Working for working women
Standing up for labor doesn’t just mean standing up for men in hard hats. Standing up for labor also means standing up for teachers and nurses, it means standing up for women who build bridges and build communities.
From my home state of Ohio to states like Wisconsin and Maine, we have seen an all-out attack on working women. We have seen working women silenced, marginalized, and thrown out of their jobs.
Across the country, women are being forced to unfairly pay for a political agenda that puts the priorities of the super wealthy and big corporations over the needs of our middle-class families. This is an agenda that is not only anti-working family and anti-labor, it is blatantly anti-woman.
Now it is up to us to fight back. It is up to us to get to work for working women.
Together, we can repeal dangerous legislation like SB5 in Ohio that targets teachers and other workers, and fight the backwards policies of anti-worker Governors like Scott Walker. Together, we can tell Speaker Boehner and his band of Tea Party Republicans to stand up for the middle-class Americans who built our country, not the big corporations who only find new ways to ship American jobs overseas.
We can only truly move forward as a country if we do so together, women and men alike. Only then can we make sure that every man and woman has a chance at the American Dream.
