Working Families

 America’s working families are facing tremendous challenges today. Stagnant wages, attacks on collective bargaining, attempts to weaken retirement security, and a tax code that is rigged against working people have all weakened the American Dream.

 The percentage of workers represented by labor unions has dropped from 23% to 12% since 1983. And as a result, today, for the first time in more than 40 years, a majority of Americans are not part of the middle class.

 The single most effective way to rebuild the middle class is to provide more Americans with the benefits of union representation. Unions empower more Americans to participate in our democracy. They give working families a strong voice. They stand up for the rights of workers, women, people of color, and retirees.

 When unions are strong, America is strong.

 David Cicilline is standing up for working families and fighting back against Republicans who want to weaken collective bargaining rights. In Congress, he has voted against efforts to cut the National Labor Relations Board’s budget and weaken the ability of employees to organize.

 Instead, David is working to raise the minimum wage, ensure equal pay for women, and provide families with access to paid leave. It’s no wonder the Rhode Island AFL-CIO endorsed Congressman Cicilline earlier this year and praised his “continued work in Congress to protect working people and to pass legislation that is good for all Americans, and for all Rhode Islanders.”
