Active Ballot Club

All across the country, corporations and the ultra-wealthy are funneling unprecedented amounts of money into our political system.  Their goal is to create an unbalanced and unfair economy where wages are as low as possible and profits replace respect for the workers that created them.  Active Ballot Club (ABC) seeks to level the playing field. By bringing together thousands of workers, our political concerns can be amplified to a decibel that is impossible to ignore.  ABC turns pocket change into big change for working families by fighting for:

  • Increasing the minimum wage.
  • Paid sick leave.
  • Equal pay for equal work.
  • Overtime pay.
  • Safe line speeds at packing houses.
  • Unemployment insurance.
  • Immigration reform.
