On January 11, 2016, hundreds of social workers, public health nurses, teachers, first responders and others across the country gathered in front of the Supreme Court to fight against this latest attempt to stop people from joining together to build a country where everyone makes enough to sustain their families.
“In my over 20 years of teaching, I’ve seen America’s economy swing out of balance in favor of corporate CEOs and wealthy special interests who manipulate the rules to benefit themselves at the expense of the rest of us. It’s already way too hard for many Americans to get by, let alone get ahead. Now there’s a new case before the U.S. Supreme Court that threatens to make things even worse.”
– Lacy Barnes, College Instructor, California Federation of Teachers, Local 1533
A group called the Center for Individual Rights, which the American Prospect recently revealed has been funded by the Koch Brothers, other right-wing one-percenters, and even white supremacists, is trying to make it even harder for public service workers – teachers like Lacy, as well as nurses, social workers, firefighters and others — to band together at work in order fight for benefits and wages we can use to provide for our families.
Tell the Center for Individual Rights: Enough is enough! It’s time to stop attacking working people — the teachers like me and other public service workers who work to make our communities better.
Sign this petition and join us as we tell the Center for Individual Rights that we will not let corporate CEOs and the wealthy special interests stop us from banding together and forming unions to make our lives better.
