JOIN US on November 10th as underpaid workers stand together throughout the country for fair and equitable wages.
On the Global Day of Action, CT will be turning out to stand with workers Fighting for $15! Join us as we march from McDonalds to the L.O.B where they will then have a forum and will share their stories. Fast Food, Homecare, Healthcare, Childcare, Security, and many other workers will be joining elected officials to share their stories.
When 42% of working people in the United States are paid less than $15 per hour, it means the economy is way out of balance. Wages have remained stagnant for years -- hurting families, communities, and the economy. In particular, women and people of color are disproportionately impacted by corporations that refuse to pay fair and equitable wages.
Join CT and friends across the nation to demand a fair wage on November 10th, RSVP today!

THIS IS URGENT! Right now we have a great opportunity to create momentum to ban the sale of a big group of toxic flame retardants in consumer products but we need your help! Together with our allies Earthjustice and Consumer Federation of America, CCAG and Clean Water Action are working to get comments submitted in support of a petition asking the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban the sale of children’s products, furniture, mattresses and electronics containing toxic organohalogen chemicals.
The Commission is more likely to grant the petition if it gets flooded with public comments calling for the government to take action on toxic flame retardants in household products.Click Here to TAKE ACTION NOW!
