This Labor Day, the Mountain Party reiterates our commitment to the labor movement. From Starbucks to Amazon, workers across the country are banding together to win better pay and benefits and a greater say in their workplace.
As a party, we fight to ensure that progressive policy measures can be enacted which will benefit the working class. This includes raising the minimum wage to a living wage, supporting the right for public employees in West Virginia to engage in collective bargaining, and to combat wage theft by employers.
None of these policies will become law, however, without a reinvigorated, fighting union movement. We encourage everyone to reach out to your local, trade, or industrial union and begin the process of organizing your workplace. We must all be responsible for building the labor movement we wish to see.
