The battle lines are drawn in local elections. The anti-worker establishment candidates are receiving record floods of money and favorable publicity. Our side has only us! Join the army for working families by contacting AFL-CIO Political Director Lorraine Montemayor at 214-448-1557. A long list of scheduled activities is below. Right now, advocates for working families can volunteer to take shifts to poll greet during early voting April 22-30. 

Taxpayers are scrambling to make last-minute payments due to the Internal Revenue Service in just four days, but many of the country’s largest publicly-held corporations are doing better: They’ve reported they owe absolutely nothing on the billions of dollars in profits they earned last year.
