Economic justice is a commitment to ensuring that all people are able to afford necessities, not preyed upon by exploitive financial industries and products, and given equal opportunity to build a successful financial future. We believe that every person in the Commonwealth is entitled to a living wage and benefit package that is sufficient to provide the basic necessities of life, including adequate housing, a nutritious diet, proper child care, sound mental and physical health care, a secure retirement and equal educational opportunity.
We believe in eliminating the extremes of wealth and poverty. We strive towards a common sense, responsible, progressive tax system based on the ability to pay. By bringing communities together, we fight for jobs, fair wages and equality in the workplace.
