Latinos United for a Fair Economy is a campaign led by Latino organizations that urges Congress and the President to support policies that provide economic security and empowerment to Latino families, improving our standard of living. Latinos United for a Fair Economy is guided by the following principles:
Ensure a fair playing field for employers and employees alike by supporting vigorous enforcement of employment laws to deter and remedy illegal practices, equal pay initiatives to remove unfair pay disparities and boost Latinas’ and families’ incomes.
Increase opportunities for small businesses to grow, and training Latino workers to compete and thrive in the 21st century economy.
Oppose cuts to safety net and income support programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security, which provide critical income and health care for the elderly, disabled, and children.
Invest in our youth and future by funding education from pre-school to graduate school, as well as job training programs.
Promoting the appointment of talented Latino leaders to positions at key agencies that will help our community’s economic prospects.
