For years, billionaire CEOs and corporate special interests have rigged the system to amass wealth and power for themselves at the expense of working people. Those same special interests are now backing the upcoming Supreme Court case, Janus vs. AFSCME Council 31, which threatens to make things even worse by taking away the ability of working people to come together in strong unions.
Working families have had enough.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the 1,300 sanitation workers who went on strike in Memphis, Tennessee, 50 years ago organized, marched and spoke up to defend basic freedoms – freedoms that are under attack to this day.
On Saturday – two days before oral arguments in the Janus case – tens of thousands of people across the country will once again gather to defend their freedoms during the “Working People’s Day of Action.” Activists, religious leaders, union members, public service workers and others will unite with one voice to protest the rigged economy and political system.
