We still have many legislative battles ahead of us, especially ones that would take away our retirement. We are also likely to see more attacks on official time and our voice at work. That’s why we can’t rest just yet. Now is a good time to schedule a visit with your members of Congress as they go home for August recess. They need to hear from us, not just from the wealthy and CEOs.
Call Congress and tell your member of Congress to protect your retirement and your voice at work.
