Letter | Natalie Grossman

As corporations beg for public tax dollars, workers’ wages have remained stagnant. Wages have not kept up with the cost of living. Working people need a living wage in order to pay for quality education for their children, health care, retirement savings, and rising gas prices.

Unions are a clear path towards giving workers a decent living wage. The Employee Free Choice Act is crucial for giving workers the choice and power to form a union.

As a college student, I see many student groups on my campus advocating for different causes. I recently ran across a table for Jobs With Justice, a workers’ rights organization advocating for the Employee Free Choice Act. I signed a petition in support of the Employee Free Choice Act and encourage others to do the same. www.jwj.org/efca

We need to step up and tell Congress to pass the Employee Free Choice Act now.
