About Us

Welcome To Stand Up For Workers

Stand Up For Workers PAC was established by people who care about the basic rights of the American worker. We seek to protect the right to a fair and livable wage and benefits; to receive fair and humane treatment in the workplace, including work with dignity; and to have full access to justice, including the right to trial by jury.

Stand Up For Workers PAC will address these issues proactively by supporting candidates for public office who make workers’ rights a priority; who advocate for laws advancing the rights of workers; and who support the nomination of judges who respect those rights.

We support progressive lawmakers and their initiatives to advance and strengthen workers’ rights throughout the nation.

Workers’ rights will be on the ballot on Election Day in 2022. Workers continue to face unprecedented challenges as we begin the third year of the pandemic. For the next 10 months, The Stand Up for Workers PAC will do its part to support candidates who champion the rights of workers to be treated with dignity in the workplace, to be paid a fair wage, and to be treated equitably by qualified judges when those rights are violated. Please join us in this fight.

At Stand Up for Workers, we are in search of a common goal, to make sure our legislators are doing the right thing for workers in this country. But to be honest, we do not have the resources when acting alone to have a voice in the current political climate. As a result, we see value in pooling our time, resources and effort, and in that way, we can have an impact.

In the recent mid-term elections in 2022, we focused our support on the United States Senate, with the goal of keeping the Senate blue. And it worked. But there is more work to do. The map for 2024 looks more challenging than ever. To have a chance to keep good judges being appointed, and good laws that recognize the reality of today’s workforce, we need to work together, and speak with a single, powerful voice.

We invite you to join us in this effort.

Jim Kaster
President, Stand Up for Workers

Our Vision

A Nation that protects the freedom to work and the dignity of workers, including the right to a living wage and fair benefits,

With access to justice and meaningful remedies, including a fair judiciary and the right to jury trials for those whose rights are violated.
