Workers' Rights

At just $7.25, the federal minimum wage is not enough for a full-time worker to afford housing in any city in this country. Millions of hard working people are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet. Its time we stand up and say that no worker in this country that works a full-time job should have to live in poverty.

Putting working folks first:

  • Establish a federal minimum wage of $15/hr. starting in 2022.
  • Establish a federal guaranteed jobs program.
  • Index the minimum wage to inflation.
  • Ensure workers have the right to collectively barging across all 50 states, Guam, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa.
  • Target employment for those who have been systematically shut out of economic growth.
  • Ensure job training and local hiring will reflect the racial and gender diversity.
  • Invest in and prioritize communities of color and women-owned businesses, cooperatives and employee-owned firms,  as well as community-owned and municipal enterprises.
  • Enact federal legislation that guarantees equal pay throughout the workforce
  • Establish a federal guarantee of overtime pay protections for workers.
  • Establish legislation that guarantees paid family leave to workers.
  • Raise the federal tipped minimum wage to $15/hr. by 2022.
  • Support legislation such as H.R.5000; “Employee Free Choice Act.”
