During the Raise Up America campaign, Members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus will partner with fast food workers in New York City, retail sales clerks in Chicago, military uniform makers in Tennessee and other low-wage workers nationwide to demand solutions that put more money into the pockets of working people.
Because big, profitable employers like McDonald’s and Walmart must learn that better wages for their workers isn’t just the right thing to do, it also means millions of families will have more money to spend at their stores and raise up the entire economy.
The needs of low-wage workers have been ignored for far too long.
