Connecticut Working Families is an independent political organization that stands up for hard working families across Connecticut — not Wall Street banks, lobbyists, and CEOs. We work to elect candidates that will be champions for our values.More
But our work doesn’t end on Election Day. We fight year-round to create an economy that works for everyone. We advocate for issues like raising the minimum wage, creating family friendly workplace policies like earned paid sick days, tackling the student debt crisis, ensuring every worker can retire with dignity, holding corporations accountable, and much more.
Familias Trabajadoras de Connecticut es una organización política independiente que defiende a todas las familias trabajadoras de Connecticut, en vez de defender a Wall Street, los bancos, los cabilderos y Presidentes Ejecutivos. Trabajamos para elegir a candidatos que van a ser campeones de nuestros valores.
Pero nuestro trabajo no termina el Día de las Elecciones. Luchamos todo el año para crear una economía que funcione para todos. Abogamos por temas como el aumento del salario mínimo, la creación de políticas en el trabajo que sean adecuadas para la familia, como por ejemplo el acceso a días de enfermedad, ponerle fin a la crisis por la deuda estudiantil, asegurarnos que todos los trabajadores puedan retirarse con dignidad, responsabilizar a las corporaciones y mucho más.
