Working families did not cause the downturn in the economy, but they’re the ones picking up the tab — and the struggle is even more difficult for unemployed Americans and their families. Some in our country are getting huge tax breaks while the budget burden is breaking the backs of working families, job seekers, and those least able to afford it.

Pennsylvania Wants to Work

is a project of the PA AFL-CIO, Allegheny County Labor Council, and Working America.

WE ARE ONE.
