Faith Leaders, Community Groups, Labor, and members of the Occupy Wall St movement are mobilizing in support of workers across New York and gearing up for a July 24th, “Workers Rising Day of Action.”
Across New York, our livelihoods are under attack. After years of massive layoffs and high rates of unemployment, wages and benefits are being cut.
We are working longer hours without overtime pay, health insurance or any retirement benefits.
Full-time work shouldn’t keep you in poverty. It’s time for workers to band together and demand respect in our work places. It is time to tell our elected officials that New York needs a raise. It’s time for broader prosperity across the country.
Fight for better jobs, better wages and the rights of all workers!
July 24 will be the launch of a workers movement in NYC and beyond. Folks from around the state will be joining us at the Day of Action in NYC.
