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.
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.
