The American economy will grow stronger, from the bottom up, once we end our two-tiered economic system and ensure that all workers have the same rights. President Obama's executive action is a major step forward.
The Campaign for America's Future joined Good Jobs Nation and the co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus to urge President Obama to issue executive orders that would boost wages and strengthen worker rights.
All the talk is about "governing" and "getting stuff done." But when the two parties begin to agree, Americans should hold onto their wallets. This is the way the rules get rigged to favor the few.
