Marking nearly one year since the first ever Raising Wages Summit, the AFL-CIO released a new report, Fighting for a Better Life: How Working People Across America are Organizing to Raise Wages and Improve Work, detailing the successes, struggles and path ahead to raise wages for working people.
The report finds that over the last year income inequality has shifted from a problem we discuss to a problem we can solve, and points to clear and unequivocal steps for a path forward. Armed with the solutions outlined in the report, the central conclusion is that America is ready to move beyond the discussion of income inequality and is beginning to write new rules that will shape the economy.

As part of its commitment to empower union women, the Coalition of Union Women (CLUW) provides its members with health information. To assist us in tailoring that information, we created a short survey with one of our Spread the Word campaign partners, HealthyWomen," announces CLUW President Connie Leak.
President Leak explains the survey results will allow HealthyWomen to work with CLUW to provide CLUW members with the health information they want on a regular basis, delivered via the communications format/s they prefer.
The short survey, which is going out via “Survey Monkey,” is called Getting to Know You and Your Health Needs: Audience Survey for Women. You can access it here:
