This summer the U.S. Senate approved a $3.5 trillion budget resolution, which includes over $100 billion for a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

But on September 19, the Senate parliamentarian issued a very disappointing recommendation regarding an immigration proposal presented to her for citizenship for millions. We’re not backing down!

Senate Majority Leader Schumer, President Biden, and Congressional Democrats committed to bringing home a path to citizenship for our neighbors and loved ones in THIS budget reconciliation package, and we will hold them to their word.

Call Senator Schumer now to ensure Congress delivers on the commitment to include a pathway to citizenship in the final reconciliation package. Immigrants cannot wait any longer!

As COVID-19 spreads, Amazon is again failing to protect our health – as workers, neighbors, customers – by failing to offer every person who works there 100% paid leave to stay home if they need to, and by failing to tell us what their plans are if COVID-19 disrupts their operations. Current research suggests that COVID-19 can live on cardboard for up to 24 hours and on plastic for up to three days. As a trillion-dollar corporation, owned by the richest person on the planet, Amazon can and should put public health before their own profits and market share. It’s dangerous and wrong that Amazon hasn’t made it easier for people to stay home nor told us – workers, customers, small-business sellers, and neighbors – what to expect if Amazon workers or facilities are exposed to COVID-19. We deserve better – join us in telling CEO Jeff Bezos what Amazon must do right now.

In New York, our communities have organized and won critical victories for workers, including a $15 minimum wage, paid family leave, protections against sexual harassment and pay discrimination, and groundbreaking new rights for farmworkers and domestic workers.

But lawbreaking corporations who tried to block our progress haven’t given up. These companies have found a way to thwart the laws they don’t like: by forcing New Yorkers to sign arbitration clauses. Over half of New Yorkers have unwillingly signed away our rights to go before a judge or jury when companies break the law. And because the Department of Labor is too underfunded and weak to address all violations, companies are free to exploit their workers without consequences. As a result of New York’s enforcement crisis, companies steal almost $3 billion from hardworking New Yorkers every year, in the form of wage theft.

Support the Empowering People in Rights Enforcement Act and restore accountability for lawbreaking corporations.
