Why this matters
Are you fed up with a minimum wage that has remained stagnant for decades while CEO pay has continued to skyrocket? Do you stand with agricultural workers who continue to work dangerous and low-paying jobs with few labor rights? Do you want to see a response to the COVID-19 pandemic that puts workers’ needs before multinational corporations?
North Carolina deserves better. Our state provides some of the worst unemployment benefits in the nation in the face of record unemployment numbers. Our state has the lowest union membership rate in the entire country–the direct result of crippling (and misleading) laws like “right to work”. Workers across the state have been stripped of their freedom to join together and demand a fair deal from their employer.
It is absolutely critical that voters make their voice heard this November and elect representatives who will champion the cause of working people and fight for better wages, safer jobs, and laws that hold massive corporations accountable. This town hall is your chance to have a conversation about pressing issues for workers and the upcoming elections with four of our labor-endorsed congressional candidates:
- Deborah Ross – District 2
- Kathy Manning – District 6
- Pat Timmons-Goodson – District 8
- Moe Davis – District 11
