Times of national emergency require us all to move beyond business as usual. We must come together as a nation and demand that our elected representatives at all levels act with urgency to protect all workers, no matter their race or where they are from.

But we must also demand that the largest, wealthiest, and most powerful corporations and industries show leadership by looking past their bottom lines to do what’s right for workers.

 

We demand immediate, sweeping action by major industries, corporations, and government to secure the health, safety and long-term economic well-being of working people across America regardless of where they work, their race, their immigration status, or current healthcare coverage.

  • Fully-funded and accessible healthcare for every worker in America, including 12 weeks' paid leave and 100%-paid testing and treatment for COVID-19.
  • Job, wage, and economic security for every worker through industry funds for lost wages, child care costs, debt relief, and housing assistance.
  • Immediate investment in the health and safety of every worker, including continuing access to personal protective equipment and training, now and in the future.
  • Working families at the center of every emergency relief package, with healthcare and financial support for working families prioritized over executive pay, shareholders, and profits.
