Houston is a rich city, so why is it so hard to make it? Too many have two or three jobs, can’t find full-time work or are asked to sacrifice hours and pay while their company reels in record profits.
Not anymore. The people who make this city work are standing up for good jobs and a new way of doing business in Houston. They are fighting for a Houston where everyone who works hard is able to get ahead and live their dream, not just struggle to get by.
We stand for the real Houston.
We believe working people are the backbone of Houston and we are getting a raw deal in this economy—working too hard for too little. At the same time the rich and powerful are doing better than ever. Corporate profits are at an all-time high, corporate bonuses are back to obscene levels, and companies are sitting on piles of cash.
We are the real Houston; We are the people who make our city’s economy work in an economy doesn’t work for us. We are a voice all Houstonians who don’t make enough to get ahead.
We believe good jobs will solve many problems our communities face.
We believe that Houston is a rich city where the people who help create the wealth are getting a raw deal. We live in crumbling neighborhoods where schools are closing and houses are vacant. We work hard every day for less and less.
We believe that our communities are hurting because very powerful special interests want to keep the game rigged so that the economy works for them, but not for all. They are aligned with politicians who don’t want working people to fight back— and they’ll win unless we stand together for good jobs and a great Houston.
We stand for a new way of doing business in Houston.
We stand for a Houston where the economy works for working people. We stand united for a new way of doing business in Houston where everyone is able to get ahead and live their dream, not just struggle to get by.
We’ll mobilize the employed and unemployed to focus on corporations who don’t pay their fair share, or don’t give back to Houston with good jobs.
