Working America is a grassroots group working to ensure that ALL workers get a fair shake. They are a friend of Eclectablog and I encourage you to join us if you can. From their About page:

Working America is the fastest-growing organization for working people in the country. At 3 million strong and growing, we use our strength in numbers to educate each other, mobilize and win real victories to improve working people’s lives.

Together, and in solidarity with working people across the country, we fight for our common interests—good jobs, affordable health care, education, retirement security, corporate accountability and real democracy. We want to ensure our kids have a quality education, our grandparents don’t have to decide between paying for their monthly medication or paying for food and that we will have a secure retirement when our working days have ended.

Since 2003, we’ve been organizing in neighborhoods across the country. We talk with our friends and neighbors to learn their needs and priorities and get them engaged on the issues that matter most. And we provide tools, research, information and assistance that can help make working people’s lives better.

I hope to see you there!
