Our Campaign for Workers

There will always be a need for a defense of workers from exploitation, abuse, and adverse conditions. We as workers face many struggles on a daily basis. Whether we can afford to put food on the table, how much utilities are going to come to at the end of the month, whether we can afford a bus pass or fix our car when it breaks down just so we can make it to an 8 to 12 hour shift with little breaks and constant overworking and overextension. We do this until we retire and survive off social security so minuscule from what we paid into and labored our whole life for.

The Government has consistently failed to take into the needs of workers after all big corporations flow billions into lobbying, donations, and PACs. But what big corporations don't have is something more valuable than money itself: us, the people. We can, and we will fight back because we must.

This is our campaign, our beliefs, and our ideals. We want a better world we know we can have, one that is deserved.
