Work is an essential part of our lives. We work to put food on the table, pay for housing and medical care, and to support our families. We work to take care of elderly and sick loved ones. We work to take care of our children.
Too often, though, workers are forced to pick between taking care of sick family members or children and earning money to pay the bills. They are forced to work in unsafe conditions. They aren’t paid a living wage.
What if we had politicians in North Carolina who take the concerns of working families seriously? What kind of public policies would support working people instead of taking advantage of them? This election, workers’ rights are on the ballot.
