What’s happening to the middle class?
Income for average families is down. Jobs are scarce. Opportunities working people thought they could count on no longer exist. For many New Yorkers, times are tough. And they could get even tougher.
Because some politicians are putting the retirement security of hard-working New Yorkers on the chopping block.
But going after the pensions of firefighters, teachers, nurses, school bus drivers, police officers – the people we all depend on -- is the wrong way to go. It's time to rebuild the middle class, not attack what’s left of it.
Working New Yorkers have been the backbone of our success for generations. When they suffer, we all pay the price. Call Albany at 1-877-255-9417. Tell them to fight for the middle class and STOP the attack on our pensions.
