Our Priority Issues

An app-based driver participates in an airport action. He holds a sign from his car that reads "Fair Pay and Safe Jobs."

We're Building a Good-Jobs Economy

Nearly half of all workers in the U.S. make less than $15 per hour. More people than ever are working in jobs that pay too little and offer too few benefits.

We’re leading the fight for a good-jobs economy, in which every single job is a good job, everyone who wants a job can get one, and everyone has economic security between jobs. A good-jobs economy is a just and inclusive economy in which all workers have the opportunity to thrive.

We won’t stop until every job is a good job.
