Tell President Obama: Sign the executive order that would give 2,000,000 federal workers a living wage
With over 2,000,000 workers receiving poverty-level wages, the federal government is by far the largest employer of low paying jobs in the country. It exceeds McDonald's (600,000) and Walmart (900,000) combined.
These jobs are found in every corner of the country, contributing to the rise of poverty and income inequality.
President Obama could put a stop to this with the stroke of a pen, by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay a living wage and respect workers' rights.
On May 21, many of these federal workers walked off their jobs in order to make their voice heard. Please join with Daily Kos and Presente.org to stand with these brave workers by signing our petition telling President Obama to issue an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay a living wage and respect workers' rights.
