CEOs and the rich because they manipulate the rules in their favor. Almost no one stands up for average Americans these days, and now there is a Supreme Court case that threatens to make it even worse. Everyone who works should be able to make ends meet, have a say about their futures, and have the right to negotiate together for better wages and benefits that can sustain their family.
Today, the America Works Together coalition will deliver a petition with more than 100,000 signatures to the offices of the Center for Individual Rights – the group behind the case – showing that Americans stand with working people, and not with wealthy special interests.
