A poverty workforce hurts everyone. These are our families, our neighbors, our friends, our communities-this is us we are talking about! We have to take care of each other. Big business and greedy corporations aren't looking out for us.
No one should have to live in poverty who works full time, and unions support fair treatment of all workers.
If we sit by and wait for corporations to "give" more to the workers or the economy to "stabilize," with the exception of a few progressive companies, we are going to find ourselves in a society without a middle class. We will be left with only the ruling class and the working poor.
