Chicago Federation of Labor
Be there Thursday, August 8 to protest outside of the American Legislative Exchange Council [ALEC] 40th Anniversary Conference in Chicago August 7-9.ALEC is bringing state politicians to Chicago to push a dangerous agenda that rewards greedy CEOs at the expense of middle class families and our public schools and puts our safety at risk. Forty years of ALEC is nothing to celebrate.When greedy corporations are allowed to make the rules, our community suffers. Good full time jobs are outsourced or replaced by part time jobs at low wages while CEOs and corporations dodge their fair share of taxes. That’s why students, workers, faith leaders, retirees, environmentalists and community activists are speaking up about ALEC and shady corporate front groups like them.Can we count on you to be there?
