Americans value freedom — and real freedom requires an economy that works for everyone. Freedom means being able to make a living and have time for a life — time to take a loved one to the doctor, attend a parent/teacher conference, spend time with family, and retire in dignity.

But our economy is dangerously out of balance. The wealthy and big corporations have rigged the rules so they profit at the expense of hard-working Americans. They hold down wages, take away our right to join together in union, and take advantage of favorable tax laws while working American families struggle just to put food on their tables. It’s simple: when all the money goes to the wealthy few, working families struggle to get by.

NextGen America is working to make sure that everyone gets a fair shake, so we all have the freedom to join together in union and negotiate for a fair return on our work, affordable health care, and a fair tax code.
