How Cash Helps Workers Strike Back

05. 10. 2022

Guaranteed income can boost the power workers have to demand better wages and working conditions from their employers.

As leaders from organizations that fight for workers’ rights, build the power of low-income people, especially people of color, and build economic power for all Americans, we are especially interested in how the current moment is an opportunity to shift power in our economy. Our organizations — Economic Security Project, Community Change, and Jobs With Justice — have partnered with the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA on a project to explore the role a robust cash safety net — one that includes guaranteed income — has on building worker power and reshaping our economy towards justice.
