ELECTORAL STRUGGLES

Working Families Party NY – Working within the limitations of a two-party system, Working Families Party is laying the basis for a political party of the 99%, even as we continue to work towards eliminating the ultra-right-wing GOP from government.

LABOR

#Fightfor15 – This national movement is fighting for every worker in the U.S. to have at least a $15/hour wage and the right to join a union without retaliation from their employer. Already, several cities and states around the country have adopted an incremental raise in the minimum wage to $15 an hour, including New York City. As a result of this movement, the Democratic Party platform has endorsed a $15 an hour minimum wage for the whole country. We will work hard to make sure Trump is defeated while keeping the pressure on Hillary Clinton to make sure the $15 minimum wage is passed for the whole country.

The #Fightfor15 is also fighting in unity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement for racial justice and to put an end to racist police brutality. It has united with the movement for immigration reform, for affordable child care, and for affordable home care for the elderly and disabled. It is increasingly uniting with movements for affordable housing, free quality education, free healthcare, women’s and LGBTQIA equality, and environmental justice.
