For decades, the US economy has made it difficult for the working class to achieve upward mobility. Statistics show that 75% of working class Americans live paycheck to paycheck.
We need to:
- Provide American workers a fair living wage.
- Pass legislation the ensures a $15 minimum wage for all American workers that increases with the rate of inflation.
- Act to reign in the exploitative practices of corporate labor abuse.
As poor and working class Americans achieve a greater degree of economic equality, the nation as a whole will benefit greatly.
