¿Qué significó el 15 de abril para usted? Bueno, por un lado, era el día límite para rendir su declaración de impuestos. Aunque para muchos pueda representar el muy común ritual norteamericano de entregar (a regañadientes) al gobierno sus ingresos, los que se ha ganado trabajando duramente, para nosotros en Unidos por una Economía Justa (United for a Fair Economy – UFE), es una oportunidad. Muy simplemente, es una oportunidad de hablar acerca de por qué los impuestos (y el crucial sector público, para el cual proporcionan una base y un sustento constante) son importantes.

What did April 15th mean to you?

Very simply, it’s an opportunity to talk about why taxes (and the critical public sector for which they provide a foundation and ongoing sustenance) are important.

At United for a Fair Economy, we believe that low-wage worker organizing is at the forefront of the fight for economic justice. As spelled out in our guiding principles, "Jobs with dignity and living wages, where workers have the democratic right to organize and share the wealth produced by their labor" is at the core of a fair economy.

Inequality and continued racial segregation create toxic soup

The toxic mix of extreme inequality and continued racial segregation pushes people of color into communities of concentrated poverty. The "free-market" has completely failed these communities as they are by-passed by full-service banks, high-speed internet, grocery stores with healthy food, and jobs with benefits that pay a living wage. Bold action, led by a government accountable to working people, is required to break up such concentrated poverty.
