All hard-working Americans should be able to earn a livable wage and have a decent standard of living, including paid time for family leave, vacations, and sick leave. Employees should have rights at work, and the chance to be represented on key decisions that affect their lives and livelihoods. 


8.7 million workers in 2016 were below the poverty line. [1]


In other countries with similar income levels, including France, Germany, and Denmark, workers are guaranteed family, vacation, and sick leave. [2]


In 2017, Americans represented by trade unions had 19% higher median earnings than those without union representation. [3]
