Our Families

If the system gave Us a real voice in Washington, our families could count on high quality, affordable education; fair pay and benefits; and retirement security.

But Big Business is the one calling the shots, putting bottom line profits ahead of what our families need.

Connect the Dots

Let’s look at the issue of Fair Pay and connect the dots

$$$

The Chamber of Commerce spent $53 million in 2007 to stop an increase in the minimum wage. So Washington is stuck in neutral. Even though...

3/4

Of everyday Americans believe that the minimum wage should keep a full-time worker out of poverty.

10 million+

The number of working Americans living in poverty.

300 to 1

Corporate CEO compensation is 300 times more than the average worker salary.

The Solution

Let’s build a small donor matching system for funding campaigns. And make it about Us.

We know hardworking Americans can’t make it on starvation wages. Citizen owned elections would empower Us to fight back against the Big Business lobbyists and pass laws that give our Families a fighting chance.

Voices from around the country.

I believe that getting big money out of our politics will positively affect the health of Americans. By getting rid of the chemical industry’s influence we will be able to remove the harmful chemicals and ingredients that are currently allowed in our personal care products and food supply (often unknown to the consumer). As a parent this issue is important to me because of the links between these harmful ingredients and behavioral health issues, chronic health conditions, and cancers.
