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.

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