Millions of Americans are working their hearts out every day but still falling short of the basics of the American Dream -” a paycheck that can support a family, affordable health care, retirement security, a voice on the job and a chance to give their kids an education and a better future. This week, Change to Win launched “Make Work Pay!,” the nation’s biggest ever effort to unite the more than 50 million workers providing the vital services that our communities depend on. These are the people who heal the sick and comfort our elderly, harvest and serve our food, and clean and protect our offices and homes.
Change to Win – a federation of seven unions representing six million working people including UNITE HERE – is working with community groups, people of faith and public officials to build an unprecedented movement to ensure that our lowest-paid workers join the middle-class and share in the American Dream.
