President-elect Donald Trump and right-wingers of both parties on Capitol Hill are preparing to unleash a series of economic policies that would continue the concentration of wealth at the top.
Tax cuts for the rich and corporations, deregulation of finance and worker protections, and assaults on unions would all undercut U.S. workers’ economic clout, not increase it.
Stand together and become a co-sponsor of the five-point Real Agenda for Working People to create an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few.

The five basic points are:
- Restore full employment!
- Strengthen — not gut — rules that support good jobs (including restoring value to the minimum wage).
- Protect the basic human right of worker organization.
- Level the playing field that corporate trade agreements slanted against workers.
- Raise top tax rates to invest in America and restore power to the bottom 90 percent.

In politics, unlike foreign affairs or basketball, the best defense really is a good offense. Merely resisting horrible proposals usually fails. We have to advance a positive agenda to win.
