In every corner of California, and across the country, vital frontline workers have been keeping our communities safe and healthy and our economy moving during the coronavirus crisis.
But while we sacrifice, day in and day out, Congress and the White House have been busy doling out billions to massive corporations and rich CEOs.
Now, as the long-term economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic begin to come into focus, it is clear that the wealthy few and the politicians in their pockets aim to weather the coming storm on the backs of working people, through steep budget cuts, furloughs, and layoffs.
We cannot let today’s heroes become tomorrow’s unemployed. We must stand together to fight back against those who wish to take advantage of this pandemic to weaken the critical public services we provide, and our neighbors depend on.
We cannot leave working people behind. We must fight for a real #Stimulus4Workers.
